Isn’t it worrisome to see your kids stressed, anxious or depressed?
They may even make efforts to express themselves in whatever possible ways they can, to convey their emotions to you. But sometimes, we as parents, don’t get what they are trying to say, and pretend to have understood their sentiments, only to make them feel better for the time-being.
But is that the solution to the problem? Or is there a way where they can effortlessly express their feelings, be it those of happiness and fun or those of sadness and anger? And if yes, then in what way is it possible?
Let us begin by asking you, how does your kid express his/her thoughts and feelings?
Through facial expressions.
No! Not via dancing, right?
Then let dancing be a medium for them to express emotions loud and clear.
Through Dance Movement Therapy (DMT).
Now, what is DMT?
The American Dance Therapy Association defines, DMT as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, for the purpose of improving health and well-being.
To know more about DMT “in simpler terms” and about dance in general, hear from the expert, Ms. Meghna Thacker! She has a rich experience working with different body movements in Mat Pilates, Yoga, Rehab & Dance. Lately, she has also added a new vertical of Movement Therapy. Her objective is to bring all her movement experiences from over the years & help people get their mind & body connect & help them release their physical manifestation of the emotional turmoil that stays in the body.
