Workshop One
13th & 27th June 2021, 10am-12.30pm AEST
This workshop will be an opportunity to examine certain key elements which appear to contribute to the healing/wholing potential of Dance Therapy, including but not limited to:
Space, Mindfulness, Unfolding, Creation of a Sustainable Model, Organicity, and Range Development

Workshop One is introductory and appropriate for individuals with backgrounds in the helping/healing professions wanting to develop DMT skills as well as DMT graduates.


Workshop Two
11th & 25th July 2021, 10am-12.30pm AEST
This workshop will explore the role of Dance Therapy in healing from life’s TRAUMAS.
How the Dance therapist is able to create a safe and transformative environment for clients in order to discover, release, recuperate and develop will be the focus of these two workshops. Through a variety of Dance Movement Therapy interventions, based upon   focused dance movement observations of the facilitator in working with trauma survivors worldwide, participants will explore how to uncover and work with the embodied traumatic incident(s). Outcomes will be focused upon assisting clients to move through these embodied (body held) traumas, and into a more relaxed, productive, and self-evolved emotional, physical and spiritual life.
Workshop Two is for individuals who are already trained and practicing (or have practiced) DMT. Or for counselors, teachers or psychotherapists who do Workshop One.
