Dance For Health and Wellbeing
Dancing has the power to transform the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.
At Heartdancers, we believe that everyone should have access to the wellspring of physical, mental, cognitive and social wellbeing benefits that dance has to offer.
We also understand that different people have different health and wellbeing needs. This is why our Rhythm is Life program is a fully customisable program that can be tailored to a wide range of physical, mental health, cognitive and social wellbeing goals. This includes people of all ages and levels of mobility, people living with physical and/or mental disabilities, people with movement restrictions and people living with mental health illnesses. Dance and movement therapy offers health and wellbeing benefits that everyone can enjoy.
The Health Benefits Of Dance
There is fairly strong scientific evidence that dance-based programmes can be an effective therapeutic intervention for people suffering from Depression, Anxiety, Cancer and Dementia. Research has also shown that dance can increase psycho-motor skills, reduces risk of cardiovascular disease6, improve aerobic power, improve flexibility, improve balance and mobility, and prevent falls. Dance-based interventions have shown to have persistent long-term effects and, due to the fact that dance integrates physical, mental, cognitive and social wellbeing benefits, recent research now positions dance ahead of other physical activity in terms of its impact.
We partner with you to deliver dance therapy programs based on the outcomes most important to you
