Dance/Movement Therapist

Emerging as a distinct profession in the 1940s, dance/movement therapy, a creative arts therapy, is rooted in the expressive nature of dance itself. Dance is the most fundamental of the arts, involving a direct expression and experience of oneself through the body. It is a basic form of authentic communication, and as such it is an especially effective medium for therapy. Based in the belief that the body, mind, and spirit are interconnected, dance/movement therapy is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) as “The psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process that furthers the emotional, cognitive, social, and physical integration of the individual.”
