Jamie LOVES Panama!

By April 20, 2012 December 30th, 2017 International Dance Exchanges

Buenas de Panama!!!!

Alright….so, I knew this movement exchange would be a valuable experience, but I was not expecting it to have such a PROFOUND impact on me so suddenly.  I don’t like to use cliche phrases like “it’s been life-changing,” or “this experience cannot be described in words”….HOWEVER….I am at a loss for words and it HAS been a perspective opener for me.  I see myself doing this type of work for the rest of my life.  Making these types of cultural connections through outreach/ service-oriented programs is so fulfilling.  Que Rico! And not just for us, but for the kids too.

It’s inspiring to see so many of them cultivating their talents.  Dance is a viable option for their life’s work and they are persuing that passion—many plan to come abroad and continue studying dance at universities.

Seeing dance and movement enliven the people is truly magical.  Every day has been a complete treat and the time is passing too quickly.  I’m doing whatever it takes to come back here next year.
