Subject :  Dance Movement Therapy opportunities at Concordia University


I am a graduate student/ health professional/ professional etc. with a strong and long-time interest in an education and training in Dance Movement Therapy.   Discussions about a potential program at Concordia University have been ongoing for many years.  I am writing to express my interest in a program and the frustration of years of discussion with no concrete information for potential students (or professionals).


Can add : I attended the October 2022 international conference held in Montreal and am now part of  meetings of Canadians across the country (and DMTAC  members from across the world). In October of 2022 the room was full; there was enthusiasm and commitment to the field. There were also the many questions regarding developments at Concordia that have been referenced for years.


Please send information on the progress of the development of a Master’s program in Dance Movement Therapy as one of the modalities central to the Creative Arts Therapies. I am also interested in the opportunity to take related courses in the Department of Creative Arts Therapies (CATS) separate from or in complement to alternate route training. 


Thank you for your time and attention.  I look forward to information and to sharing ideas.
