The Movement Exchange volunteers at Butler University regularly volunteer with the Julian Center and the US Dream Academy.  The Julian Center is a shelter for families affected by domestic and sexual violence, and we volunteer to teach dance class to the kids living there once a week.  The US Dream Academy is an after-school program for children who have an incarcerated parent, and we come in once a week to teach dance.  Learn more about the Julian Center here: https://www.juliancenter.org/ and the US Dream Academy here: https://usdreamacademy.org/

Movement Exchange has opened my eyes to the many reasons why we dance. Through Butler's chapter of Movement Exchange, I have gotten to see so many young students' confidence grow and see their friendships strengthen through dance. Dance is about so much more than improving a technique, it's about love, acceptance, confidence, and joy.
