Creative Dance

...CREATIVE DANCE History of Creative Dance Creative dance is perceived differently by different sectors of the education system. In many provinces, creative dance is part of the physical education curriculum. More recently, two provinces— British Columbia and Saskatchewan— have considered placing dance under the rubric of arts education. The aspect of creative dance that is emphasized reflects the position creative dance is assigned in the curriculum. When in the physical education curriculum, creative dance lessons typically focus on development of the motor skills involved, with little concern for the experience’s aesthetic potential. In arts education, the primary focus is creative dance’s aesthetic potential. Advocates view creative dance not only as having potential for developing motor skills or aesthetic sensibility, but as a means to improve students’ self-concept and as a valuable component of an integrated curriculum. Upon closer scrutiny, however, these different ways of justifying creative dance may prove contradictory. “Creative dance” is a particular form of dance. This form is typically taught in elementary schools because unlike other dance forms, it does not require years of training. Basically, creative dance involves the use of movement elements to express thoughts and feelings. Dimondstein (1974) expands on this definition when she considers dance to be “the interpretation of a child’s ideas, feelings, and sensory impressions expressed symbolically in......

Creative people are more balanced and tolerant of others, because they know that everyone sees the world differently. Using of creative skills means not only to develop new and interesting ideas (for a better life or some of its aspects), but also for the improvement and development of the whole person. Any creative activity helps us to find personal meaning and to comprehend the own values. And this is the most important spiritual need of man, which distinguishes it from other living creatures. By studying the biographies and stories of successful people, David Galenson (economist, researcher) concluded that the peak of creative abilities can be achieved at any age. Galenson identified two types of creative......

...16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 62 1 CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY LTD AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE Dear Shareholders, Fiscal 2013 was another difficult year for Creative. We had continued to focus on the development and introduction of new products in the key product categories, and had launched a series of new exciting products that provide good potential growth opportunities. However, our financial performance continued to be adversely affected by the difficult and uncertain market conditions for our products, which impacted sales across all regions and resulted in lower revenues. Nevertheless, despite the lower level of sales, with a lower operating cost structure from the cost cutting actions in the previous years, we were able to achieve an improvement in operating results in fiscal 2013. Sales for fiscal year 2013 were US$165 million, a reduction of 14% compared to US$192 million for fiscal year 2012. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 33% in fiscal 2013, up from 19% in fiscal 2012. Net profit for fiscal 2013 was US$17 million, compared to a net loss of US$84 million in fiscal 2012. While sales were lower in fiscal 2013, operating results for the year had improved due mainly to the higher gross profit and a reduction in operating expenses of US$19 million. Gross profit was higher due mainly to a US$20 million licensing income received for the licensing of certain technologies relating to high performance GPU technology. Net results for the Group in fiscal......

...ugfgfhhjjkk hlklgfgfCreative Toys Case Creative Toys Inc. 1. If Inventory were to be written down in the 4th quarter instead of the 2nd quarter, it could cause the company to be compromised. One of the reasons that the allowance occurs in the 2nd quarter is because Browne realizes that it will make expenses appear too high, but, it will reduce the impact of the lack of future sales. However, if inventory were established in the 4th quarter, where they are expected to increase quite a bit, the transition would be easier. This is the reasoning behind Gurchick’s insistence of waiting for the 4th quarter. On the down side, if sales do not increase as expected, the company would be in substantial trouble. They will have a great deal of over stated income, which will be caught by auditors. They will make adjusting journal entries for this, which will decrease net income. If this decrease is too substantial then the books will be in the negative. Browne understands that the Chatter Chick was over produced, and is prepared to deal with the consequence. Gurchick prefers to take a gamble and hope for the best. 2. The corporate culture at Creative Toys is probably quite tense at this point. With Browne and Gurchick disagreeing over the course of action, the employees at this point are most likely wondering what the outcome of the decrease in demand will be and whether the company will be able to make it through this. I think that everyone is probably quite worried and tense at......

...Critical and Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays William L Johnson PHL/458 June 26, 2014 Jenna Lopes Critical and Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays The Describe a situation of public interest in which critical and/or creative thought could have been used for a better outcome. Describe why it is important to think critically and creatively in similar situations. One situation that comes immediately to mind is the phenomenon of climate change we are currently dealing with and how we are woefully extemporaneous to cope with it. If critical and/or ingenious thought had been utilized by all concerned, in lieu of trepidation and denial, we would be in a more preponderant position to handle and curtail these climate changes. When the data that pointed to human-induced climate change first was made public, it seemed that fear and hysteria was the mundane theme in most discussions of the quandary. It has gotten more preponderant in recent years but it may be a case of too minute, too tardy. It is paramount to cerebrate critically and ingeniously because it avails you to visually perceive the whole picture. When you cerebrate critically, all sides of the quandary such as history, a source, a context are considered making an authentic and efficacious solution to a quandary more likely. Define free will, truth, knowledge, and opinion. Explain how we use them to form thoughts. What role does each play in critically assessing situations? We have free will when we......

Creative Brief

...CREATIVE BRIEF ASSIGNMENT The Product A new traditional advertising campaign that I would like to introduce to the College of Business is a Florida Tech College of Business app. I believe that technology has played a major part in advertising campaigns lately and there is an opportunity for the College of Business to recognize this. The app will be for potential students and their parents. In the app there will be newsletters for them to read about what is going on in the College of Business. The app will also consist of explaining what COB is about and what they have to offer their potential students. Giving some statistical information about Florida Tech would be the best way to show the new students and their parents how ideal Florida Tech is among the other schools. The background on the faculty and the courses they teach will be available through the app. A calendar of COB campus activities, such as their ice cream social, the COB barbeque and other events will also be available for potential students and their parents to see. The idea of this would be to show parents that there is an opportunity for their child to get involved in campus life through the College of Business and not through illegal activities. The reason for offering a College of Business app is for potential students and their parents to have easier access to COB and not having to go online and look around for the Nathan M. Bisk, College of Business webpage. The Opportunity or Problem: A......

These four styles of thinking creatively influence our decisions each day. The affect individual decisions at work, at home, in the workplace, or in our socials encounters.

Intuition The intuitive thinker is conscious of past experiences when they have to make a decision. This type of thinker also is results oriented and relies heavy on the experience they are able to draw on in order to make a decision (Rowe 2004). The intuitive thinker uses the successes from past experience as a basis for doing things the same way for an extended period. The mistakes of the past are avoided by ensuring activities that led to unsatisfactory results are not repeated. While the intuitive thinker will benefit from not making same mistake repeated and by drawing on the successes from past experiences they may limit their ability to try new ways of doing things. If a process or particular way of accomplishing a task works continuously and......
