DIAVOLO’s The Veterans Project
The MISSION of The Veterans Project is to utilize DIAVOLO's unique style of movement as a tool to help restore veterans' physical, mental, and emotional strengths through workshops and public performances in communities all around the country.
The chasm between veterans and civilians is so vast, socially, the veterans are at a disadvantage in forming vital connections. Our program can help bridge the widening gap between these two integral groups in your community!
