Why choose Dance or Drama Therapy?


These therapies work in experiential modalities that focus on enhancing the connection between the mind and the body. They foster growth by expanding movement repertoires and by encouraging individuals to practice movements and role playing that allows for healing and growth on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

 Dance and drama therapies can make the difference between resistance and relationship by creating non-threatening group and individual exploration of feelings and therapeutic issues, such as self-esteem or personal insight.

I like to think of these therapies as additional tools to the traditional verbal therapies.
Instead of only sitting and talking about your problems, feelings and experiences you can add the opportunity to get up and express them through dance, movement, and drama.
For example: Showing/expressing anger in your body is much more powerful than sitting still and talking about it. When it is expressed through the body and mind then total, integrated healing can take place.
