dance therapy [it exists]

September 24, 2008

sometimes when you are a program assistant you don’t get to choose your duties. or the classes that get put on the schedule for the youth in your program. typically i do have control over such things, but not in the case of the laughter and dance therapy class that we hosted from a local group today.

my duties may or may not have included being volunteered to learn and perform in front of 20 teenagers/20-somethings an interpretive [worship] song with interludes.


this is all i have for today.

  2. Hi Lacey. I was drawn to your post because I actually am a registered dance/movement therapist (I exist!) and I was curious about this “dance therapy” class that you hosted?

    Dance is inherently therapeutic by its very nature…. but above and beyond that there is actually a highly trained (Master’s level) mental health profession that applies the therapeutic aspects of dance within a therapeutic relationship. I’m just curious about your experience and wondering if it was with trained, registered dance/movement therapists or if it was some other sort of positive dance experience? Sounds like it was a good experience for all, whatever it was.

    Feel free to read more about the field of DMT at my blog if you want.

    Best, Lora
