As infants, humans naturally move through patterns of movement that connect and organize their bodies and brains. Over time, the movement patterns of modern life combined with illness, trauma, and other injuries can disrupt those connections, causing a disorganization of the central nervous system.
BrainDance is a centering tool of eight movement patterns for body and brain created by Anne Green Gilbert of the Creative Dance Center. These patterns are designed to mimic the movement patterns developed in the first year of life as cycling through these movements has been found to be helpful in reorganizing, oxygenating, and healing the body, and reorganizing the nervous system. These movement patterns are easy to learn and to adapt, and can be practiced by people of all ages and abilities.
