Teachable Moments: Special Olympics


As you may remember I have been serving this past year on a project my professor runs in Chinatown for Chinese-American children with ASD.  To close out the year we held a special olympics.  The event was high energy and so much fun to be a part of.  Again for this event I choreographed three dances for the students and parents to take part in, as well as manned the races.  Photos from the event have just been posted on the organizations facebook page. So take a look, and see if you can spot me in the background of many of the photos.  I bet you can’t help but smile when you see the joy on all the student’s faces.

If you want to see even more photos of events we held, there are also photos from our fundraising concert in February on their page as well.  There you can see the costumes I created for them (which you can find directions to here and here) and me looking overly eager as I lead the dances I choreographed for them to preform.
