The students focus on learning the coding methods from beginner to advanced level. Most of the participants are young girls between the ages of 10 to 18. With their knowledge and experience of the coding methods, the students create choreography and dance techniques.
During one of our recent classes, The girls were assigned to create a dance based off their knowledge and progress of the coding techniques. The coding suggestions were written on the board, and then we assembled the codes into actual choreography.
An example would be “move forward, toggle switch,” and the choreography included in this demonstration. The girls had the opportunity to perform their creative code dance number for their parents during our midterm presentation.
DanceLogic is a fantastic opportunity For young girls to learn about the art of STEM and how it connects to creativity and the world of dance. I find the program valuable to the youth in giving them an insight into their future goals and how they can be both professional and creative in their career.
“Learning something like dance requires practice, just like coding. The dance is more physical, but it requires the students to try, fail and try again,” says Franklyn Athias, co-founder of danceLogic. “Before long, the muscle memory kicks in and the student forgets how hard it was before. Coding is the same thing. Learning the syntax of coding is not a natural thing. Repetition is what makes you good at it. After learning the first programming language, the students can learn other programming languages because it becomes much easier.”
