Given the high prevalence of depression among older adults (Murrock & Graor, 2014), there is a pressing need for effective treatment options in this population. Since dance is an activity-based intervention that engages participants physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally, it may be particularly well suited for addressing a variety of health conditions, including depression (Haboush, Floyd, Caron, LaSota & Alvarez, 2006).This brief literature review summarizes current research in this area and provides a knowledge translation plan to guide practitioners in implementing dance interventions linked to positive outcomes related to mood in the older adult population.
