Dance therapy

Dance therapy, or Dance movement therapy (sometimes referred to as choreotherapy), is the psychotherapeutic use of movement for emotional, cognitive, social, behavioural and physical conditions.

Dance therapy is based on the premise that the body and mind are interrelated, mental and emotional problems can result in muscle tension and constrained movement patterns compounding the original condition. Conversely the state of the body can affect mental and emotional well being both positively and negatively.
