Abstract Purpose: This review aims to reveal how music and dance participation relates to key social determinants of health, and acts as population wellbeing and health promotion and preventive tools for people without pre-existing health issues in diverse social groups. Methods: A qualitative systematic literature review addresses the questions: 1) How might music and dance cultural practices relate to social determinants of health?; 2) What gaps exist in the current body of research examining how healthy individuals/populations maintain and promote good health and wellbeing through music and dance participation?; 3) What are the implications of the current body of literature for healthcare, policy and research? Results: Music and dance relate to key social determinants of health, from social and cultural, and physical and mental health perspectives. A number of gaps in the literature exist, including underrepresentation of middle aged participants, men, and Indigenous, LGBTQIAP+, and migrant populations. There is a lack of consistency in theoretical and methodological approaches, and a language for effective communication across arts and health audiences. Conclusions: A significant opportunity exists for cross-disciplinary collaboration to advance healthcare and arts policy, generate cost-effective approaches to preventive healthcare practice, and enhance the wellbeing and health of large and diverse populations. © 2020, © 2020 The Author(s).

Promoting wellbeing and health through active participation in music and dance: a systematic review. We focus particularly on active participation and healthy populations taking a social determinants of health perspective to examine how in todays world humans are maintaining their wellbeing and health through performing arts that involve music. While the strength of connection between performing arts and health seems to have diminished in modern times particularly in Western societies there is growing interest in applying a modern-day lens to understand the contribution of performing arts participation to wellbeing and health. In addressing the initial key research question the evidence suggests that music and dance relate to several social determinants of health in potentially positive ways. However a much larger body of research is developing that is focused on using arts practices such as music and dance in the treatment of ill-health.
