Dance Therapy Acceptance & Enthusiasm Through A Wellness Class: A Before-After Study
Romeo C. Ongpoy, Jr., Darwin M. Panganiban, Nancy A. Balatay
The objective of this study is to determine the acceptance and the relationship of dance enthusiasm before and after a wellness class as well as the changes after the class particularly in the understanding and promotion of dance therapy. This study adapts a before-after model through a wellness class and a cross-sectional method is also used to assess the before-after changes and the rest of the study variables. Results show that acceptance is high at 70% for dance therapy as Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and its practitioner as a healthcare professional, dance enthusiasm significantly increased as well, however, the before and after variables show that generally there is no significant difference (p= 0.072 with 0.05 level of significance) except in understanding (< 0.001) and promotion (0.019) variables. It can be concluded that more sessions must be conducted for development of dance therapy as a single class only improves understanding and promotion. Other CAM therapies may also be introduced based on the responses from the participants; these are poetry and recreational therapies.
