      Proposed activities for the group


      currently being discussed include:



  • support and promotion of the profession, especially in areas where there is not yet an established association;
  • exchange of information and collaboration between DMT professionals internationally;
  • special projects including collaborative research.


Membership is expected to be open to all who are interested, from national associations, to training programs, practitioners, students, and other individuals associated with dance movement therapy. The group is currently working on a research project to document the current state of the profession of DMT internationally. Findings will be presented at the ADTA Conference in October 2018.
