This is an effective option and is a form of psycho therapy as it reduces stress, anxiety and fear and improves your self esteem greatly.
Also, it helps in improving your body image, communication skills, and other alternatives.
Dance movement therapy reduces the feelings of solitude, chronic pain, depression and body tension. Any movement of the dance therapy improves functioning of your body’s respiratory and circulatory systems.

Precautions while considering dance therapy:
If you have any diseases like cancer, arthritis, and heart attack, you should consult your doctor before going for a dance therapy class, because the therapy involves manipulations or movements of the joints and muscles.
