My peer shares about Dacin Power and inspires me to get involved. The expressive arts are so powerful, and Dacin power is transforming the lives of these children.
I was a bit dubious about Dancin Power until I had the opportunity to join them at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital and saw them in action -- they are amazing! Not only did they bring joy to the patients that they worked with, their sense of inclusion of the whole family was fantastic. The healing power of music, of movement and of a break from the medical environment cannot be measured -- but it it immense!
Dancin Power brings adaptive activity into medical facilities as part of the healing process. The energy and enthusiasm of their volunteer instructors engages patients and helps them to smile and forget the struggles of medical treatments. Everytime I see photos and videos of the children participating in dance, I smile too. Please support the great work Dancin Power does for patients and the community they serve.
Dancing power is a such beautiful, inspiring, heart touching and important project for the sick kids inside hospitals!

Dancin Power touches the lives of sick & injured children every day. Their volunteers inspire hospitalized children to express themselves through dance & movement, and in doing so bring so much positive energy and much-needed joy to the children and families that they serve. Their tireless work is both instructional and therapeutic. They teach the children to be in touch with their bodies and comfortable in their own skin while at the same time offering them an irreplaceable escape from their strenuous and painful circumstances.
Dancin Power is a truly inspirational organization that provides an invaluable service to the beloved children that it serves.
This is the most amazing group of volunteers I have ever seen! They do not think twice about going into a difficult situation to bring joy to the children they serve. For 1 hr. out of a 24 hr. day, a child is able to forget the pain and sickness they are feeling and just dance and have fun. You can just feel the excitement in the room! It is nice to know there are still people in this world that care enough to give of their time and spread kindness to other people. Dancin Power YOU rock!!! Keep up the fantastic work.
