Result:The present study findings have shown that in pre- test, majority of nursing students 80% were in moderate level of stress in experimental group and 87% of nursing students were in moderate level of stress in control group. In post- test, 60% of nursing students were in low level of stress in experimental group. On the other hand, 73.3% of nursing students were in moderate level of stress in control group. Significant association was found between age and level of stress in experimental group. Dance therapy is more effective in age >20 years than in age <20 years as nursing students of age group >20 had shown decreased level of stress after dance therapy as compared to nursing students of age group <20.
