The Practice of Authentic Movement: A Two Day Immersion with Connor Kelly

Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September 2019, Melbourne Venue TBC
The DTAA invites dance movement therapists, counsellors, psychotherapists, creative arts therapists, body workers, dancers, and those interested in exploring the use of movement and dance in their work to join us for this two-day immersion into the practice of Authentic Movement. This professional development workshop, facilitated by international presenter Connor Kelly, is suitable for practising and student therapists and practitioners.
On Saturday, Connor will facilitate two rounds of movement: working in dyads in the morning, triads in the afternoon and concluding with a breath circle.
Sunday morning is dedicated to a Long Circle, while in the afternoon we’ll look at ways to integrate Authentic Movement into your work, and how you might introduce the practice to clients.
