Dance Movement and Choreography

In the advent of increasing awareness for alternative methods of therapeutic intervention, understanding how individuals heal through the mind/body connection is an increasing area of interest for clinicans, psychologists and dancers alike. Paige Swanson is a dance movement artist whose work speaks out through social justice issues surrounding violence and control in systematic oppression. She advocates on behalf of those who are voiceless through her work in the arts and seeks to spread more awareness into how indivduals can gain access to the mind/body connection to help heal and orient themselves into positions of personal power, autonomy and control. She is seeking to become a registered dance movement therapist in work with populations diagnosed with the following:

  • Ontological Treatment
  • Diabetes
  • OCD
  • Autism
  • Parkinsons
  • Sexual Assualt/ Violence
  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder
