Ann Cuddy: your body language shapes who you are

The fascinating part of behavioral psychologist Ann Cuddy’s research is that everyone has the tools to change not only how the world perceives them but how we perceive ourselves. In other words, changing the body actually changes the mind! As a movement educator, I know that every dancer that has studied with me  understands what it’s like to be successful and confident. They have applied their intelligence toward a task and , over time, found success. And the arts, taught well, do not distinguish between good or bad as creativity is simply the courage to apply oneself 100%. This is the makings of confident children and successful adults. This is just one of the reasons I teach dance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ks-_Mh1QhMc

  1. Powerful huh Ruby! Her tagline is “Bodies change our minds. Minds change our behavior. Behavior changes outcomes.” Hardly gets better than that for reinforcing that dance can change the world 🙂
