The leaders of both dance schools, Samanta Westera-Juppa from Aruba and Marijke Dierick from Belgium, joined forces in this project for the benefit of their students to motivate young people to practice their passion for dance. In the first part of the project, the students of Scol di Movimiento from Aruba traveled to Belgium. In the second one, the students of You Can Dance from Belgium traveled to Aruba, where they exchanged and learned cultural dances from both countries, such as their stories, innovation, sustainability, language, and personal growth. These projects consisted of dance workshops and activities culminating in a performance at the end of each project.
