  • Effects of Dance Classes on Cognition, Depression, and Self-Efficacy in
           Parkinson’s Disease
    • Authors: Chantal M. Prewitt; Jasmine C. Charpentier; Joseph A. Brosky; Nancy L. Urbscheit
      Abstract: Executive function is an area of cognition commonly impaired in people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Deficits often result in poor planning, slow reactions, and reduced initiative. Reduced physical function is also associated with PD but studies indicated that it can significantly improve through dance (Earhart, 2009; Hackney et al., 2007a, b). Dance may provide some positive effect on executive function but there’s little research investigating the effects of dance on cognitive symptoms of PD. The objective of this study was to determine whether executive function improves in individuals with PD following a dance program. Three different executive function measures (semantic fluency, dice, and fist-edge-palm) were assessed before and after an 8-week dance class that met twice a week. All measures were from the scales for outcomes in Parkinson’s disease-cognition (SCOPA-COG). The fist-edge-palm measure was also assessed before and after one single class. Six individuals with PD and between 62 and 87 years of age participated in the study. Results showed no significant changes in any of the three executive function tests administered before and after the 8-week dance program. However, the fist-edge-palm measure given before and after a single class significantly improved (p = 0.02). This suggests that therapeutic dance may specifically improve the executive function domain of cognition, particularly when connected to physical movement. This finding also suggests that participating in dance class on a daily short-term basis can improve executive function. If this effect is consistent, dance programs could improve short-term executive function in individuals with PD.

  • The Therapeutic Movement Relationship in Dance/Movement Therapy: A
           Phenomenological Study
    • Authors: Jessica Young
      Abstract: The therapeutic movement relationship (TMR) is central to the work of dance/movement therapists; yet, a definition of this core concept remains absent. This phenomenological study explored the meaning and essence of the TMR, as experienced by eight co-researchers who are board certified dance/movement therapists, in order to arrive at a definition. Data analysis of semi-structured interviews resulted in five textural themes that describe the essence of the TMR: (a) fundamental, foundational, and integral, (b) powerful, dimensional, and full, (c) shared presence and connection through movement, (d) creative collaboration, and (e) evidence of the TMR. In addition, three structural themes emerged that describe how the TMR is experienced: (a) presence, (b) space and time, and (c) creativity. These themes informed the creation of a definition of the TMR, which can support the teaching, learning, practice, supervision, and research of this critical component of dance/movement therapy.

  • ADTA Credentials: Past, Present, and Future
    • Authors: Julie Miller; Linda Aaron-Cort; Elissa Queyquep White
      Pages: 213 - 224
      Abstract: The 50th anniversary of the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) is a celebration of our achievements over the last half-century and a time for analysis and reflection regarding all facets of the development of the profession of dance/movement therapy. This is an excellent occasion to look back at the history of the credentials process, and the evolution to Board certification. This article will trace the major historical events in the development of the ADTA credentials process from it’s inception to the current day, and explore both the internal and external factors that moved this process forward. It will also examine our credentials with a focus on some of the issues raised within the current health care climate.

  • Judith S. Kestenberg’s Dance/Movement Therapy Legacy: Approaches with
           Pregnancy, Young Children, and Caregivers
    • Authors: Susan Loman
      Pages: 225 - 244
      Abstract: This article will present several dance/movement therapy (DMT) applications of the Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP), designed by Judith Kestenberg and colleagues. Starting with pregnancy and the Prenatal Project, and following children through age six with their caregivers, the article describes the author’s early DMT work at Judith Kestenberg’s Center for Parents and Children, and continues to the present. Kestenberg’s developmental phases from birth through age six are presented, along with issues concerning children and caregivers; also covered are examples of practical interventions. The KMP is used as a springboard for understanding the origins of aggression, along with theoretical underpinnings of Kestenberg’s research, and practical applications for both dance/movement therapists and caregivers.

  • The Moving Cycle: A Second Generation Dance/Movement Therapy Form
    • Authors: Christine Caldwell
      Pages: 245 - 258
      Abstract: In the early 1980s, Christine Caldwell began developing a form of dance/movement therapy (DMT) she named the Moving Cycle. Premised on the notion that movement principles themselves could form the theoretical base and clinical strategies of healing, she began teaching this form to students at Naropa University in the 1980s, where training continues to this day. This article introduces the history as well as the theory and practice of this second generation form of DMT, and compares it to traditional forms of DMT. The article also centralizes the Moving Cycle’s valuing of precise movement sequencing, movement continuums, social justice, and the mapping of biological processes onto psychological states.

