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

Rating: 5 stars  

Being a part of Movement Exchange has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had with a nonprofit. As a member and now president of a university chapter, I have already learned so much from its extensive network: new dance styles, teaching techniques, touching stories, and strategies on how to lead a nonprofit. It is a very transparent organization, with monthly public video updates and open communication from the national body to its chapter members through dedicated chapter mentors. There is an inclusive environment where every volunteer is valued, included, mentored and supported, and I can say that I now know a group of passionate dance diplomats from around the world that I can reach out to and look up to. Even the alumni stay involved!

As for the service that this organization provides, words cannot describe the impact that I have personally seen dance make on communities in Panama and San Diego. With a strong belief in sustainability, cross-cultural understanding, civic engagement, social equality and inclusion, and creative expression, I have seen how Movement Exchange has practiced what it preaches by clocking in thousands of hours of genuine service through accessible dance education. The collateral impacts are abstract but enormous - increased confidence for students and dance diplomats, knocked down cultural and language barriers, and a strong sense of youth and community empowerment. And to think that this organization is still so young! I can't wait to see the continued growth and impact to come. #MoveToChange
