The benefits of dance/movement therapy (DMT) as a psychotherapeutic intervention are well-established. The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA), founded in 1966, is a professional organization dedicated to the profession of dance/movement therapy. Dance/movement therapy uses movement to "further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual." Through movement, DMT can help individuals with a wide range of psychological disorders achieve greater self-expression.
On March 23 - 24, 2015, the ADTA was once again a national cosponsor and proud to participate in Arts Advocacy Day. It is a day we joined with other creative arts therapies as well as other organizations to emphasize the importance of developing strong public policies and appropriating increased public funding for the arts.
