Dance, Health and Well-being: debating and moving forward methodologies
It is now widely agreed in the arts and health practice and research communities that there is considerable evidence of the positive benefits of dance on developing physical aspects of health and fitness. Building on this, this project seeks to develop understanding of the under-researched aesthetic, artistic and creative contributions that Dance makes to Health and Well-being across the lifecourse. In particular it will focus on what kinds of methodologies are appropriate for investigating these contributions, and how these methodologies can generate findings which extend how we understand the impact of the arts on health and well-being.
This project will begin in autumn 2019.
