WHAT TRAVELERS SAY
-- Leah W.
Every aspect of the trip was beautifully planned and executed. Our fellow students were sincere and interesting. I would heartily recommend this experience for anyone wanting to learn more about the creative use of Dance and Art in Education and Mental Health.
-- Leah W.
To interact with the dancers as a student and to experience how joyous I felt when I had good interactions with them or when they would compliment my dancing, I felt like a little kid receiving a compliment, it made me light up. That experience is completely relevant to my teaching in helping me to remember how to approach my students, to remember to be kind, be in the moment, and to remember to convey a positive attitude because it was so impacting to me.

Anara and her team worked so hard and yet they made it all look so easy and seamless. They… did everything within their power to make our trip the awesome journey that it was. The guides were so knowledgeable that every bus ride became a deep educational experience… Every group we met exhibited joy in exchanging ideas with us, and show casing the rich culture they possess.
