Do you know what is the "Dancin Power Kit" ? Around 90% of the patients we serve, have never taken a dance class before, and are introduced to dance for the first time by our program. That experience is more than just taking a dance lesson, is more than learning techniques and about cultures. That moment is the time they allow themselves to transported to a new experience, and invited to feel free to express themselves and enjoy every second of laughter. Dancin Power helps them feel happier and build positive memories of their hospital journey.
If you are taking your very first class with us, please let our Dancin Power teachers know, so that you can receive your very own “Dancin Power Kit” with: A special Dancin Power t-shirt that says “Dancing Makes me Feel….” and contains one of the words: “Happy”, “Free”, “Powerful and "Alive”. A colorful and vibrant Dancin Power Stickers with words that express how they feel after dancing with us! And a Dancin Power Certificate with a photo of the patient dancing.
