Dance Movement Therapy
Dance/ Creative movement therapy is a specialised psychotherapeutic method that uses movement and creative expression to further socio-emotional, cognitive and somatic integration. This approach is based on the principle that the body and mind are integrated. It helps in self-expression to bring about a change in the total functioning of an individual.
How is DMT useful?
There are several ways in which movement therapy can be beneficial to individuals, depending on their needs and goals. Following are some of them:
Explore links between thought, feelings and actions
Explore self expression
Explore imagination, abstraction and creativity
Explore self-awareness, self-esteem and personal autonomy
Explore social and communication skills
May serve as a way to build coping skills
Explore leadership skills
Different From a Dance Class
Movement Therapy attempts at providing a safe space to those seeking it to explore their emotional, social and physical selves through their authentic movement styles. There is no choreography or uniform structure to movements as one would find in a dance class.
YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A DANCER TO PARTICIPATE IN MOVEMENT SESSIONS.
Movements are drawn from those seeking it, in sync with the needs that they enter the space with. The role of the facilitator is to guide the exploration and the rest of the journey is that of the participants.
