“The opportunity to express oneself through the medium of dance holds benefit for both emotional and physical well-being. Involvement in dance facilitates a growth of confidence, is a forum for the expression of positive emotion and safe reminiscence, and helps participants increase physical activity levels and improve their physical health-related knowledge.”
The Dance Health AllianceTM certificate program aims to support dancers or dance teachers or healthcare professionals, with dance experience to extend their skills to facilitate professionally run, creative, personalised dance classes for people with Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid or Osteo Arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, and other movement restrictions or cognitive conditions. Certified Teachers will be promoted through our networks, be supported with online resources and additional training, and be trained in both DanceWell™ and DanceWise™ class structures.
