Team Building Activities are designed to help groups develop effective communication & problem-solving skills.A team is a group of people who are jointly responsible for achieving a shared goal. If one member fails then it can hinder the achievement of the collective goal. Even if the members fulfill their individual roles but they don't work synergistically, then they may not fulfill their potential or achieve as much as they could. The most important foundation you can lay, when building better collective performance, is that of common understanding and commitment to the shared goal The One Step Above “Team Building through Dance” stimulates growth, builds confidence, enhances communication and shapes personal relationships in any working environment by using dance as the vehicle. Partnership dance challenges your ego, presses your mind to think beyond the workplace and inspires a team to work to their full potential. At One Step Above we do this through exercises in dance that:
• Stress team enthusiasm
• Building self-esteem
• Develops a heightened sensitivity and concern for others
Ballroom dancing Line Dancing and Chicago Stepping are three of the most time-honored, fun-filled and effective methods for building community and a shared sense of trust among people, making it perfect for instilling team spirit in a corporate environment.
For example, one of the most important components of dance is the lead/follow relationship. In order for a dance to work, partners share responsibility; both the leader and the follower need to use their sight, touch, feeling, momentum, weight shift, kinesthetic awareness, and sometimes verbal and non verbal communication in order to dance/perform well together. Developing this level of trust in each other, and awareness of another person improves relationships on and off the dance floor. More can be accomplished in one 3 minute dance than in hours of other team building training!!!
