The Diploma training in Dance Movement Therapy is a two year part time training that offers a pathway toward practicing as a Professional Dance Movement Therapist. After the two year training, you will have completed the requirements for registration as a Provisional Professional member of the DTAA (Dance Therapy Association of Australasia) and be able to practice professionally. You must complete both years in order to practice as a Dance Therapist, however you may opt out of the training after the first year, if you choose, and still apply the principles of DMT to your work and lead therapeutic group dance sessions.

Who is this for?

This first year is designed for those who are interested in developing skills to work in the field of Dance Movement Therapy in the future, or those who would like to integrate therapeutic dance into an existing related Profession such as Counselling, Psychotherapy, Psychology, Teaching, Occupational Therapy, or Physiotherapy. It is also ideal for Arts Therapy Trainees who wish to specialize in Dance Movement Therapy as part of their training. The second year supports students to practice more clinically, and individually, and to gain the required practice and supervision hours to be able to register as a  professional DMT.

Course Content

The first year is experiential in nature, utilising current DMT practice and tools to develop embodied skills and understanding. This experiential learning will be supported by a strong theoretical base, provided through workshops, lectures, tutorials, supervision, coursework and readings throughout the year. Training modules will be taught by experienced Dance Movement Therapists, and will include Guest Presenters who are experts in the field of Dance Movement Therapy, both Nationally and Internationally.
