We know that dance is a good physical activity and just plain fun, but it turns out, it’s got surprising benefits that go well beyond the basics. In addition to aerobic fitness, dancing can positively impact all of our senses and lead to better cognitive health, while also reducing stress and depression and connecting us to others.

In this Bright Side Episode, Dr. Roger and Danielle are joined by Masterpiece Content Specialist and Wellness Expert Tracy Jose to discuss the benefits of dance as well as the cultural richness found in dances such as African dance, dances from the Philippines and the Haka from New Zealand.
