Touching Hundreds of Lives! University of Utah and Movement Exchange
Their daily schedule goes as such: waking up at 5:00am, travel into the city to take a master class by local teacher Jose Leonardo, drive to the University of Panama to teach a master class, back into the city to teach classes at different orphanages, in the afternoon students drive to the National School of Dance to teach one more master class and end up back at the Malambo Orphanage for a few more creative movement classes before having dinner and enjoying each other with wrap up discussions on how the day went, bed usually around midnight.
After a quick count, the group has determined that in two days, more than two hundred students, teachers and observes have been touched by their classes in and out of the city of Panama. Early mornings and late nights keep the group fully responsive, and tirelessly dedicated to their mission to bring dance to as many people as possible. The group would like to acknowledge the incredible help of Anna and Carina from Movement Exchange, Joana for her incredible hospitality and delicious meals and the Sisters at the Malambo Orphanage for allowing the group to stay with them during this week.