  • Dance/Movement Therapy and Sensory Stimulation: A Holistic Approach to
           Dementia Care
    • Authors: Natasha Goldstein-Levitas
      Pages: 429 - 436
      Abstract: Nearly 135 million people worldwide will be afflicted with dementia by 2050 (Robinson et al., 2015). Dementia is a devastating and progressive illness that results in the loss of one’s sense of self and feelings such as frustration, depression, and anxiety. Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is a useful, non-pharmacologic method for the treatment of dementia, as this discipline enhances quality of life, may attenuate cognitive decline, and is cost-effective; DMT engages the sensory systems and stimulates physical, emotional, and cognitive functioning. This article affirms that sensory stimulation in DMT is a holistic, economical, and fruitful approach for dementia care.

  • American Dance Therapy Association Historical Timeline: 1966–2016
    • Authors: Christina Devereaux; Susan Kleinman; Grace Marie Mangino Johnson; Kelsey Witzling
      Abstract: This is the first published timeline to chronicle historical facts regarding the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA). The timeline begins in 1964 when early strategic discussions to start an association were held, including the formation of a steering committee during a meeting at Marian Chace’s apartment. The facts are reported from the ADTA’s official incorporation in 1966 through the publication of this article in 2016. In commemoration of the ADTA’s 50th anniversary, this compilation of both oral history and documented events into one timeline is intended to serve as a reference for future generations. We hope that others will continue to add to this work in progress as the association progresses into the next 50 years and beyond.

  • Reflections on Dance/Movement Therapy and Interpersonal Neurobiology: The
           First 50 Years
    • Authors: Cynthia Berrol
      Abstract: One of a collection of six scholarly essays solicited by this journal to celebrate the first half-century of the American Dance Therapy Association, this paper reflects on the author’s exposure to and analysis of interpersonal neurobiology in relation to the field of dance/movement therapy (DMT). The author cites a prior article of hers inspired by research conducted by Gallese and colleagues with macaque monkeys, which led to the identification of “mirror neurons.” Gallese showed that sets of subject macaques’ neurons in the brain were activated when simply witnessing others performing a movement, and activated in a fashion identical to that when they themselves performed the movement. In humans a parallel catalyst might be found in visual observation of motor actions, or facial expressions of emotions likewise motorically displayed—joy, disgust, fear, anger, and the like. The author reflects on how research regarding mirror neurons, neuroplasticity, empathy, and intersubjectivity has affected DMT theory, education, and practice. She examines attachment and attunement theories on infant and child development, which underscore profound interconnections with the mirror neurons in the brain. She argues that regardless of DMT’s evolution, the discipline has always been rooted in relationship, and is predicated on interpersonal, empathic interaction between analyst and analysand. What interpersonal neurobiology has accomplished is to reveal the neurological mechanisms within the brain that are activated during the interactive therapeutic process—the undergirding machinery driving how people operate. This knowledge equips dance/movement therapists to work with greater awareness and understanding of the entire process.

  • Social Media and Dance/Movement Therapy: Reciprocity, Collaboration, and
    • Authors: Lora Wilson Mau; Angie Giordano-Adams
      Abstract: Dawning at the onset of the twenty first century, social networking has emerged as a catalyst of global significance that, if embraced strategically, may fuel the growth of dance/movement therapy (DMT) in exponential ways. In the few years that the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) has utilized social media for public relations and advocacy purposes, both ADTA membership and the general public’s awareness of DMT have already increased markedly. Inherent within the social networking paradigm is the essential role of relationship and reciprocity. These tenets encourage a cross-promotion, not only of dance/movement therapists by dance/movement therapists but of all creative arts therapists by all creative arts therapists. Fully maximizing the growth potential for the field of DMT demands a shift from a twentieth century mindset of isolationism to the social media inspired, twenty first century paradigm of collaboration and mutual support among all creative arts therapists. Fully committing to this paradigm will produce greater awareness of DMT in the general public, a deeper understanding of DMT by allied professionals, an increased consumer demand for our services, a more diverse pool of dance/movement therapists, and a visibility worthy of a profession beginning its second half century.

  • The ADTA’s First Half-Century: Ma(r)king History with an Eye to the
    • Authors: David Alan Harris
      Abstract: The author, as co-editor of the American Journal of Dance Therapy, introduces six essays by a small group of experts, invited to share reflections on the social, political, economic, scientific, and cultural context for the development of the profession of dance/movement therapy (DMT) over the first half century of the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA). Through allusions to pivotal events in the United States circa 1966, this introductory editorial characterizes the U.S. zeitgeist around the year of the ADTA’s founding. Specific references are made to the signing of the Voting Rights Act, the establishment of Medicaid and Medicare, the founding of the National Organization for Women, as well as the violent targeting of civil rights marchers in Selma, Alabama, and the spontaneous launching of the modern LGBT rights movement with the Stonewall Rebellion in New York’s Greenwich Village. Commentary on the six essays to follow the editorial includes discussion of DMT as a female-dominated profession, which has apparently suffered the economic consequences of gender bias. Strategies for countering devaluation of the profession and building respect for it—including improving dance/movement therapists’ cultural competence, upgrading both quantitative and qualitative research, and fostering alliances between the ADTA and sister institutions—are likewise advanced.

