Dance/movement therapy is a form of authentic communication based in the belief that the body, the mind and the spirit are interconnected. Dance/movement therapy involves a direct expression and experience of oneself through the body. It allows for individuals to embody their feelings and emotions so they can be expressed both verbally and physically. This integration achieves healing for the body, mind and sprit. Dance/movement therapy is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association as: "the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process that furthers the emotional, cognitive, social and physical integration of the individual."
Dance/Movement Therapy is rooted in the expressive nature of dance itself and had it's beginnings in the world of dance. DMT pioneers began as dancers and incorporated psychological theories into their work.
Early pioneers include: Marion Chace 1896-1970, Blanche Evan 1909-1982, Liljan Espenak, Mary Whitehouse 1911-1979, Trudi Schoop and Alma
