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

Rating: 5 stars  

I've traveled internationally with Movement Exchange twice, and have held board positions at the UC Irvine chapter for two years as well! Movement Exchange is NOT voluntourism. Since dance is our means of social justice, we focus of emotional health and artistic education by exposing our dance diplomats to a new culture and giving them a platform to share their knowledge. During both trips, participants have been embraced by the communities and return as changed people. The directors of the trip keep the experience as authentic as possible and accommodate the local community--it's truly a one-of-a-kind experience. We are moving to change!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Movement Exchange is a beautiful collision of artistry, service, and dance. What it provides is experience and true human-to-human experience, which cannot be replaced or replicated. Spending time in Panamá pushes dance diplomats outside of their known worlds, and allows them to grow exponentially, simply be being. Self-growth, trust, and love are learned in a context that teaches social justice, humility, peace, and the importance of the arts in the individual's life. Movement Exchange cultivates awareness and consciousness for the Other, for those who have less, but ultimately decide to give more. With dance, human bodies can be cherished and connections are shared between people who would otherwise be strangers. Movement Exchange unites, creates, and continuously supports those who decide to #movetochange.
