Abstract Hypertension is a common condition that is associated with unhealthy lifestyle and represents an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases . To diagnose hypertension is necessary multiple measurements on, at least, two separate days, considering 1–4 weeks of interval. Hypertension is classified as: stage 1, systolic blood pressure (SBP)/diastolic blood pressure (DBP) ≥140/90 mm Hg, stage 2 ≥ 160/100 mm Hg, and stage 3 hyper- tension ≥180/110 mm Hg. The current treatment of hypertension involves antihypertensive medications and lifestyle modification, such as sodium restriction, smoking cessation and physical activity. A previous meta- analysis showed that increasing in physical activity level is very important to blood pressure control in individuals with hyperten-sion. It has also been shown that physical activity can decrease not just systolic (5 to 10 mm Hg), but also diastolic blood pressures (1 to 6 mm Hg). Dance therapy is a less conventional modality of physical activity in cardiovascular rehabilitation, which is positively linked to cognitive, emotional and social integration of the participants. Some data involving individuals with cardiovascular diseases are now available in the literature. A previous meta-analysis showed that dance therapy improved exercise capacity and quality of life of individuals with chronic heart failure 5 . Despite some randomized controlled trials (RCTs) about dance therapy and hypertension, no meta-analysis has been performed to guide clinicians and
