"... a collection of articles designed to expand the information network, identify current programs, and provide research in the field of dance/movement and gerontology. Different approaches, techniques, and philosophies are documented by individuals who are active in the field. The nation's aging population is facing their senior years with an increased awareness of the need for physical and mental activity maintenance. This document is meant to serve as a resource of the evidence that continues to mount on the positive relationship between the physical activity of dance and healthy mental attitudes. We hope that it will generate future discussion and ideas in the field." -- from book's introduction
