We all know how great it feels after a night out dancing with friends, or even just a little dance around in your own living room listening to your favourite music.
Dance/Movement Therapy was introduced as a profession in the 1960’s in the USA by Marian Chace. It gradually became internationally established and made its way to Australia in the 1970’s.
Dance Therapy enables communication where words are difficult or not possible. It improves the mental and physical health for the participants and encourages social connectivity.
Every individual has their own distinctive way of moving, and Dance Therapy allows participants to release their potential and get to know themselves through movement.
Dance Therapy workshops and performances are applicable to children and adults in diverse settings and can be adapted to the needs of the individual.
Dance Therapy can benefit :
- The elderly
- People with intellectual and physical disabilities
- People experiencing depression and anxiety
- People with eating disorders
- Children with learning disabilities
