Celebrating National Creative Arts Therapy Week

One way that I have been celebrating National Creative Arts Therapy Week is by inviting my co-workers to dance during the lunch hour.  We have been meeting daily and practicing the dance recently performed by Michelle Obama and Ellen Degeneres on the Ellen show in support of Michelle’s MOVE and Gimme 5 initiatives.  It is a simple routine, and more important it is fun!  Our staff here at the VA has been connecting in ways that we never have before.  Dance has such an amazing way of bringing people together.

Here is the link:

Maybe you will find yourself dancing with your co-workers too.  You’d be surprised who wants to dance if you just ask!

Happy Creative Arts Therapy Week!
