The Unit: "Dance for wellness

​A resource for teaching Health, Wellbeing and Physical Eduation"


Dance is very effective in developing the whole child; affective and physical capabilities in students.   Dance has the benefit of increasing wellness through the means of physical education; “movement education” and the benefit of “affective education” through the creative approach aspects of dance. Physical Health and Education Canada (PHEC) (2014) state that “Dance educates the entire self and provides an ideal vehicle for students to learn physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially”.
