The aim of this research was to create a best practice model of dance and health continuing professional development (CPD); to create a dynamic, interdisciplinary course of study for dancers who are engaged in facilitating dance across a range of dance genres within health care contexts.  The research and resulting programme of CPD aims to develop and expand the existing knowledge and competencies of dancers and dance teachers and promote best practice in delivery of dance across a variety of health settings in Ireland.  This research was carried out as part of a broader project to examine the role and application of dance in the broad context of health and wellness in Ireland; to develop relationships with key stakeholders for future implementation stages of the outcome of the research and to connect local authorities from across the country (focusing on rural regions) with existing interest and expertise in the area of arts and health to bring to the project. The Arts Services of Kildare, Tipperary and Kerry County Councils, Dance Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland made this project possible.
