This past Saturday Berkeley Turkish School by Bay Area Turkish Society hosted a Terrace Wine Party where we gathered and celebrated our community.
We provide educational, cultural, social, and recreational programs for exploring, performing, presenting, and sharing our heritage and traditions with the Bay Area community through arts, dance, music, and culinary programs.
Here are the details about the programs we are offering:
Culinary Gathering Events: Sharing food connects us to each other. This is a cooking class followed by a communal meal. These events are held at the professional kitchens of the Bauman College in Berkeley, and are led by cooking enthusiasts, who carefully craft a five course menu. The participants not only learn the menu by cooking it, they also get the opportunity to share this meal together. See previous event photos in our blog HERE

Folk Dance Classes: The language of music and dance is universal and engages us with each other in a meaningful way. We practice different region’s dances year round and perform at various events in the greater Bay Area. Classes are held on Tuesdays, 7:30 pm to 9:15 pm, at Shawl Anderson Dance Studio in Rockridge.

All of these activities are led by 100% volunteer efforts and are funded by the Berkeley Turkish School. If you would like to volunteer and lead a program that you are passionate about, please contact us.
Thank you for your continuous support and contributions to our programs that bring joy and meaning to our community. We hope to see you at our future events.
