Dance and physical storytelling provide the perfect form of integrated physical and cognitive activity, challenging the body and the brain simultaneously. Music and rhythm play a huge part in stimulating neurotransmitters in the brain, the chemicals which send messages from one brain cell to the next. The movement increases oxygen and blood flow to the brain. As well, it enhances communication between right and left brain hemispheres.
