Review for Movement Exchange, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined Movement Exchange in 2011 at a university chapter and began taking on leadership roles within my university's chapter in 2012. I joined because I was intrigued by the idea of incorporating dance and service and was excited to not only teach dance in orphanages and after school programs, but also to learn folkloric dance and other styles from professional Panamanian artists.
Movement Exchange is more than a group that brings dance education to the communities it touches; it is a family of kind-hearted and generous people who endeavor to improve the lives of others, even if that just means briefly brightening another’s day through a simple act of kindness. And throughout my five years as a member of Movement Exchange, I have learned that the joy shared between our dancers—volunteers and participants alike—is a happiness that can transcend boundaries of age, language, and cultural differences. I’ve realized that dance is a powerful tool, and Movement Exchange is using it to bring awareness to issues such as social inequality as well as empowering the individuals with whom we interact.
If you support creative arts programming, social equality, or humanitarian efforts, please consider joining or supporting Movement Exchange. Becoming a dance diplomat changed my life and was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
