The Codarts’ Dance Movement Therapy Master offers a 5 day intensive introduction course in dance movement therapy which will consist of experiential work and lectures on different approaches to dance movement therapy.
This introduction is open to anyone with an interest in dance movement therapy and with a willingness to physically engage and explore. The introduction can be taken as continuous professional education (participants can have the introduction course accredited at the ‘Register Vaktherapie’) and is strongly advised for people seriously considering to apply for the Master in Dance Movement Therapy at Codarts. It is also open to everyone interested to learn more about dance movement therapy and curious to explore personal processes.
The introduction provides professionals with the opportunity to experience dance movement therapy, explore whether continuing into a Dance Movement Therapy master is desirable and/or can enrich and deepen one’s own profession. The participant acquires basic knowledge of dance movement therapeutic methods and receives information about the current professional practice. The introduction provides a strong basis for the Master in Dance Movement Therapy offered at Codarts, which will start with a new cohort in September 2024. The highly skilled and experienced tutors in this introduction are members of our faculty.
The introduction has been described by former participants as a journey full of discoveries and as the Power of Dance:
"It was powerful, fun, playful, connecting. It was so good to have a lot of experiences and to be doing, rather than just receiving information. I learnt a lot, have a much better view of what DMT is, and I connected with the group. I felt heard, seen and included. I'm super happy that I came here."
“A way to achieve a deeper and clear understanding of Dance Movement Therapy which helped to make a choice about starting the Master”.
“Intensive, powerful, inspirational, multi-faceted and also reflective for one’s personal life”.
“The programme is interesting, inspiring, subtle and the tutors extremely experienced.”
“Renowned dance movement therapists are facilitating the group by offering a unique perspective on what dance movement therapy is and how we can use it to help people deal with psychopathology, emotional pain, fear and emotions”.