  • Dance/Movement Therapy, Women’s Rights, and Feminism: The First 50
    • Authors: Christine Caldwell; Lucy Leighton
      Abstract: One of a collection of six scholarly essays solicited by this journal to celebrate the first half-century of the American Dance Therapy Association, this paper examines the roots of dance/movement therapy through the cultural lens of the women’s rights and feminist movements over the last 50 years. Despite DMT’s disruption of the patriarchal bias in counseling, and despite having displayed a richness of cultural discourse over the years, a historical analysis of publications in the field reveals a paucity of discourse around feminism and women’s rights, as well as lack of intersectionality. Much as the women’s rights and feminist movements can be criticized for their lack of intersectionality and exclusionary practices, DMT has arguably fallen into a similar pitfall. The authors suggest that moving forward into the next 50 years, the field of DMT may be especially equipped to contribute to discourses around activism, multiculturalism, and social justice through a body-based lens.

  • Dance/Movement Therapy Careers amid Changing Systems: The First 50 Years
    • Authors: Christine Hopkins
      Abstract: One of a collection of six scholarly essays solicited by this journal to celebrate the first half-century of the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA), this paper affords a brief historical overview of how both mental health systems changes in the United States and adaptive strategies undertaken by U.S. dance/movement therapists and the ADTA have affected the dance/movement therapy (DMT) profession during this period. Promoting DMT professionalism, identity, and opportunities continue to be challenges. Expanding the populations and settings served by dance/movement therapists has been the most effectively durable approach. A branding campaign to raise the profile of the ADTA’s “Registered” and “Board Certified” DMT credentials is proposed as a long-term and widely applicable strategy for boosting the profession’s future sustainability.

  • Dance/Movement Therapy and Developments in Empirical Research: The First
           50 Years
    • Authors: Robyn Flaum Cruz
      Abstract: One of a collection of six scholarly essays solicited by this journal to celebrate the first half-century of the American Dance Therapy Association, this paper describes the centrality of research to the profession since its inception. Using the works of Marian Chace, early conference proceedings, and some brief history about the development of psychotherapy and evidence-based practice as illustrations, this essay presents the historical affiliation between dance/movement therapy and research. The prescience of basic assumptions about dance/movement therapy conceptualized in the early days of the profession, which are now supported by newly emerging neurological and neuropsychological research, is discussed. Among the promising features of the profession noted, are the impressive growth of dance/movement therapy globally, and the fact that the embodied approach embedded in the work has kept the profession close to important body-mind parameters over time. These are argued to ensure its continued growth over the next 50 years. Finally, readers are reminded that engaging with research creates the foundation of improving practice to ultimately benefit clients.

  • East Asian Students’ Experiences of Learning Dance/Movement Therapy in
           the US: A Phenomenological Investigation
    • Authors: Kyung Soon Ko
      Abstract: This phenomenological study aims to explore the lived learning experiences of international East Asian dance/movement therapy (DMT) students who completed their DMT training in the United States (U.S.) and then returned to their home countries. The researcher sought to explore how participants experienced their Western DMT education. Six participants were recruited from four East Asian countries: Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan, and participated in individual interviews. The NVivo10 software program was used as a tool to ensure efficient organization. Peer debriefing and member checking were used in different phases of data analysis to enhance internal validity. Ultimately, data analysis revealed four themes and 15 categories. The four themes that emerged were (a) challenges in DMT training in the U.S.; (b) contrasts between classroom cultures; (c) aspects that helped participants to adjust in class; (d) DMT as a catalyst for personal and professional development and growth. Each theme gave rise to its own unique categories that emerged from the process of data analysis. The findings support previous studies on culturally competent teaching and differences in learning styles. The researcher hopes that this study will contribute to the creation of a meaningful and educational steppingstone between the East and West in the DMT field.

  • The Mind–Body Connection in Dance/Movement Therapy: Theory and
           Empirical Support
    • Authors: Jessica Acolin
      Abstract: Interest from varied academic disciplines regarding the mind–body connection has increased in recent decades. This interest has resulted in a proliferation of empirical research investigating the phenomenon. This growing body of research, coming from the cognitive and behavioral neurosciences and identified under the label of embodiment research, combined with the lively conversation between embodiment researchers, are of great importance to the field of dance/movement therapy (DMT). However, in order for DMT to participate effectively in the conversation, the field first needs a clarification of its own theory regarding the mind–body connection. This article distills a sub-section of existing DMT theory into a set of grounded descriptive statements, and summarizes existing empirical data from cognitive and behavioral neurosciences that substantiate the statements. A modified grounded theory method was used. Implications for future research direction are discussed.
