Dancin Power was a wonderful addition to our event at the hospital. The children loved their program and enjoyed having dancing as an activity. The staff at Dancin Power were great and went above & beyond to help the children.
I have been a board member of Dancin Power for several years it gives me great pride and joy to be involved in such a wonderful organization! This is a cause I believe everybody can get behind that serves some of the most vulnerable individuals in our society. It's amazing to see the transformations that can occur when dance and arts enter the lives of these young people and their families. I'm very excited for Dancin Power and the direction it will be moving in the years to come!
Dancin Power is a superb organization that brings expressive arts and movement to an often overlooked segment of the population: hospitalized children and their families. The volunteers are passionate and caring, but also fun and enthusiastic--a perfect mix. It is clear to me that lives are being changed for the better and I hope that many more will be positively affected by Dancin Power as the organization grows!
I have been involved with Dancin' Power since its inception. The compassion and passion of its founder is contagious. The effects on the children is marvelous. Seeing these kids move and smile in some of the toughest phases of their lives is really beyond words.
Dancin Power is a beautiful program, giving hospitalized children a chance to move and feel like children! I enjoyed working with this program and seeing the faces of children light up when it was time to dance. Providing free dance classes to children in hospitals is truly a gift. I saw firsthand how wonderfully it impacted the child, their family and their nursing staff as they all came together through dance to have fun and connect with each other.
Dancin Power has been an incredible asset to our patients at CHOC Children's! Their generosity has provided hours of fun, movement and excitement. We can't thank them enough for sharing their time and talents to inspire and encourage our kids.
Dancin Power is amazing! Their staff are able to adapt to the varied abilities of our patients, due to their ability to assess what our patients CAN do and play on those strengths. They also work well with our family members and staff-bringing dance and music to all.
It is so great to see patients that are fairly unresponsive, "light up" and interact with the Dancin Power staff. Everyone looks forward to their weekly visit and we wish they could come more often!
Dancin Power has been such a great addition to the range of activities that we offer at George Mark Children's House. Their sensitivity to the needs of our patients and families, ability to adapt to working with children of a variety of ages and abilities and enthusiasm for their work, far exceeded by expectations!!
For the past 10 years this inspiring non-profit has provided dance programs to hospitalized children. As a board member and staff member at one of the hospitals served I see first hand the impact this program had had. I believe every children's hospital should have a similar program.
Dancin Power has been providing dance experiences for pediatric patients at UCSF Benioff Hospital Oakland for many years.
It is a high point for the children each week.
Movement sessions are tailored to the needs and abilities of these young dancers. Whether they have I.V.s, wheelchairs, or other physical challenges, the staff from Dancin Power always creates a meaningful encounter in which every child is able to contribute. For some of our patients, Dancin Power has been one of the most powerful vehicles for encouraging self-expression. It has been quite transformational and we are grateful for their involvement.
Dancin Power brings joy to patients and their families coping with difficult healthcare experiences! Each child is celebrated as an individual and included to their fullest potential.
To fully experience the impact Dancin Power has on hospitalized children is powerful. Watching children feel empowered in the bodies that have caused them pain in a manner that allows them to feel joy in movement again is a meaningful experience. As a Board Member I am proud to support Dancin Power's goal to help more children cope with medical experiences.
Dancin Power has been helping hospitalized children for 10 years now and Vania has been the driving force. She now has well trained facilitators who are able to use music and dance to get children moving and smiling, when just minutes before they were sad or in pain. Its not a miracle, it is the power of music combined with the enthusiasm of the Dancin Power team! Highly recommend support of this non profit.
I've seen first hand, the amazing work Dancin Power does with hospitalized children. Some of that feeling is captured on video, you have to see on Dancin Power website.
They also work well with hospital staff, especially Child Life Specialists, who are some of their greatest supporters.
I think so highly of Dancin Power that I volunteer as a board member.
