Movement Exchange at IU
We are dance diplomats that believe in the power of dance to impact and benefit lives in various ways! We love to share our love for dance with communities, especially children, that have fewer opportunities for creative expression, dance education, or physical creative outlet. We believe in and support sustainable dance education, dance accessibility to all people, civic engagement, and cross-cultural understanding through dance.
We regularly volunteer teaching dance classes at Girls Inc, Boys and Girls Club Bloomington, Boys and Girls Club Ellettsville, and the Middle Way House. Most often we teach dance and lead creative movement activities, but upon request/invitation we have done performances and led flashmobs for events held by other organizations!
