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!”

Mission Statement
“To enhance and enrich the lives of active and retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families though a unique program incorporating therapeutic social dancing with a variety of music and professional instruction.”
