"I'm not one that likes to be around a lot of people but the dancing took my mind away from that.  I can't thank you enough for bringing a smile back to my heart."

- Wounded Warrior Project Alumni and ComMotion student

Veterans and their family members & friends are invited to participate in inclusive dance and fitness programs. These classes use a variety of activities such as Salsa, Bachata, and other Latin dances, line dances, and fitness exercises including Pilates and martial arts  as a fun way to both get moving and connect with other veterans.  Enjoy some great music, relax, and have fun!

Classes are open to individuals, family members, and friends. No partner? No problem! All activities are fun to learn on your own.  You can also join in the fun either standing or sitting down.

No prior dance or exercise experience is needed and activities are suitable for all ages and abilities.

In a recent survey of participants in online classes, 100% responded that the classes were a good form of exercise and a way to relieve stress, and that they would recommend the classes to others.  They also reported that ComMotion's classes were very helpful in improving their quality of life, rating them more helpful than other activities such as support groups and individual/group exercise programs.
