Veteran’s Day: Dancers and the Military

November 11, 2012

Each year on Veteran’s Day we honor and recognize the enduring spirit of those who have served in the armed forces.  It just so happens that some of those veterans also happen to be dancers.  Today, we’d like to recognize Roman Baca, a United States Marines veteran from the Iraq War, and the Artistic Director of Exit 12 Dance Company in New York City.  Mr. Baca served in Fallujah, Iraq from 2005 to 2006.
