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

Rating: 5 stars  

Movement Exchange has no-doubt been the most gratifying program I have ever been a part of. The people I met were so caring, helpful, and down-to-earth. The staff were so kind and eager to help with any questions or problems I had about the trip before I got to Panama, and once I got to Panama I was welcomed with open arms. The work that we did was so impactful, so vital and important for not only the kids in the orphanages and schools that we worked in, but the community as a whole. During my experience with Movement Exchanges weeklong dance exchange program in Panama, I got to see so much growth, not only in myself, but the kids we were working with. Even with some-what of a language barrier, I was still able to teach the kids by communicating through dance. Seeing dance cross over such barriers and boundaries is an amazing thing to watch. The dance programs they have also help keep kids off the streets and give a safe environment for the kids to safly exspress themselves.
