Description

This program takes place in a friendly, safe environment for any type of individual. This program will focus mainly on the effects of dance therapy on the individuals with mental and or physical needs. The population is a special population and unfortunately, society pushes them to the side as if they don’t matter. This program will specifically focus on the Mankato community. All individuals thrive off of different learning techniques. Therefore, if these individuals are only offered counseling and the most common form of therapy, physical therapy, then some of the individuals will not thrive the way they could be. This research will help identify whether or not some of these individuals in this specific population thrive off this therapy type.
