Researchers from the Dance Science Department have compiled a comprehensive review of previous research undertaken in the dance and health fields, relating to the impact of various kinds of dance, on elderly populations. Commissioned by the Thames Gateway Dance Partnerships, this study aimed to provide a broad overview of the field, indicating where research has been carried out already, and also highlighting areas for further research.

This review proves a valuable tool in surveying the body of existing research, and advocating for much needed further research within the areas of dance and health for older populations.
