The symposium’s goal is to launch a discussion of dance and well-being from a multidisciplinary perspective, focusing on the following three themes:
Theory: Influences, inspirations and interdisciplinarity
Methods: Challenges, strategies and results
Practice: Fields and applications
In spring of 2016, we invited dancers and dance therapists working in various settings, health professionals from diverse fields and students and researchers in dance, health and related disciplines to submit proposals for oral presentations, posters and experiential workshops to help map this new interdisciplinary field of inquiry and practice.
