The Importance of dance to Well-being

Dance Therapy

The Centre for Creative Health has partnered with the University of South Australia, University of Auckland, Queensland University of technology, SAHMRI, Ausdance National, Royal Academy of dance-London and the Australian dance Theatre to explore how creative dance builds community participants’ mental well-being. Spanning 12 months, this specific research project focuses on dance leaders and their community participants, providing a unique opportunity to gain insight into how creative learning through dance might build social and emotional wellbeing and resilience and prevent the development of chronic conditions such as anxiety, stress and depression across generations. Stay tuned for the results at the end of the year!
