Dance Movement Therapy

Dance Movement Therapy

 

Dance Movement Therapy is an expressive therapy that engages both the mind and the body. The American Dance Therapy Association defines dance/movement therapy “as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual.”

Dance Movement Therapy can be especially helpful for building non-verbal relationships, such as Parent/Caregiver and baby through mirroring, attunement, and self-expression.
