Questionnaires will be administered at the beginning, mid-point, and end of the study. The objectives o...
Regular physical activity is important for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, but it is often not sustained for many reasons, including lack of interest. New video games that involve physical movement ("exergames") may help in this regard. This study will compare the "exergame" "Dance Dance Revolution" (DDR) with traditional treadmill exercise on blood sugar control among sedentary, overweight or obese adults with type 2 diabetes.
Despite the benefits associated with individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) engaging in pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) programs, the benefits diminish by 6 months. A new innovative approach is needed to increase motivation to exercise and to minimize diminution of effect. Dance is a fun and interactive activity, which has shown benefits in other populations, such as Parkinson's disease and stroke. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of...
The aim of the present study is to assess the effectiveness of belly dance as a treatment for pain and improving the quality of life of patients with fibromyalgia. Eighty female patients with fibromyalgia between 18 to 65 years were randomly allocated to a dance group (n=40) and control group (n=40). Patients in the dance group underwent 16 weeks of belly dance twice a week, while the patients in the control group remained on a waiting list. Patients were evaluated with regard...
The majority of hemiparetic patients have balance disorders, which impact independence in daily living activities and walking. Conventional techniques used in rehabilitation improve balance but have shown no effects on dynamic balance required during walking. Recently dance is proposed to improve dynamic balance in older people and people with Parkinson's disease. Although many studies showed that dance is an effective activity to improve balance in these people, it has never b...
The aim of this study is to examine the effects of a 12-week Zumba dance intervention on fitness, anthropometric and psychometric parameters and eating behavior.
In middle schools participating in a statewide program called "Take Time", we are randomizing youth to a 10-12 week intervention using the dance mat games on the Playstation2 (like Dance Dance Revolution). This program is testing feasibility of using the dance mats as a way to increase activity during the school day. We are using "Groove Masters" as a peer-mentored mechanism to keep track of the activity of youth in the intervention compared to the control group. Our main o...
The purpose of this study is to assess changes in benchmark and state assessment scores in a public elementary school following an intervention of dance integration into the daily routine of the classroom. Furthermore, this study aims to assess if dance may improve student behavior, teacher perception of student behavior, reading level and attendance.
The purpose of this mixed methods study is to evaluate the effects an 8-week group dance intervention can have on body image and posture in breast cancer survivors.
The study used a randomized controlled trial to test the efficacy of two interventions (dance and musical training) for typically developing children. Interventions were run for three weeks in local community locations. Participants were tested before and after the intervention on a battery of cognitive and behavioural measures. They were compared across groups, and to a control group who do not receive the intervention. The purpose of the current study was to assess the influ...
This study explores the value of a particular community based music and dance movement therapy group for older adults with dementia? To answer this question, the investigators intend to address the following two sub-questions: 1. How does participants' use of music and movement change over time? 2. Did a music and dance movement therapy group improve participants' depressive symptoms?
Each female sets her experience of 47 manifestations on a 6 point scale separately for the premenstrual, menstrual and intermenstrual phases of her latest and worst menstrual cycle. Daily Symptoms Report will be filled at the start and at end of the study (before and after performing swimming exercise) Females in group I will be instructed to engage into 12 classes of 60-minute Zumba® fitness over an 8-week period.
The study was conducted to investigate the effect of labor dance and music used during the active phase of labor on labor pain and fear of childbirth. The study was designed as a single-blind randomized controlled intervention trial. The participants included in sample are taken into 3 groups (totally 93 participants). A total of 93 individuals, 31 of whom were in the dance group (D), 30 in the music group (M), and 32 in the control group (C), were included in the survey. Data ...
Children with cerebral palsy (CP) have motor impairments that make it challenging for them to participate in standard physical activity (PA) programs. There is a need to evaluate adapted PA programs for this population. Dance can promote coordination, posture, muscle strength, motor learning, and executive functioning. This pilot study evaluated the feasibility and the effects of a new therapeutic ballet intervention specifically designed for children with CP on physiological a...

Both before and at the completion of the intervention, the investigators will collect a comprehensive neuropsychological battery and MRI scans of brain health and function to better study how physica...
There is a paucity of studies investigating exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) in females and only one in response to dance-type exercise. This study aimed to firstly elucidate the physiological profile of EIMD following a dance-specific protocol, and second to compare the magnitude of damage to that experienced following a sport-specific protocol in physically active females.
The efficacy of exercise programs to prevent falls among older people is well documented in the literature. However, older people's adherence to these exercise programs has been reported to be suboptimal, varying between 21% and 74%. In addition, about 45% of people aged over 60 years do not meet the minimum recommended level of physical activity. In this context, dance is a promising alternative to traditional exercise programs, as it can positively influence important risk fa...
