Learn to engage, inspire and uplift older adults and people with dementia through dance and expressive movement.
This workshop, based on DMT teachings of pioneer Norma Canner, will present ways to structure groups sensitive to the needs and abilities of those present, to elicit self-expression, liveliness and increased socialization. Focusing on movement strengths, abilities and interactions in the present moment, the therapist creates a safe space that builds self-esteem.
