“Advances in science, knowledge and understanding are dramatically improving treatment and management but we now also know the importance of exercise to health and wellbeing. We understand pain pathways can be reversed and relieved with the addition of exercise and we understand that fun can make the world of difference to attitude and wellbeing. Exercise is the best non-drug treatment for pain. Dance is life enhancing and celebratory. We’ve been asking women we see whether dance would be an exercise they would like to do. We have noticed their eyes light up, smiles appear and we’ve witnessed excitement about the opportunity. “ Deborah Bush, 2013
DANCE FOR ME has been endorsed by:
Endometriosis New Zealand launched DANCE FOR ME for women who experience pain and wish to make positive changes to their lives through dance as an exercise of choice.
DANCE FOR ME is an initiative (rather than a specific programme) which dance teachers can integrate into any of their classes covering any dance genre.
This initiative is currently on hold until further funding becomes available.
