Launched in 2013 in the studios of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, dance therapy has helped thousands of people in their medical treatment or psychotherapy. How does it contribute to the personal health of individuals who dance? The dance therapy and movement acts as a supplement in the treatment of disorders, such as mental health, neurological or psychological disorders.
In fact, it can even be the main therapy for these people. Indeed, it will take not only isolated people to socialize more, but also to improve their physical and cognitive abilities. Therefore, their well-being goes through therapy through dance and movement.
Decreased symptoms of depression and relief of fibromyalgia are just some of the beneficial factors of dance therapy. It also helps to reduce anxiety. In short, it helps people to awaken their energy, vitality and sensuality that has decreased over time.
It’s self-expression and emotions, and the rediscovery of the body and pleasure.
This initiative, unique in Montreal, moved into the Espace Danse of the Wilder Building, in the center of the Quartier des spectacles. Everyone, without exception, may enjoy the benefits of this practice.
You wish to encourage dance therapy? Help us fund the program and Espace Danse of the Wilder Building by participating in our fundraising campaign. By grouping all dance organizations in the same building at the Quartier des spectacles, students will have more support.
The fundraising will also directly help various academic and clinical research about dance therapy. You should know that there is currently no training of this type in Canada. By helping us financially, we can also train new therapists by developing a graduate program in dance therapy.
Help the people of Montreal to regain not only their health but also their taste for life. Develop your self-esteem by the movement, rhythm and music. Trust our ballet or contemporary dance workshops to comfort you in your journey.
