Abstract/Artist Statement

Dance is a form of movement that has persisted in lives around the world for over a thousand years. In more recent times, dances such as the Waltz, the Cha-cha, and Ballet, among others, have developed, mainly as a method of amusement. While the use of these dance forms as a form of entertainment has changed little throughout the years, other applications of dance have developed in more modern times. This research project seeks to look at the therapeutic uses of dance to answer the question: does dance help alleviate the symptoms of many common human afflictions?
