Fallon V'Dezi Bolly-Hiphop Dance
It's time to bring the dancer in you to explore various themes and styles! Don't worry that shelter in-place has restricted outdoor movement. You too can dance from the comfort of your home through online dance workshops. Dance is a full body workout that helps improve your physical fitness, emotional uplift and also mental exercise (oh yea! memorizing the steps and counts have been proven through studies to prevent Alzhemers in seniors too!) Now you can join the Fallon V'Dezi Bolly-Hiphop Dance workshops and experience a fun filled environment of learning various styles of dance (Bollywood? Hiphop? Indian Folk? Lyrical Hiphop? we got ya covered!) across multiple languages. Whether you are just beginning to explore your dance skills or an experienced dancer, we are sure everyone will enjoy these sessions alike and most importantly meet new students, make new friends, bond and stay connected through trying times!
This program will be run by Ayushman Deb, an eighth grader at Fallon. For more information, click HERE for the flyer. Ayushman’s classes will be monitored by his mother, Shalini Deb.

The year 2020-21 is an unusual year for all of us. Bay Area Science Olympiad Committee decided to follow 2 formats:
Mini SO Tournament is where each student competes at their own home with tests and instructions provided by the Tournament organizers virtually. Teams will participate as a School team.
My SO is something that anyone can participate in as long as the parents or legal guardians agree to it. The material provided is free each month, and there is a small cost (~$10) for the STEM showdown which allows participants to compete with students all over the country. Students participating in a mini tournament as part of a team can concurrently participate in My SO.
We are looking to establish teams for Mini SO for 2020-21. Depending upon the response, a written test and or interview may be conducted. The parents will also need to support this program throughout the year.
