The training is ideal for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation specialists, aged care nurses and anyone who is involved in using movement in a well-being capacity.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW This program aims to enhance the techniques that health practitioners employ when implementing creative movement activities or in care or rehabilitation.

 The program demonstrates ways in which movement :
 • increases coordination, strength, and flexibility while releasing body tension and improve balance and, 
 • creates a familiar environment in which the participants enjoy movement and music in a safe, supportive environment.

 It is customised for health practitioners who have limited or no background in creative movement, focusing on:
 • dance styles, 
 • the relationship between dance and music, 
 • the use of rhythm in dance exercises, and 
 • the creative process.

 Participants will gain the knowledge and skills to :
 • incorporate creative movement in rehabilitation, care and well-being programs, and
 • confidently engage in experiences that resonate with their clients.
