Dance Therapy

Dance Therapy is a healing practice that focuses on the interaction between the mind and body in health and illness.  The mind and body are interrelated and healing occurs when the mind and body connect in an expressive, therapeutic manner.

The American Dance Therapy Association defines dance therapy as:

"The psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration of the individual" (2008).
