Hello Dance Adventure NYC readers!
It’s been some time since my last post. I apologize for not finishing the Movement Exchange Series. Instead of writing Part 6, I’m going to end with brief final thoughts about my experience with Movement Exchange.
I really identify with Move Ex’ mission and values. I really enjoyed traveling, meeting new people, working with the kids, taking local dance classes, dancing with other college students and learning about the Panama Canal (plus jumping off a waterfall in a nearby watershed!).
I wish the exchange had been longer, and that we had more time to dance and talk with the kids and college students we met. I don’t want to give the idea that the entire trip was ultimate bliss. I did have my ups and downs, which is to be expected in a new situation around new people. But, overall I had a wonderful experience, I wouldn’t mind reliving those 8 days! I definitely want to continue to volunteer with Move-Ex!
If you are a college student in a dance program or you are passionate about dance and service, definitely contact Move-Ex to learn how to create a chapter 🙂
Blair Brown, a student from the University of California, Irvine has created a beautiful full length documentary about Movement Exchange.
Check it out!
