Just like on a dance floor, every school experiences varying levels of student engagement between those fully involved (student leaders) and those lurking on the edge (apathetic students). The same tactics to create successful social change on a dance floor (connections, relevancy, models of success, and motivation) also work to increase engagement within any school. DFT provides student leaders a new model for creating community, increasing student engagement, and fostering a culture of retention.
Students spend more time on Facebook than in class. Online social sites have become bigger than TV, books, and magazines combined. Along with massive growth came predators, identity theft, wasted time, destroyed reputations, and hacked machines. A “city” with 1 billion people has its dangers, but it also has incredible opportunities. Now is the time to learn how to get ahead by leveraging your digital identity to your advantage both in school, as a student leader, and out of school, for your career.
People in the center of a dance floor have all the fun, meet all the people, and experience the best dancing. The same is true for school. The more involved one is on campus, the more fun they’ll have, the more people they’ll meet, and the more
dancing success they’ll have. In this highly engaging and funny training, students gain an immediate understanding and desire to get more involved on campus and take advantage of the amazing opportunities a school offers beyond the classroom. Dust off your dance shoes and report to the dance floor!
