WATCH: Country Dancing Is Helping These War Veterans Cope With PTSD

War Veterans can have a tough time dealing with adjusting to life after war. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects over 1.5 million veterans! Dancing Well: The Soldier Project is committed to bringing the healing power of music, dance and community to veterans and families coping with PTSD and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Their mission is to restore the well-being of veterans and families affected by PTSD or TBI through community dance. Dancing Well was born out of Ex. Directors, Deborah Denenfeld's, trust in the healing power of dance. In a pilot program with soldiers at Fort Knox, she worked closely with staff psychiatrist Edwin O. Walker to expand and implement a dance series specifically attuned to the needs of soldiers with PTSD and/or brain injury and the results were incredible, changing the lives of the vets who participated.
