"Dance is the hidden language of the soul" - Martha Graham
Experience the healing power of dance.
Dance is the ultimate form of self-expression and you need no prior dance experience.
Our dance movement therapy sessions enable you to connect body, mind and spirit as you are guided by our facilitator through opportunities to communicate through dance and movement with your inner self, respond to things you love and the things you want to change, feel more positive about yourself and empower you to take the steps you need to bring about that change.
Typically a dance-movement session will involve a gentle warm-up, guidance through some structured movements and mirroring activities, moving to the freedom to ‘dance as you feel’, expressing emotions, releasing tensions and freeing the spirit. The session concludes with a period mindfulness and calm reflection.
The health and well-being benefits of dance are well documented, including the release of ‘happy hormones’. Dance-movement therapy provides access to all those benefits without the discipline and potential pressure of learning dance steps. It enables you to be in the moment, express your thoughts and feelings and be in control in a setting that is safe and non-judgemental. All this, supported by the emotional power of music.
It is no coincidence that dance has been, throughout human history, an integral part of human existence. That’s because dance and movement are inherently therapeutic, connecting mind, body and emotions. Dance-movement therapy has found to be beneficial for people experiencing anxiety or depression, low self-esteem or lack of self-confidence, or for anyone who wants to feel energised and empowered as they tackle day to day challenges.
Dance-movement therapy has benefits for everyone. It provides a moment to be with yourself and express freely in whatever form the movement might take.
"The truest expression of a people is in its dance and in its music. Bodies never lie" - Agnes de Mille.
