Dance, Movement & Spiritualities explores the relationship between spirituality, dance and movement. This peer-reviewed journal disseminates the idea and findings of practitioners and researchers who are actively and creatively working with spirituality. The journal offers a diverse platform for scholars working within and across the fields of dance studies, theology/religious studies, anthropology, ethnography, sociology, health studies, dance movement psychotherapy, and dance histories.
