Dance Movement Therapy

Tapping into the inherent source of creativity within us, Dance Movement Therapy is the practice of holistic embodiment.


Becoming conscious of the body/mind connection, we explore how movement behavior emerges in the functional, expressive, communicative, and adaptive realms.

When we dance, we feel the range of what it means to be alive. We connect to our body in an organic and supportive way. We are inspired by what is here and now. We feel the freedom of movement without comparison, agenda, or judgement.

Joyous Authentic Movement is a class to JAM with curiosity, openness, acceptance, and love. You are invited to connect to your wild and joyous body. You are invited to get out of your head and into the flow. You are invited to move as a source of authentic expression.

The class will include guided meditative movements, gradually increasing in space and time into self guided expressions of movement. There is no prior experience with dance or structured movement necessary, only open minds and willingness to embrace our inner-child that loves to dance! Please dress in loose comfortable clothes that allow for movement.
