“What is our personal story? Who have we been, who are we now, and who will we be?”

This 3-hour workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to explore their personal “stories” through dance and movement. These true expressions of self are the basis of our ability to relate to others with honesty and openness. The underlying principles of Dance/Movement Therapy will be illustrated through individual, dyadic, and small and large group experientials. Join us to:

  • learn about and practice the fundamental elements of Dance/Movement Therapy
  • explore moving in a natural, non-self-critical manner
  • develop and express your creativity, spontaneity, and connection with others on a non-verbal level

*For students or those who are encountering a financial barrier to attending, please feel free to use the Students/financial needs ticket option ($40 per ticket).

York University is wheelchair accessible.
