How dance improves physical and mental health

24 / 09 / 2019

David Bowie said: Let’s dance! And he’s right – dance is recognised as one of the most effective ways of getting fit, improving mobility, enhancing social connections, developing better cognitive skills and having fun while doing so. The shift away from traditional, hospital-centred models of care, as called for in A Healthier Wales, means that the time is right to realise the benefits that innovative dance initiatives can have on people’s physical and emotional wellbeing. This briefing provides an overview of how arts and health practitioners across Wales are supporting people of all ages and abilities to realise the benefits of dance.
