Dance/Movement Therapy Connections: Resiliency in Motion

(One Day Spring Virtual Conference) 


As we observe the anniversaries of the changes to our lives that the pandemic and heightened racial unrest wrought in 2020, we wish to pause to honor the innovation and grit of our dance/movement therapy community, to acknowledge our grief, and to celebrate our individual and collective resiliency.  Let's come together, witness, listen, share and dance with one another. This one-day virtual mini-conference is an opportunity for members to share best practices in new innovations that we have discovered as teletherapists and socially distant frontline workers, to receive updates from the ADTA Board of Directors, to witness each other's journeys through a collective movement experience and to celebrate the joy of dance to connect, heal and unite. (4.5 ADTA CEs, 1.5 NBCC CEs, 1.5 NYLCAT CEs)

Free Peer Supervision (NY chapter of ADTA) -


Our monthly **FREE** Peer Supervision online meetings will now include a movement and self-care section. We have been very excited to connect with DMTs throughout the country; these online meetings are open to all, not just NY residents. Please spread the word and join us for our next Peer Supervision!


We would like to emphasize that this is a PEER supervision group where the main focus of this supervision will be to discuss practice related subjects like difficult cases, burn out prevention, compassion fatigue, interventions etc. We kindly ask that topics like licensure be directed towards consultations. 

-All peer supervision groups are confidential. As this is a peer group, no BC-DMT/LCAT hours will be gained from these sessions. 

-Open to those around the world; not just for New Yorkers!

***For every 4 peer supervision sessions attended receive 1 ADTA CEU!***
