Because we believe that movement and body patterns are indicative of a person’s personality and mood states, dance/movement therapists utilize movement observation and psychological framework to guide the therapeutic process. Dance/movement therapists use a spectrum of movement interventions in their practice, from simple breath work to full-bodied dance movements.

Illinois Chapter’s Mission:

  • Promote and advocate for dance/movement therapy in healthcare, educational, and research settings in Illinois.
  • Act as liaison between Illinois dance/movement therapists and Illinois legislative bodies.
  • Provide within-community support and networking opportunities to Illinois dance/movement therapists.
  • Offer continuing education for learning and growth for Illinois dance/movement therapists.
