What is dance movement therapy?

Dance movement therapy is an experience-based, body-oriented, creative therapy built upon a trusting relationship between the client and the therapist. It uses dance and movement to initiate a process of change. In a world that’s seemingly run by cognitive prowess and rationality, it’s our very own right to reclaim our body and emotions back. That’s what we do in dance movement therapy.

Dance movement therapy uses movement and dance to promote emotional, social, cognitive and physical integration of the individual. ADTA

The dance therapy session is the choreography of the emotions in the service of the clients.
