Peristalsis Dance Group


Our Mission:

  • To give pediatric patients the creative tools and outlet to express themselves.
  • To alleviate stress associated with an inpatient hospital stay through “therapeutic movement”.

Our Activities:

We lead weekly dance and therapeutic movement classes for these patients, which in turn reduces the stress associated with hospital stays. Each week, we come up with a theme, such as “Broadway,” or “space” for the volunteers and kids to dress up as, and then we create a music playlist and then lead various physical activities such as dancing or games.

Student Leaders:

  • Breanna Brownson – Co-Coordinator/Co-President
