No matter your age, gender or race, dance can bring an amazing array of physical, cognitive and psychological benefits, such as slowing the progress of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. However, like a proper dancefloor at any party, the good stuff only happens when people are up and moving!

This presentation provides an insight into the ways dance can contribute to health and examines the challenges of getting ‘non-dancers’ to bust a move.

Carlene Newall de Jesus is a Doctoral candidate from the University of Auckland and a performing arts educator, researcher and performer. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Bachelor of Performing Arts in Dance, and a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters in Science (Health Psychology). Her current doctoral research is supported by the Freemasons Foundation and the Centre for Brain Research and examines the use of dance for wellbeing in older adults with cognitive impairment.

Her interests are in the intersections of arts and science and the use of dance in wellness and health for diverse groups of people. Outside of her research, Carlene is a circus performer, choreographer and artistic director.
