Dance Movement Therapy

When you feel sad, dance. Start with your heart. Your body will follow.

Dance has been used therapeutically for thousands of years. It has been used as a healing ritual in the influence of fertility, birth, sickness and death, since earliest human history but, the establishment of dance as a therapy and as a profession occurred in the 1950s.

Over the period 1840 to 1930, a new philosophy of dance developed in Europe and the United States, defined by the idea that movement could have an effect on the mover i.e. that dance was not simply an expressive art.

Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) or Dance Therapy is the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance to support intellectual, emotional and motor functions of the body.

As a form of expressive therapy, DMT looks at the correlation between movement and emotion. A typical DMT session has four main stages: preparation, incubation, illumination, and evaluation. Organizations such as the American Dance Therapy Association and the Association for Dance Movement Therapy, United Kingdom maintain standards of profession and education throughout the field. DMT is practiced in various clinical settings.

I adapted the DMT in the Indian context and have been conducting various DMT workshops through India with various organizations, hospitals and clinics. Write to me at dimple@dimplekaur.com or contact me to know more about the process.

The NAB Project

Background

National Association of Blind provides learning and development opportunities for the children with visual and hearing disabilities. The association provides to both children and their supervisors with infrastructure, exposure and opportunities to have a better life. In this endeavor, the association has introduced Dance and Movement Therapy (DMT) as a learning opportunity. DMT has demonstrated lot of potential of developing expression, physical energy channelization and over all therapeutic benefits for such students.

Aims and Objectives

The aim is to help the visually challenged children in enhancing self-confidence, expression building & overcome communicating phobia along with reducing risk of muscle and bone disease as the subjects are normally not undertaking any physical activities. The program seeks to introduce and create a structure of DMT intervention in a systematic manner as part of handling, management and healing process for the students of NAB. The end state will be that the handlers and supervisors of these children will be able to administer DMT to the children in an ongoing basis.

Methodology

The program will be administered by Dr. Dimple Kaur, PHD, MS, CHt – A Psychotherapist and DMT expert. She has provided training interventions over a period of multiple weeks with the students and handlers of the children. She has taught them individually, combined, joint and group movements which can also be practiced by the children and handlers. This has helped tremendously in self-confidence, expression building & overcome communicating phobia which lot of these children demonstrate. The entire approach has been developed to ensure that the children and handlers can experience capabilities hereto suppressed or not understood using the assets the children have. The program also focuses on using body to develop senses and capabilities which will be new to the subjects and will have positive impact on the management & healing process.

Combination of Divinity &
Self-realization

The team, as part of the process developed the program presented on April 25th 2014, at Tamil Sangam, New Delhi wherein the children with support of their handlers presented Swambhu. The plan was to use dance and spirit of movement to demonstrate the incarnation of Shiva – the one who is self-born and not through any parent, the one who never dies and thus deliver the message of power within us. The students demonstrated the fact that we all are made up of five elements- Sky, Air, Fire, Water and Earth therefore at the basic level, we are all the same.

SIVA - A Dr. Dimple’s attempt to help create a platform of free expression, experiment and innovation in the framework of Indian Classical dance and culture.

SIVA, with the blessings of divine proposes to provide that outlet to experiment while respecting the tradition to create a more meaningful, modern and relevant content.
