Hello Everyone! I would first like to say thank you for viewing my blog! My name is Garin Harris, I am currently a high school and part time college student in Arizona. As you can probably tell I am passionate and dedicated to all of the things I do. I had my first dance class at the age of two and have been a dancer ever since! I am also an electric violinist who believe it or not has been playing since I was eighteen months old. Even though it sounds a little crazy, I promise you it's true!
I have made it my personal mission to promote a program I recently created, Dancing Through the Pain. Dancing Through the Pain is a program that teaches coping methods to people who experience all types of pain. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. All of us have experienced pain at some point in our lives, and that is why everyone can benefit from my program!
One of the most common questions I have been asked is why? I have learned from personal experience that pain doesn't only affect the person, but their families as well. My mother has suffered from multiple diseases for all of my life. Due to a faulty flu shot, my mother was diagnosed with Guillian Barre, a disease that paralyzed her from the waist down for a year when I was young. After that she has been given multiple diagnoses. Now she has been diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. One of the side affects is chronic pain, caused by lesions on her spine. Simple stretches and exercises that I include in my program, can make all the difference while dealing with pain. Even if you personally do not experience pain I encourage you to attend a class ,learn the moves, and pass them on!
