Dr. James Young:
"Dance has a different effect on patients and in these individuals, it's extraordinary because it's sort of a backdoor into therapy. It allows them to have a certain fluidity in their movements. They're improving in balance, they're improving in their activities of daily living, they're improving socially and also in their attitude toward their life."
James Young, MD, Rehabilitation Physician, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL
