Regarding the transition from workshops to stage, Mohr says, "The performance piece is an important part for the veterans. I'm trying to support them in performing with their senses open, so that it's a continuation of a process that's about self-awareness and bodily awareness. I really believe in the dancing body. As dancers, we are trained in the somatic sense, having a self-sense of where we are in space and time — being really present in the moment and in our bodies; being really connected to what's going on internally. I think all of those skills are relevant for healing from trauma."
