While dancers are moving to specific rhythms, they are actually coordinating their body and mind, advises Judy Gantz, founder and director of the Center for Movement Education and Research, in Los Angeles.
Gantz, who specializes in dance kinesiology and Laban Movement Analysis, a comprehensive system for understanding movement, notes that dances requiring complex coordination also enhance mental acuity.

"Cultivating Body Knowledge" by Judy Gantz
In "Cultivating Body Knowledge," Judy Gantz describes the four stage pedagogical scheme she has created to help students deepen their understanding of movement. Her approach combines somatic learning about movement "from the inside" with objective and reflective approaches informed by Laban Movement Analysis. Her educational goal is to foster a corporeal way of knowing self and other, one that yields greater empathy and tolerance.
