When the therapists realized Bruce loved dancing, they decided to add that into his therapy. While seated, he dabs and dances “The Whip” and “The Nae Nae.” Simply holding himself up and crossing his arms over his eyes to dab builds up the muscles in his stomach and helps him sit upright without falling.
While seated dancing energized Bruce, he experienced a huge surprise when the therapists put him in a harness to get his groove on.
“It was really amazing. He even said, ‘I can dance,’” said mom Lyhoy, 33. “It was really great to be able to see Project Walk incorporate dance into his training.” [source]
