Testa is working on a documentary for "Move the World: Dance Activism"; serves as a mentor for nonprofit organizations such as "Creative Visions," dedicated to inspire and empower creative activism worldwide; and nonprofit "Creative Heels," promoting empowerment, self-discovery and self-worth through creativity and self-expression to youth who have experienced trauma.
