In writing the essay I Show a Child what is Possible Jacques dAmboise wanted to explain his passion for the art of dance and why he loved teaching it He begins by telling the story of his own childhood when he was forced to attend his sisters ballet classes He compliments the ballet teacher as being very wise because she captures his interest in ballet by challenging him DAmboises steady attendance to ballet class kept him from the trouble he may have faced if he had been hanging with his friends on the streets He comments on how many of them were in gangs and he becomes a professional dancer As his professional career ended Jacques dAmboise decided he was not ready to completely retire from dancing He remembered his first dance teacher and how her persistence had helped him when he was a young impressionable boy He began the National Dance Institute to help children like himself have the same chances he had DAmboise defines his style of teaching when he describes the beginning of each of his classes He starts by testing the students just as his teacher had lured him into the classes He also says Never teach something you dont love and believe in This is his explanation of the meaning of education Teaching and learning must be discovered together in an environment capable of housing both It is the teachers duty to provide that environment for the student I enjoyed the conclusion of Jacques dAmboises essay He presents a metaphor which explains how dedicated he his to teaching He compares a person to a trunk in the attic It is up to you what you put in that trunk If you pollute it you are polluting the future of children If you fill it with art literature poetry and love that is what you will end up with-children who are loving and filled with culture I agree with Jacques dAmboises
