BrainDance 1. Introduction
In these videos, Anne Green Gilbert and her students (toddlers through seniors) demonstrate variations of the BrainDance. These exercises move through fundamental movement patterns that wire the central nervous system in the first year of life. The BrainDance offers benefits such as improved mood, reduced stress and increased alertness and concentration. It can be used at home, at school, in the office and in the dance studio for brain reorganization, connectivity/alignment, a centering body/brain warm-up or to wake-up or calm-down. Variations include rhymes with young children, standing, lying down, and sitting in chairs, travelling and working with partners.
