"For the fourth year in a row, Movement Exchange has changed my life in ways that I never expected"

− Lili, 4x Dance Diplomat

"With volunteers domestic and abroad, there is a constant presence of service-minded dancers bringing the joy of movement to children every week. It is a privilege to be part of a group with such steadfast participation who also carries the vision of social change through dance. This experience upholds the title because it will move you in so many ways and will immerse everyone involved in an exchange of culture, ideas, and lasting friendships."

− Jennifer, Dance Diplomat
