INTERNATIONAL DANCE EXCHANGES
Immerse yourself in a new culture through dance and service by joining an international dance exchange in Panama or Brazil.
JOIN AN INTERNATIONAL DANCE EXCHANGE
An international dance exchange is an immersive experience filled with movement, music, exploring, adventure, emotion, and moving to change. During our 8 or 10-day trips to Panama or Brazil, participants will discover a new country’s culture by taking dance classes from local professionals, exploring historical sites, and teaching movement to youth in orphanages and at-risk youth foundations.
”This was not just an international trip, it was truly an exchange. An exchange of wisdom, experiences, love, smiles, and of course, dances. I taught and learned several forms of dance that changed my outlook on dance, on life, and especially on myself.— Mayte, Dance Diplomat from the University of Iowa
