What they say about FAF

“Thank you! I would love the opportunity to repay you for the invaluable gift you gave me!” “Thank you for the wonderful hospitality; you made it even more enjoyable. I hope our paths cross again.” “I felt like I was traveling with family!”

- Newman Theatre Tour Participants – Jewish Festival performances; August 1999

“It was a marvelous tour, smooth, brilliant with daily wonders … we were really happy with it … in fact ALL of the accommodations were incredible; quite beyond the beyonds, as the Irish say.”

- Devon McNamara, West Virginia Wesleyan College, June 2000

“Our experience in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Shanghai exceeded all expectations, especially the incredibly hospitality shown to us in Sanchung. What a special occasion!”

- William Carson, Coe College, August 2008

“The Movement Laboratory Youth Ensembles’ “Goodwill thru Dance Program” has traveled with FAF for over 20 years. Ten years ago we traveled to Italy and developed artistic relationships and personalized cultural exchanges. After years of communication we were able to renew these connections with young artists / students and professional colleagues. We are exploring an exchange for a company to come to the USA as our guest in 2008. Partners in Padua, Rome and Florence hosted our dancers with great enthusiasm and respect. Thanks FAF for helping Judy Williams Henry and her Movement Laboratory Youth Ensemble represent the USA as “Children of Hope; Children of Peace”. We will continue to create, illuminate and teach peace.”

- Judy Williams Henry, Founding Artistic Director, Movement Laboratory, July 2007
