Happy New Year,
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.
I just discovered the Where the Hell is Matt? video. If you haven’t seen it, it is worth the 4 minutes and 53 seconds. This is an incredible example of the power of dance. It brought me to tears. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I am available for private coaching sessions in dance, yoga, and cheerleading. You can conveniently book appointments with me through CoachUp. Hope to hear from you soon!
See how dance has helped this Marine creatively express his military experiences.

Really interesting branch of psychology that I have just become aware of. I used to teach hip hop dance classes and have always found this form of dance to be quite therapeutic. Check out their website!
