Focus on Healing through Movement & Dance
for the Breast Cancer Survivor

The program was created by Sherry Lebed Davis, a professional dancer, along with her two surgeon brothers, with input from physical therapists. It was used for 8 years as part of the breast cancer follow-up program at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia where its success was researched and documented in the "American Physical Therapy Association Journal".

The video shows 5 women (see below description) following the direction of Sherry, the narrator, through a series of gentle stretches and dance exercises with alternating slow and faster sections.

The movements have been designed specifically to focus on regaining and maintaining flexibility in the shoulder joints, and are repeated an average of 3 times per movement, per side. (It is important to balance the body by doing both sides, not just the affected side.) The exercises are fun, unintimidating, and provide a wonderful way to exercise at home and help improve the quality of life for breast cancer survivors.
