Dance and Brain Function


Monday, October 10th was Mental Health Day, so it seems only fitting to speak on a topic about dance, mental health and brain function.

Researchers are finding that as they study humans not just in modern times, but even dating back millions of years ago, our brains and bodies may have evolved to need exercise to function at our greatest capacity on many levels. This discovery is connected to days when humans were hunters and gatherers.
