Review for Movement Exchange, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA
This experience with Movement Exchange was so life changing. I am so filled with love thanks to this experience of a lifetime. Teaching these kids everyday, seeing the joy of their faces, and seeing how they live in the beautiful culture of panama was absolutely amazing. We taught at both the Malambo Orphanage and the Aldea SOS Orphange, along with kids from barrio activo. This opportunity to teach in Panama showed me that dance is such a universal language and can spread such love and hope.
The relationships that I built on this trip will always stick with me, especially with the kids. It was so sweet to see the kids lovingly run up to us when we showed up. They would meet us with hugs and would be ready to have fun and dance with us. I will always remember these amazing kids and how much they loved to dance and the joy that they had despite their hardships. I absolutely loved seeing all of the kids faces light up when they danced.
Also I wanted to thank the dance diplomats that I met. It was so amazing to see so many people come together for the same purpose with such different backgrounds as both dancers and as people. We were so diverse but had the same love and passion for dance, community and teaching. I love you all
