About Dance Movement Therapy
Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) is the use of natural movement as a vehicle, through which an individual can engage in the process of personal integration and growth. By exploring a more varied variety of movement, people experience the possibility of becoming more securely balanced, yet increasingly spontaneous and adaptable. Movement is a vehicle for self-expression and communication as a tool to dive into the unconscious realms of personality and illuminate them in the present. The dance movement therapy practitioner creates a holding environment in which such feelings can be safely expressed, acknowledged and communicated.
Dancing in a group increases self-esteem, confidence while sharing thoughts, ideas and stories by using one’s body and aids in coping with stressors.
