A U.S. Marine Deals with his PTSD through Ballet
I faced my PTSD when I started to write about it. Here’s a Marine that did the same thing but with Ballet.
After serving at Fallujah, choreographer Roman Baca channeled his military experience into provocative dance performances.
This post is in addition to a post I reblogged from “Off the Base” — A Marine’s Voice Being Heard from the Dance Stage
“Roman Baca is a Marine Iraq War Veteran and the Artistic Director of Exit 12 Dance Company in NYC. After a career in dance, Mr. Baca served as a US Marine and was deployed to Fallujah, Iraq from ‘05-’06.” Source: Exit 12 Dance Company
His latest novel is Running with the Enemy. Blamed for a crime he did not commit while serving in Vietnam, his country considers him a traitor. Ethan Card is a loyal U.S. Marine desperate to prove his innocence or he will never go home again.
And the woman he loves and wants to save was trained to hate and kill Americans.
