Abstract

This first part intends to set the scene in its rightful home: the body. As such, it treats the body as the primary ‘location’ of dance, where wellbeing, measured or felt, can be found. The chapters refer to neuroscientific, physiological, psychological, philosophical, and spiritual approaches to movement and dance, and reflect a continuum from objective to subjective experiences and from scientific reasoning to transpersonal discourses. In all cases, contributions are brought together to reflect multiple and comprehensive ways in which dance can contribute to wellbeing.
