The Next Generation
We are pleased to publish a selection of contributions by students. They include assignments recently submitted by DMT students for the completion of different parts of their training. The first, by Lyndal Pope, was for completion of the Advanced Diploma of DMT for the IDTIA. This is followed by short pieces submitted for an introductory module of Explore the History and Philosophy of Dance, for the Diploma of DMT in the recent Phoenix Institute DMT course in Melbourne. The four short articles are published under the topic of Healing Dance in Human History. Ancient healing and ritual dances were given some priority in this module as having been such an important part of community life. The module emphasised the history of the circle dance, as well as other dances from various cultures that can be drawn on for dance making purposes in DMT.
