Psychological benefits abound for dancers! Beyond the influence of music, the movements effectively defuse stress, and promote grounding and centering, just like the effect of "walking off steam" when upset. New students often feel enabled confidence in moving forward, as body-control nourishes a sense of security. Because dance is not classified as therapy, it has the healing power of Fun, as an individual finds that he or she need not be a victim or the passive recipient of a practitioner. In fact, the statement of one's presence in a class or dance circle is a commitment of responsibility for taking and making action.
