Thank you to dancer, teacher, researcher, and author Glenna Batson for two great conversations about her work and her new book “Body and Mind in Motion: Dance and Cognitive Neuroscience in Conversation” and about her research on improving balance through somatics and dance improvisation.
Here’s Part 1 about “Body and Mind in Motion: Dance and Neuroscience in Conversation”
Here’s Part 2 about Glenna’s research on balance
