Happy New Year all. At the ADTA conference in Brooklyn, NY this past October I participated in a project called ADTA Talks. Fifteen dance/movement therapists spoke about the work that they do in a TED Talks style presentation. I was priviledged to be one of those chosen few DMT’s. My talk was focused on my experiences practicing DMT with veterans and active duty military as I am among the onlyDMT’s in the world that have the exceptional honor to work with this population. If you missed ADTA Talks, don’t worry; the inspiring presentations will be available on YouTube soon. So stay tuned!

Dance therapy is alive and well in 2012 and stands strong in this tumultuous time in our history. This year’s ADTA conference in Albuquerque, NM was a colorful collage of connection, new ideas, creativity, and deep wisdom. The International Balloon Fiesta was the perfect backdrop for this meeting, as we all felt lifted by one another’s support and enthusiasm. In the two days that I attended workshops I experienced dance through drumming, touch, eco-therapy, clinical assessment, and trauma exploration. Dance as therapy is crucial to the healing of humanity’s wounds; the evidence cannot be ignored. So wherever you are, dance strong, dance loud, and dance often. You owe it to yourself.
