Croatian Cultural Exchange
Changing Destinations Board Member and Project Manager, Annika Adams traveled to Europe in 2017.
I traveled to Croatia alone and stayed at the Zaprešić Church of Christ Christian Center. During my time in Croatia I made lots of new friends through dance. I served as guest choreographer for the EuroCup’s Cedevitas Dance Team and met with local Brazilian samba instructor Anny Alves for a samba class. I also had the opportunity to partake in community outreach through teaching a dance workshop to students of Plesni Studio Jeté Zaprešić and working with the children of the Zaprešić Kindergarten Bell. When I wasn’t dancing and practicing my Croatian, I was walking the square of Zagreb exploring the most fantastic Christmas market on earth!
