Joy of Dance is a dance/movement therapy group for people with Parkinson’s Disease. This ongoing group meets on Fridays at 10-11 a.m. at the Seven Star School of Performing Arts in Brewster. Marie Carstens integrates movement with imagery, uses a vast array of movement qualities, rhythms and phrasing, as well as developmental neuromuscular patterns for support and coordination of movement with the goal of improving well-being and vitality as well as maintaining expressivity.
“Based on the empirically supported premise that the body, mind and spirit are interconnected, the American Dance Therapy Association defines dance/movement therapy as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual.” – American Dance Therapy Association
Marie invites you to move at your own comfort level and ability, as well as express feelings safely and playfully. Most importantly, this dance therapy group aims toward revitalizing ourselves while we dance together. Join me, a dance/movement therapist with 20 years of experience helping people move more freely and fully in body and mind.
Always aspiring to keep you moving freely and dancing life fully.
