My passion project- Dance!!!

Dance is a series of motions and steps coming from the soul considered a form of art and usually performed to music. There are 520 different dance forms in the whole world originated from different cultures and countries. Dance is not credited to the contribution of a specific person. Dance was first used in ancient cultures in ritualistic practices. For example, in Egypt, Greece and India, dancing before a god was an important part of temple worship. Ancient Egyptians used dance to convey a god’s story or mime the rhythmic pattern of day and night. Dancers were also featured at funerals to convey the feelings of those who were in mourning. The games at the Olympia in the 8th Century showcased the dancing of temple virgins. A dance circle was often formed, called a choros, to honour one of the gods. In the sixth century, the choros was the hallmark of theatre arts in Greece. A traditional form of ancient dance, the Bharata Nhatyam, which is based on hand movements, is performed in India today.

Wyndham Youth Resource Centre

This trip was a new experience for me as I didn’t know about the centre. One thing I didn’t know about the centre was the range of activities the youth service offered, especially the girl’s night and the boy’s night. I am interested in activities they offer. I will like to attend most of the activities, especially the excursion to aqua pulse. In my opinion the centre should start sewing and knitting club for young mums to pass their time.

Journey To School

The early morning sun shines on my face,

As I witness life and death as an undefined race.

 The river turns gold as the bright sun glows,

But that will never stop the rivers deadly flows.

 My feet turn cold like clitter clatter clotter,

My insides shiver like pitter patter potter.

 I tie the thin rope around my waist,

My heart sinks to the bottom like the fear I taste.

 I have to jump now; I have to dive,

No matter if I end this journey to school dead or alive.

 As I leave the ground I look around,

Admiring the scenery maybe one last time.

 I wish I could do this without any fear,

But this might be my end; my end might be near.

 All I think of is me falling down this river,

So I close my eyes and imagine I’m not here.

 I think happy thoughts as I sail through the air,

I let this journey be like this like I do not care.

 My friend is now falling, she’s screaming in pain,

But I can’t change this journey no matter what I gain.

How do volcanoes erupt ?

A volcano is a mountain or hill, typically conical, having a crater or vent through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapour, and gas are or have been erupted from the earth’s crust. Most volcanoes are found at the ring of fire. The ring of fire is where the tectonic plates meet beneath the Pacific Ocean.

Movements in the tectonic plates can cause volcanoes. When plates are pushed together or pulled apart, a mountain with a vent, crater and magma chamber is created. When tectonic plates move apart, rocks start building tension and pressure. This result the rocks to melt into magma. Hot magma rises up and fills the space between the plates.

When the tectonic plates come back together one of the tectonic plates gets pulled under the other, getting pushed into the earth’s interior. During this process called subduction, a piece of crust gets pushed under and the pressure underground makes it melt and turn into magma.

The building pressure underground needs somewhere to escape. As a result rocks, gas and magma erupts out of a volcano. After the magma has erupted out of the volcano, it’s called lava. Most volcanic eruptions send clouds of ash into the climate. As the lava comes out of the volcano’s crater, it cools down and builds the volcano even taller.

Volcanic eruptions can be shocking and dangerous events which may cost lives and cause a lot of damage.

Glossary

  • Interior-situated on or relating to the inside of something; inner.
  • Subduction-the sideways and downward movement of the edge of a plate of the earth’s crust into the mantle beneath another plate.
  • Tectonic plates– the two sub-layers of the earth’s crust that move and float whose interaction causes, earthquakes, volcanoes and mountains.
