RESIDENTIAL VISITS

Residential Visits

 When Music and Movement reveal Magic!

 

Endless possibilities to engage into Dance and Movement – Physical, Cognitive and Emotional Connection

Monica works with each individual and yet encouraging the cohesive group rhythm. Every Moment
is treasured with respect, mourning, frustrations, joy and laughter and any other sensations can be
ritualised in the group movement, allowing for emotional release and group bonding. It is the body
expression, the mind that wonders, it is the spirit that senses the emotions.
The session is fun and explorative, focuses on the person to become full participant, a place to
express themselves through dance, at their own pace. The visits are based on Dance Movement
Therapy (DMT) with principles of Creative Dance. (link for DMT)
