The International Dance
Therapy Institute of Australia (IDTIA)
was established in Melbourne in 1989 out
of a need for extended study and training
in dance therapy. Dr.
Marcia Leventhal, who studied with
early dance movement therapy pioneers
and conducted the Graduate Dance Therapy
Program at New York University for sixteen
years, directed the initial IDTIA training
programs. The IDTIA currently provides
training at Introductory, Certificate,
and Advanced Diploma levels, in addition
to professional development workshops.
The Advanced Diploma in
Dance Therapy is a part-time three-year
coursework and fieldwork programme which
has an optional exit point at the end
of the first year of study. Students exiting
after one year of study are awarded the
Certificate in Dance Therapy.
