Beauty in Dance

eXpressionist Statement:

The cuff bracelet that I designed is my interpretation of Shuntae Williams’ research, "Is Dance/Movement Therapy Beneficial to Patient Care?" When piercing out the images, I wanted to convey that dance and movement are beneficial for both the mental and physical health of the patient. This type of therapy helps reduce stress, disease, and bad moods. When looking at the piercings in my bracelet, you can see that the patient is upset at first, and then while listening to music, the patient's self-esteem builds. Gradually, the patient is now able to express his or her feelings and begins to feel better.
