I’m just sitting here waiting for my shuttle to go to the airport and I’m just thinking about how wonderful this trip was!
I have never had such an opportunity to do anything like this. I have to say over these four days I have learned so much about different cultures and myself.
Dancing here in Jamaica felt…I don’t even have the words. The arts is so valued here and that’s all I ever wanted in the U.S. Hopefully it could be the same. I met so many different people and have connected with two groups in particular. One from North Carolina and another from Chicago.
I have to say that the main part of this trip that touched me the most would have to be out performance. We have never been that in synced with one another. I am a emotional dancer but this performance I almost cried not only because what the dance is about but because I was in Jamaica experiencing the incredible. Words cannot explain the feeling the feeling!
I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and it will forever be in my heart!
With love from Jamaica,
Lauren, AADC dancer
