Apply today for JUNTOSAbroad!

A two-week intercultural exchange program for college students in professional dance programs structured to enhance artistic and personal development through dance service work.

Applications are now closed! Check back in September 2020 to apply for 2021 trips.


High-level dance students are invited to participate in this program. A video link is required to be considered for this opportunity.

College-aged dance volunteers travel to Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico or Nicaragua to teach modern dance workshops, take world dance classes conducted by our international community alliances, and participate in public performances that include student choreography. Dance volunteers will conduct dance workshops and performances in orphanages, migrant safe homes, centers for HIV+ children, hospitals, grade schools, retirement homes, and dance groups with lack of funding. Through these experiences, dance volunteers are encouraged to dig deeper into their relationship with dance.
