Dance, which is sometimes referred to as a global language, is more than just physical expression. It explores psychological topics and creates a tapestry of feelings, thoughts, and overall well-being. This study endeavors to elucidate the complex interplay between the art form of dance and the field of psychology, thereby illuminating the profound influence that bodily movement can exert on the cognitive and emotional processes of the human psyche. At its very core, dance serves as a profound medium for emotional expression, enabling individuals to effectively communicate intricate sentiments often beyond verbal language's limitations. This article evaluates recent studies on the benefits of performing arts engagement, particularly dance practices and education, for improving physical and psychological health. It aims to examine the relationship between dance education and participants' well-being and determine the disparity between those who participate and those who do not. The research uses a qualitative-descriptive approach to explore the intricate relationship between dance and psychology/mental health. The study includes terms like health promotion, creativity, psychological health, mental well-being, better quality of life, anxiety prevention, and social participation.
