Introduction to Dance Movement Therapy Workshop

A 3-session workshop

The International Dance Therapy Institute of Australia Inc (IDTIA) has been offering long-term training and short courses in Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) since 1989.

In November 2024, we will commence the 2 year IDTIA Clinical Training in Dance Movement Therapy (DMT CT) course. The Introductory course is a prerequisite for enrollment in the DMT CT course. 

Our first Introductory Workshop for 2024 will provide experiences of dance movement in the therapeutic context. It will introduce participants to some of the core skills used by Dance Movement Therapists working in clinical and community settings. The workshop is suitable for dancers, therapists and health workers, interested in the application of dance movement therapy for groups with a social or health issue.

The Introductory Workshop will be held via Zoom, over 3 Thursday evenings.

Dates: 11th, 18th and 25th of April 2024
Time: 6.30- 8.30pm (Melbourne time)
Cost: $120.

Participants will be required to attend all sessions if considering applying for the Clinical Training in Dance Movement Therapy.

IDTIA will be repeating this workshop at intervals during 2024. If you are not able to participate in the April Introductory Workshop please express your interest in a future workshop to Karen Nankervis (
