Creative Movement Therapy Workshop

Creative Movement Therapy (CMT, also known as Dance Movement Therapy) is an alternative therapy that uses personal body movement.

This discipline uses expressive movement & dance as a vehicle, through which you can engage yourself in the process of personal integration and growth.

CMT is a relationship between motion and emotion; by exploring a more varied vocabulary of movement, you will experience the possibility of becoming more securely balanced yet increasingly spontaneous and adaptable.

In this CMT Workshop rather than teaching dance, therapists first try to assess the individual’s needs and help develop movement patterns, taking off from the physical-emotional-intellectual level of their clients.

Using informal approaches like movement activities and games, facilitator tries to elicit movements that are considered symbolic of the inner voices of individual.

Therapists use both directive and nondirective approaches to help individuals focus on and explore their personal movement vocabulary.

Creative Movement Therapy is a psychotherapeutic framework that works with the mind-body connection to use personal movement language and dance for the health and wellness of an individual’s physical, emotional, cognitive, social and behavioral aspects.
