Did you know that dance can help prevent some types of cancer? Rhythmic Consciousnesses was launched to initiate a thought revolution that recognizes regular dancing and rhythmic movements as an enjoyable and scientifically sound way to maintain healthy minds and bodies. In this inaugural edition, readers will hear from cancer survivors, doctors, dancers, academics, and even a physicist. They will learn how a Flamenco dancer coped with cancer by tapping out rhythms from her chair and how dance may have evolved from the burial rites of the first humans. From their diverse backgrounds, the contributors offer a rich portrait of the history, evolution and diversity of rhythmic movement. Join in this discovery of the timeless power and allure of dance.
