Dance Movement Therapy

No contact has been listed for this event, please contact the venue listed below.


Dance Movement Therapy was born from the union between two fields: dance and psychology. It is founded on the principles that a vital connection exists between personality and the way in which one moves, and that changes in movement behaviour affect the emotional, intellectual and physical health of the individual (ADMT UK, 2009).

Dance Movement Therapy works with the body and its own language, looking for a full integration of the individual (mind-body).
Movement can lead to psychological changes, promoting health, social and emotional development.

Dance Movement Therapy often uses music, props and art materials in the sessions, in order to expand the possibilities for the individual to express themselves.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This workshop will take us on an inner journey of discovery, providing a space to meet with ourselves and others. Through movement and music, we will be able to explore intra-and inter-personal relationships and have a better understanding of what is dance movement therapy.

This is an Experiential Workshop that will allow the participant to have a better awareness of their bodies, a better understanding of themselves and gain knowledge of certain tools used in Dance Movement Therapy. We will give voice (verbal communication) to movement (non-verbal communication), experiencing this connection in a playful way.

No previous knowledge of dance is necessary. We recommend the use of comfortable clothes.

The number of the participants is limited so we advise you to book your place as soon as possible. Attendance must be confirmed in advance.
