Jennifer Ables is the Executive Director of Soldiers Who Salsa (SWS), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. She also teaches salsa dancing to military service members and veterans recovering from the injuries they received in Iraq and Afghanistan.
According to Jennifer, “Anything I can do to support our military is an honor. This program currently offers a weekly salsa class to amputees, traumatic brain injury and PTSD patients who are recovering at military hospitals and other facilities around the United States. As a professionally trained ballroom dance instructor, teaching this class is so rewarding – watching patients regain balance, develop new memory patterns, and just have fun dancing salsa!”
