Summary/Abstract: The hypothesis from which we begin our approach is that a significant way of communication is non-verbal, the language of the body that can express emotions, thoughts, attitudes, without the need for words, postures, movements and gestures. Very important in non-verbal communication is the dance, which involves a specific way of communicating with others, but also with yourself. Through dance, communication blockages are overcome. Movement and gestures,expressive or symbolic, along with certain postures, can “communicate” emotions, feelings, attitudes,giving us access to the inner world of the dancer. In the study, we want to argue in favour of dance, as a form of communication and as a form of therapy, able to allow communication and harmonization of relations between people. We also seek to make some references to the LOVE Life and Dance:Expressive therapy for empowering youth, which will be conducted at the Faculty of Communication and International Relations, at Danubius University of Galati.
