How Do We Dance at Work?


Physical fitness and other wellness programs are difficult to implement and maintain. It turns out that dance is one of the most efficient methods of getting people moving and physically active. Join us at the forefront of an innovative movement to change everyday life through dance. Design for Dance 2016: Dance for Health will bring together heads of wellness, educators, and dancers to demonstrate specific tools that can apply to everyday life – whether at work or elsewhere. Scientific research has shown that we can only get people to do what they already want to do. People want to dance, and at Design for Dance we are sharing opportunities for employees, teams, patients, and clients to dance in a fun and stress free environment.  We invite you to be a part of the movement!



“Design for Dance brings together inspiring educators and professionals exploring the frontiers of dance and health. Dance has enormous potential to benefit individuals and companies and BJ Fogg’s Stanford Persuasive Technology lab has a history of making such potentials a reality. I look forward to participating in the future.”


“The connections that I formed — such as a teacher willing to serve on the Advisory Board of our new East Bay chapter, a mom suggesting channels for where we could find more youth leaders and potential funding, businesspeople wanting to partner to make dance accessible through mobile technology, a UC Berkeley student who’s applying to start a chapter, a SF Ballet development associate who will now be volunteering with us, and so much more — will be incredibly beneficial going forward.”
Jackie Rotman, Executive Director at SparkSF, TEDx Speaker
