Soldiers Who Salsa is an amazing non profit organization who’s mission is “To enhance and enrich the lives of active and retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families through a unique program incorporating therapeutic social dancing with a variety of music and professional instruction.”
Baile con Sazon has decided to join this wonderful family of instructors in hopes of spreading the healing power of dance to our local military community. Our studio has very strong ties to our military. All of our owners, instructors and apprentices are either retired, separated or still serving on active duty, and we all agree that partner dancing has therapeutic qualities.
Who We Serve:
“Soldiers Who Salsa serves wounded, ill, and injured military service members in locations where they may already be receiving treatment or therapy… Check the calendar for the classes being offered in your area.
Because salsa dancing is such a social activity, it has also been invaluable to patients with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Common symptoms of PTS/PTSD include an aversion to close contact, avoidance of new activities and new surroundings, and reluctance to meet new people. Our classes provide a safe place for patients to not only learn a new activity, but also work on several of the most common symptoms. It is not uncommon to see patients laughing, smiling, and engaging with new people each week.”
