This study interviewed 29 women from various countries and spiritual backgrounds, between the ages of 16 and 67, seeking to better understand how dance/creative movement supports women during difficult life struggles such as trauma from abuse, relationship breakups, community violence and loss of self, and how it acts as a connection to the sacred. Results yielded three overarching themes of empowerment, healing, and a connection to Spirit. The results also give rise to a unique healing element for women through dance. It appears as if dance provides these women with a resiliency to not only survive very difficult circumstances, but to move past them to a place of healing.
