What’s meant by Therapeutic Dance/Movement?
Therapeutic dance/movement encompasses the aspect of communication that isn’t word or verbal language-based. This includes, for example, physical gestures, movements, and somatic awareness (the awareness one has of one’s body from the inside out) as well as the tone, pitch, pace etc when speaking. I use the term therapeutic to describe the deliberate use of dance and movement to honor and nuture the individuals intrinsic non-verbal forms of expression and communication.
