Review for Movement Exchange, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA
I learned of Movement Exchange in 2014 during a summer when I was facing the devastating prospect of having to stop my ballet career due to injuries. Move-Ex quite literally fell into my lap at the right time: providing me the ability to continue using my passion for dance for something so much larger than myself. From the beginning, I not only began getting to experience leadership roles within my university chapter (I currently serve as its president), but opportunities to volunteer within the organization's administration. I have loved watching other people at my university, other students and individuals fall in love with Movement Exchange as they witness dance change the lives of so many people around them in addition to themselves. What makes Movement Exchange so special is that it truly prioritizes the experiences between people of all different backgrounds. It has been incredible to participate in the year round sustainable dance programs in Panama as well as in the US and watch first hand the impact Move-Ex has had on so many people. There isn't another organization like Move-Ex in its heart, dedication and network of incredible Dance Diplomats!
