A Groundbreaking Dance Program Helps War Veterans with PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder affects approximately 3 million veterans—a heartbreaking statistic. Dancing Well: The Soldier Project [LINK TO dancingwell.org] is devoted to helping these vets enjoy life again by introducing them to community dance. Executive Director Deborah Denenfeld worked with a psychologist to create dances attuned to their needs, and the effect is amazing. Dancing, communicating, and just letting go and having fun has been a much-needed balm for their spirits. Veterans comment that they “can relax” and have “found their smile” again.
