Abstract
Physical activity programs are one of the tools that can be used to prevent noncommunicable diseases. Dance could be also a type of physical activity that may appeal even to people who are not otherwise active and may be a form of activity that is more acceptable than others. Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to collate information on dance interventions leading to Improving Physical Activity and Health across all age categories. Methods: We used the portal for electronic information sources to identify articles published within the last 16 years. Results. Dance interventions contribute to increase physical activity of youth and also contributes to the development of creative capacity, constructiveness, self-esteem and self-confidence etc. The two main goals of dance in the category of adult individuals is energy expenditure, which should correspond with the recommendations for physical activity and stress reduction. Dance interventions for the elderly are effective both as prevention of falls and as an instrument to maintain or improve cognitive functions. Discussion: Including dance into the offer of physical activities broadens the range of options where everyone can find an activity to match their needs. Conclusion: Dancing has the potential to be an attractive physical activity that can be adjusted to fit a target population's age, physical limitations, and culture.
