If you ever wondered how dance impacts our lives, you have come to the right place. Last year, CYInterview first introduced you to writer/blogger Taylor Rae. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, she has joined us for some compelling conversations about a variety of topics, including minimalism and the digital age.
Now, Taylor is back with us to discuss dance therapy. Dance is an important part of Taylor’s life and she specifically wanted to talk about dance therapy for this, our latest segment with her.
Additionally, joining us for this panel is none other than neuroscientist Dr. Kristen Willeumier. Kristen has been with us numerous times and we always appreciate her powerful insights. This time, she provides us some in-depth analysis on how our brain reacts to dancing, movement and how we can connect with other people authentically through dance. Last month, Dr. Willeumier was featured in an article in the October issue of Marie Claire [see here].
Rounding out this panel is featured columnist Jay Bildstein, who joins us to talk about our fears when it comes to movement in general and dance in specific. Many people have anxiety about getting up in front of a group people and dancing. We look at why this happens and how our perceptions and emotional intelligence can grow through dance.
Please listen to this almost one hour CYInterview below to explore how dance can have a positive impact on our lives:
