Want to Change the World? There’s Nothing to It!

Want to Change the World? There’s Nothing to It!

If you want to view paradise, Simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Want to change the world? There’s nothing to it. Student leaders change the world every day. It’s the little actions that determine if students feel welcomed, connected and engaged on their campus. To honor the loss of Gene Wilder, we are commemorating his most notorious role! Being a student leader is like having a golden ticket! You have hit the jackpot. As a student leader, you have put yourself closer to the center of the dance floor. To be closer to the action of your campus, you are thought of first for available resources and opportunities. AND, you can, in turn, influence other students on your dance floor to do the same. #TeamHuman Looking back, what you accomplish can “defy explanation.” Have you ever worked on […]

Relating Dance Floor Theory to Pixar’s Inside Out

Relating Dance Floor Theory to Pixar’s Inside Out

“Don’t be sad, get glad”. This is a common everyday phrase that is often used when an individual is trying to cheer someone else up.   However, in Pixar’s Inside-Out there is an underlying message, since all the main characters of the movie are emotions. At the beginning of the movie Joy, Madness, Disgust, and Fear were all members of the dance floor and actively participating in making their humans’, or Riley’s, emotional life a success.  The fifth emotion, Sadness, however, was on the outskirts of the dance floor and hardly ever participated in making Riley’s emotional life a success.  In fact, when sadness did start to go from meh to hmm… and developed a desire to participate in Riley’s emotional life success (the dance floor for the emotions), she was  persuaded to stay on the outskirts of the dance […]

Bye-Bye-Bye (Bye Bye…) – Matt’s NSync Reflection…

Bye-Bye-Bye (Bye Bye…) – Matt’s NSync Reflection…

I meant to say Internship Reflection! I don’t know where to begin… 6 months have flown by since my first day at Swift Kick. Well, they always say time flies by when your having fun. However, I did not know that work could be so much fun and productive at the same time. As the virtual intern, I was four hours away from the team, while also juggling another part time job as well as 17 credits. Needless to say, I was definitely keeping busy. However, I soon learned from my time at Swift Kick to stop being so busy, and start being productive. During my time here I wrote weekly blog posts, created the Dance Floor Theory newsletter each week, managed the design of Dance Floor Theory posters, created a system for tracking retention metrics, created content for the SA Laughs page, and created a manual for future […]

Dance Floor Theory Moments in the Hunger Games Series

Dance Floor Theory Moments in the Hunger Games Series

(Don’t worry, no spoilers for Hunger Mocking Jay Part II) I want to be like Katniss Everdeen. Yeah, I said it! You may be wondering why a 21-year old campus leader would want to be a fictional character from a book series. Well, it’s not because she won the 74th Annual Hunger Games, or because she has 2 beautiful men vying for her attention. It’s because she became a 5 on the dance floor. In my downtime as a campus leader, I love to get away from a productive week of schoolwork by watching a movie. While watching the Hunger Games series this past week, I realized there are so many Dance Floor Theory moments where the engagement levels of the main characters were increased. Here are two: 1. Katniss Engages Others by Inspiring a Shared Vision Katniss engages others by describing a vivid image of […]

Roller Coaster Theory: Creating Engaging Moments on Campus

Roller Coaster Theory: Creating Engaging Moments on Campus

Ahh… the smell of sweet, delicious food in the air. Wow, everyone’s sporting Harry Potter wardrobe on the streets. Whoa, there’s the castle; it looks so big! That’s right, I’m talking about Harry Potter World in Universal Studios. This past week I’ve been on a leadership conference in Orlando, FL, and I’ve been lucky enough to experience this awesome amusement park with friends in our free time. It sounds strange, but while on the trip, I actually experienced a great campus leadership lesson in the amusement parks outside of the conference itself. While in the parks, I had some friends who were eager to ride the tallest, scariest roller coasters in the park; they were the thrill-seekers sitting in the front of the carts who put their hands in the air and screamed before the ride even started. I also had […]

The #FREEHUGS16 Tips You NEED to Know for 11/3

The #FREEHUGS16 Tips You NEED to Know for 11/3

The big day is almost upon us! That’s right, November 3rd is almost here and all those pledged hugs will be made reality. To get you in the spirit, we wanted to share some really good tips with you on how to make the most of #FreeHugs Day. Think student center or freshman quad. Is everyone stressed over tests? Try outside the library then. Ask yourself: where can I give the most hugs? Halloween is over. Do not force hugs or chase people with your #FreeHugs sign. That ruins the spirit of the day. We want to spread love and good vibes, not terror. Some people don’t want a hug, that’s ok. We have noticed it often works best when two or three people are standing in the same general area with #FreeHugs signs. Two people can’t both be crazy, right? […]
