DANCE MOVEMENT THERAPY

WHAT IS DANCE MOVEMENT THERAPY?

Movement is our first language. It is the dance of life. Dance and movement both express and affect how we feel.

In DMT, movement is used as a vehicle for self-expression, insight, and behavioral change in an affirming, non-judgmental environment.

It is an effective treatment for people with psychological, social, developmental, neurological, and physical challenges.

As a vehicle for self-growth and actualization, DMT is a creative, expressive, and profound process for anyone working toward overall well-being.

As a mind-body approach, dance/movement therapy can also be integrated into health and wellness education, facilitating self-care, socialization, creativity and empowerment.

Registered and Board Certified dance/movement therapists have completed a master’s degree in a program approved by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA).

For over 50 years, Dance/Movement Therapists have pioneered the understanding of how body and mind interact in health and in illness.

Whether the issue is the will to live, a search for meaning or motility, or the ability to feel love for life, Dance/Movement Therapists mobilize resources from that place within the self where body and mind are one.

  • A healthy relationship between body and mind

  • Positive self-esteem and body awareness

  • Emotional expression and stability

  • Innovative problem solving, creativity and playfulness

  • Enhanced communication skills and healthy relationships

  • Focus and attention
