Paula added that it isn’t just physical health she’s talking about. She explained, “Especially when people are suffering from any mental health problems, I always say, ‘Move your body. Listen to your favorite music. Crank it up. Move your body.’ Dance is the one visual medium that also affects your serotonin levels. It’s like when you dance, there’s nothing like it. Words and music are everything, and they say it’s the language of everything.”
