Immerse yourself in the field of dance/movement therapy (DMT) during our 5-day or 3-day intensives. These experiential/didactic workshops are conducted by faculty of Antioch University New England’s Master’s Program in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling. The intensives will expose participants to a range of approaches currently in use in the field. No previous experience is necessary.
This workshop is intended for those wishing to explore the field of dance/movement therapy as a possible career and for those furthering their professional development. Participants will be introduced to a variety of approaches used in dance/movement therapy. We emphasize the organic and evolving nature of DMT, in which all draw from a variety of sources, and no dance/movement therapist is the same as any other. The presenters are past and present faculty members of the Master’s Program in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling at Antioch University New England. Each faculty will introduce one or two founder(s) into her content for the day in ways that embody the principles of that founder. We emphasize contributions of non-white influences throughout the curriculum. Please join us for a week or weekend of personal and professional self-discovery. A discount of $150 off of the registration fee is available for current undergraduate students.
