Dance / Movement Therapy Workshops

Dance in Education

Dance movement therapy can be used highly effectively with both educators and students. Dance therapy helps educators expand their teaching/facilitation skills by incorporating the use of expressive movements and gestures. They are made aware of non-verbal aspects of their facilitation that influence the teaching process, like body language, facial expressions,voice and so on. This helps facilitate a better teacher-student equation. 




About DMT


“Dance/movement therapy is the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process that furthers emotional, cognitive, and physical integration in individuals. It effects changes in feelings, cognition, physical functioning and behavior."

                    - The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA)


Dance/movement therapy consists of movement activities which are therapeutic as well as fun. These increase range of motion, body co-ordination, attention span and develop spatial awareness, memory and sequencing skills and group co-ordination. Dancing together helps gain self-esteem and confidence while sharing thoughts, ideas and stories through one's body. Most important of all, one learns to be creative and imaginative while being sensitive to each other’s movement cues and language.
