Movement is exercise and can serve to reduce the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and certain types of cancer – conditions that disproportionately impact communities of color. Dancing can help lower stress and improve overall well-being.

The goal of this symposium is to encourage the participants to believe they have the ability to incorporate movement into their daily living. DANCE as opposed to EXERCISE as a form of daily movement will be emphasized for Youth and Adults.
