The second half of the program, from July 16 - 27, will be spent on tour. Here's a tentative schedule that may help you see what a day in the life with Reach might be like.
July 15 - 26, 2013:
Monday - Friday, 8 am to 2 pm
During the last two weeks, we will meet at Boston University
and then go "on tour" to community centers. We will perform
for large groups of people from different backgrounds and
will teach dance classes after the performances. Teens will
assist the college interns and professionals with the workshops.
After the performances and workshops, we will all return to Boston University for master classes, an information session with the Dean of Students, recreational time in the Fitness Center and other special events.
||Meet at BU and take vans to performance/workshop sites

||Return to BU
||Master Classes, info session, and/or recreation activities
There will be an evening performance on a date TBD, outside
the Harvest Cooperative Supermarket, 581 Mass. Ave. (Bishop Allen Drive side), in Central Square, Cambridge.
"I love kids so when we got to interact with them, such as teaching them a dance or just playing games I felt honored to be a part of the community. I felt so important because they idolized us that each time we went to a community I tried my best to be a good example for the kids. I hope that with the Reach program more kids will want to start dancing as a hobby."
