Why did you join Movement Exchange?

I was part of the original team that started the Move-Ex chapter at GMU. I was inspired by our former President, Amanda Malone, and the way she spoke of her experience in Panama and the positive change that dance could bring forth in the world. I was moved to see how I could use my passion to spread joy.

What is your favorite thing about Movement Exchange?

My favorite thing about Move-Ex is it's network of positivity. I am so proud to be a part of such an expansive community that is continually working together although we are not all in the same place. I love knowing that our mission is being carried out all over our nation and internationally on the daily basis.

What makes your Move-Ex chapter unique?

Our Move-Ex chapter is special because we are committed to growing and becoming a great non-profit in our area!

Where do you teach weekly and/or monthly dance classes in your community? Who are your community partners?

We teach regular classes at Facets Community Center and at The Boys and Girls Club of Fairfax.
