In front of a sea of flashing cameras, Schools Chancellor-designate Dennis Walcott danced with first graders to C & C Music Factory's "Everybody Dance Now."
Walcott was proving he could move (as well as run the DOE) in a visit to on Pacific Street Monday afternoon.
He was appointed last week after controversial Chancellor Cathie Black resigned amid low approval ratings and public uproar.
After touring a few classrooms and talking with students about trees (Walcott grew up with an apple tree in his yard) and books (his favorite children's book is "Where The Wild Things Are"), Walcott stopped in a first grade dance class before playing sports with students in the school yard.
"It's important to get out to the schools, meet the principals, teachers and students," said Walcott.
Zipporiah Mills, Principal at P.S. 261, said she was alerted at 7 p.m. on Sunday evening about the pending visit.
