Music and dance can be powerful, promoting a sense of wellness, bringing joy and healing, and uniting people. Music and dance therapies are research-based health practices that can improve an individual's physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs. 

Music and dance can aid in physical rehabilitation, increase a person's motivation to be engaged in treatment, provide emotional support and be an outlet for expression.
