Dance Movement Therapy and Artistic Expression For Healing

Dance/Movement Therapy and Artistic Expression for healing
What does dance and moving our body have to do with art? The answer is EVERYTHING!  Have you ever put on upbeat music, and try to keep your body still?  Impossible, isn’t it?  Music moves through us and our bodies cannot help but move to the rhythm and beat.  As the music plays it moves our bodies, our emotions and that moves our energy.  As the energy moves, we begin to release and transform trapped or blocked emotions and memories.

Upcoming Classes & Events

Hello Expressive Arts Enthusiasts,
We have alot of fun stuff coming up this Summer & Fall 2012 in Expressive Arts.  During the first part of the Summer, we have been exploring our inner archetypes through, "LANGUAGE, POETRY, FAIRYTALE AND FOLKLORE" class.  It has been a deep and rewarding experience so far. 
During the first half of our Summer session at SDUIS, we ill offer "ART THERAPY WITH ADULTS"  This course will be filled with experiencial exercises and information about working with adults and the aging population.

We will also offer a couse in Language, Myth, Fairytale and Folklore.  In this course we will explore Myth and the role it plays in our personal lives, in our culture, and in the creative process.  We will be writing our own Hero's Journey.
