Cancer Education through Dance: From Taproot to Grace Note
Cueva, Melany; Cueva, Katie
Convergence, v41 n2-3 p135-142 2008
Dance, as a way to create meaning, was included in a week-long cancer education course for community health workers in Alaska. The eight course participants were Alaska Native women from throughout Alaska, including those of Yup'ik, Inupiaq, Aleut, Tlingit, and Athabascan heritage. As reported by participants on end-of-course written evaluations and post-course written email correspondence, the expressive movements of dance as part of cancer education supported laughter, relaxation, fun, healing, learning, and deeper understanding.
