Exit12 Dance Company will be teaching a movement workshop at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center Uptown Campus Gym. 

These workshops:

  • Reintroduce a sense of self to the participant
  • Introduce the concept of re-purposing movement
  • Develop a sense of community and well-being through art
  • Develop dance-works that can impact audiences

Testimonials from participants:

"To have someone else in charge of my body reminded me of being a Marine," said Jeff Kay, an Iraq war veteran, referring to an exercise in which the veterans closed their eyes while the dancers directed their movements. "When you're a Marine and you're being sent off to war, someone's in charge of your body, your life," he said. "You've given your body away."

"I'm not somebody who easily leaves my comfort zone," she said. "As Roman says, there's no wrong answer," said Kristen Rouse, US Army Veteran. "And if I do something weird, that's my thing that's weird. And it's mine."
