Dance has always been an important aspect of all human cultures, and the study of human movement and action has become a topic of increasing relevance over the last decade, bringing dance into the focus of the cognitive sciences. This book discusses the wide range of interrelations between body postures and body movements as conceptualised in dance with perception, mental processing and action planning.
The volume brings together cognitive scientists, psychologists, neuroscientists, choreographers, and ballet teachers, to discuss important issues regarding dance and cognition. First, scientists introduce ideas that offer different perspectives on human movement. Professionals from the world of dance then go on to report how their creative and pedagogical work relates to cognition and learning. Finally, researchers with personal links to the dance world demonstrate how neurocognitive methods are applied to studying different aspects related to dance.
This book is suitable for students and professionals from the fields of neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, sport psychology and sport science, movement science, motor control and development, kinesiology, cognitive robotics, dance, choreography, dance education and therapy.

"This book is the first of its kind, combining science with the art of dance. The editors provide an appealing and informative overview of cognitive and neuroscientific approaches to dance, and use clear, effective diction to deepen the understanding of the physical, neural and cognitive principles of human motor learning." - Juliane Jacqueline Honisch, Behavioural Brain Sciences, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK
"This text provides a successful and exciting interdisciplinary approach to complex human behavior. It is suitable for students and researchers in the field of motor research in psychology and neuroscience, as well as for persons in sport education with a deep interest in dance from a practical and theoretical perspective." – Andrea Kiesel, Associate Professor of Cognitive Psychology, University of Wuerzburg, Germany
"Actions speak louder than words, but this book finds the words and pictures with which to give actions their voice. It does so by focusing on actions which are expressive and emotional rather than instrumental, the actions of dance, in a way which enriches and is enriched by new studies of the cognitive science and neuroscience of action." - Michael Arbib, USC Brain Project, University of Southern California, USA
