Week 6

E for Entrepreneur

This week we will learn all about Entrepreneur's and Artists, including Michelle Dorrance, a Tap Dancer, and Ashley Christensen, a chef. 
An entrepreneur is someone who starts their own business. In your journal, write about if you were an entrepreneur, what business would you create? How can your business help others?
Entrepreneur's have to be creative and imaginative. They need to think outside of the box in order to come up with new and unique ideas. 
Now, let's get moving. Stand up and get ready for our warmup with Ms. Sue!
Now that you are all warmed up, let's learn our dance this week. E for Entrepreneur with Ms. Sue. Practice Part 1 before you move on to Part 2!
Michelle Dorrance and Ashley Christensen are both North Carolina women who have made a difference in their own fields. Michelle is a professional tap dancer who won the McArthur "Genius" grant. She grew up in Chapel Hill, NC and used her creativity to choreograph innovative dances that inspire so many audiences.
 
Ashley Christensen is an American chef, restaurateur, author, and culinary celebrity, born in Greensboro, North Carolina. She was James Beard Award Best Chef Southeast in 2014 and in 2017 received Eater's Best Chef in the Nation award. 
 
Before you start Part 2 of the dance, think of something you can do NOW to help your family, school, or community! Write about it, Sing about it, or Draw your ideas!
 
Now that you've practiced Part 1 of E for Entrepreneur, it's time to learn Part 2.
Be like an Michelle Dorrance and Ashley Christensen, be creative  and imaginative and come up with your style of dance. You can do whatever you like! Once you know what your dance is, teach someone else. Have fun!
