‘From little things big things grow’

‘Broadening the Spectrum’ of dance movement therapy (DMT) with other expressive arts (DTAA conference theme, July, 2015, Melbourne), inspired the authors to present an experiential deeply enriched by other arts modalities. They were curious to know at what point a single modal DMT approach, supported by other expressive arts, could change into a multi – modal expressive arts approach (McNiff, 2009). Although they feel that therapists should have expertise in more than one modality to enable them to work in a truly multi – modal way, they found that they could successfully broaden their own work by collaborating with peers from varied backgrounds. Their ideas about single and multi – model approaches are highlighted.
