Dance Therapy

Find a professional for Dance Therapy in New York

Based on the assumption that the body and mind are interrelated, dance/movement therapy is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association as the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process which furthers the emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration of the individual. 

The dance/movement therapist focuses on movement behavior as it emerges in the therapeutic
relationship.  Expressive, communicative, and adaptive behaviors are all considered for both group and individual treatment.  Body movement simultaneously provides the means of assessment and the mode of intervention.

Dance/movement therapists are employed in a wide variety of facilities as well as private practice.   They address the needs of a broad spectrum of people, including those with specific disorders and disabilities.
