  • Kiley Griffith (double major, International Studies and Dance) spent a summer enacting her commitment with the Clinton Global Initiative University to create an after school for children living in the impoverished township of Nyanga. “I created activities that promoted critical thinking skills, team building, and English proficiency. As you can see in the pictures, I also created a danced-based program for children (ages 2-5) in “creche” or preschools in two communities within the township, Khayelitsha.”  Upon her return to MMC, she undertook an independent study to analyze how to combine dance and development.
