I purchased this book to understand how these two things intertwined with one another. Also to get some answers for a project about what I'm passionate about. I have figured out that certain techniques incorporated with dance help build motivation and self-confidence. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in dance and psychology. This book was tremendous help.

If you are a dancer or a dance-related professional, just read it no matter what. In such a compact book, you couldn't want any more. A dance department in a college would open a new course named "Psychology of Dance" if they knew that this book existed. I am going to translate it into a foreign language.
