Dance & Movement Therapy

Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.

Dance/movement therapy has been shown to help a variety of populations including children with special needs. It improves body coordination, helps with impulse control, expands motor skills and so on. Other than this Dance/movement therapy provides a fun way for children to socialize and spend time with each other.

At weCan we try and make school fun for the children. Dance and movement classes are always a source of joy for them. Using props like hula hoops, ribbons, balloons and so on make the classes fun and interesting. It encourages children to be in a group, it is also a break from the monotonous routines of their classes.
