Nii Armah Sowah shares his unique perspective on the healing power of dance and rhythm, and the powerful effects it has on depression, confidence, social anxiety and healing the body. Individually, and collectively, we are all engaged in a dance of life. For every emotion we have, there is a sound and a movement. When we inhibit our natural inclination for expression, we get emotional constipation, which could impact wellbeing. This involves healing of the self by including ourselves in the healing of the larger community, through traditional communal dance.
