Dr. James Young:
"Dance therapy 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."
