Health and wellbeing

The benefits of dance to a person's health and wellbeing have been recognised within community dance for many years. These pages are a growing and developing knowledge bank for you about many aspects of dance and the contribution it makes to health education, health care, teaching new ways to live, managing illness, and community development.

In the light of the increased interest and profile of dance approaches to supporting people with Parkinson's and dementia, we have included specific sections that recognise the growing interest in these fields. It is our intention as work in other clinical areas is developed to profile those areas as well.
