Dancing Well: The Soldier Project brings the healing power of music, dance, and community to veterans and families coping with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
What Dancing Well Does
In the audio clip above, a VA recovery professional talks about why Dancing Well is so important for veterans.
The mission of Dancing Well is to restore the well-being of veterans and families affected by PTSD and TBI through community dance.
We envision a world where veterans affected by PTSD and TBI can heal and thrive, together with their families, loved ones, and the larger community.
- Every person has value, resilience, and the ability to thrive.
- Every person deserves access to the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of dance.
- Those with different backgrounds and abilities may need modifications to traditional dance forms, but their ability to enjoy and benefit from dance remains the same.
- Excellence in dance facilitation is person centered and grows out of responsible and effective training.
