2012 Chan Fellows at Dance Daze, Inc. Offices

 

 

On Thursday, October 4, 2012, we were visited by the 2012 UC Berkeley W. T. Chan Fellows. The Chan Fellows are a group of 6 undergraduate and graduate students from China, who spend 5 months in the United States, immersed in a service-learning experience. The Fellows live with local families, attend a university seminar 1 day per week, and work as interns 4 days per week at a nonprofit organization that serves disadvantaged communities. Our Dance Daze Chan Fellow is interning for our nonprofit organization, Dance Daze in Schools. In addition to focusing on fundraising and development with Dance Daze in Schools, she is also leading a dance program and math tutoring program at Yu Ming Charter School, a Mandarin-immersion charter school in Oakland, California. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with UC Berkeley’s W. T. Chan Fellows this year, and we are excited for the work our Fellow is doing this fall semester!

 

Dance Daze Halloween 2011

We had so much fun in our classes yesterday! In addition to giving away FREE pumpkins to each student who attended class, we also played lots of fun games in our Creative Movement class, including “Pass the Pumpkin” and “Magic Rope”! It was our first time trying those games, and they were a hit!

To see more photos from yesterday’s classes, please visit the Dance Daze Facebook Page or find our photos on our new Flickr page !
