This research reports on the first narrative review of Biodanza’s effects on health and wellbeing. The review explores manuscripts in four languages (i.e., Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English) and includes more than 200 documents. The protocol was evaluated according to the most recent SANRA guidelines and Kappa statistics. The research shows that the majority of the studies had descriptive approaches (29.2%), followed by robust control trials (26.8%), while the remaining studies included both narrative and systematic reviews (19.5%) as well as pilot (14.6%), ethnographic (7.3%), and assessment (2.4%) studies. The research team concluded that Biodanza is an innovative intervention to improve clinical and sociopedagogic outcomes in different cohorts (including kindergartens and chronic seniledisease patients) and should be fostered for additional trials along or in comparison with alternative interventions (such as Bodytasking).

Abstract

This research reports on the first narrative review of Biodanza’s effects on health and wellbeing. The review explores manuscripts in four languages (i.e., Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English) and includes more than 200 documents. The protocol was evaluated according to the most recent SANRA guidelines and Kappa statistics. The research shows that the majority of the studies had descriptive approaches (29.2%), followed by robust control trials (26.8%), while the remaining studies included both narrative and systematic reviews (19.5%) as well as pilot (14.6%), ethnographic (7.3%), and assessment (2.4%) studies. The research team concluded that Biodanza is an innovative intervention to improve clinical and sociopedagogic outcomes in different cohorts (including kindergartens and chronic seniledisease patients) and should be fostered for additional trials along or in comparison with alternative interventions (such as Bodytasking).
