FAQ – Dance Therapy

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) by clients

Q: How long is each session, and how much does it cost?

A: A session lasts for 1 hour, with a cost of R850 per session. (not covered by medical aid at this stage)

Q: Do I need to have any dance experience?

A: No, dance experience is not necessary. Dance Therapy is suitable for everyone.

Q: What do I wear?

A: Gym clothes, with socks, would probably be most comfortable. You can leave your leotard and tights at home. Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water along!

Q: How many sessions will I need, and how long does it take to work?

A: A difference could be felt after the first session. The number of sessions you have and how often you have them will be discussed in the first session.

Q: Is there an age limit?

A: Dance Therapy can help people of all ages, however, I predominantly work with children (from 5 years old), teenagers and adults.

Q: What issues can you work on in Dance Therapy?

A: Anything that you feel deeply about. The connection between the mind, body and emotions allows for issues to be processed and perspectives to be shifted through the experience of movement.

Q: Is it for both men and women?

A: Yes. The sessions are individualised and can cater for boys and girls, men and women.

Q: Which style of dance is used?

A: A combination of ballet, modern and contemporary influences are typically used; however, the movement style is adjusted to suit each individual. Making use of choreographed dance, rather than free movement, offers a comfortable structure so the focus can remain on the emotional issue in question. If free movement is specifically required, that can also be used in the session.

Q: Where are sessions held?

A: Sessions are held in a professional studio in Bergvliet, Cape Town. Alternatively, I can come to your home if you have a private space in which we can hold the session. Confidentiality is key!
