    INQUIRY ABOUT THE SATURDAY NIGHT BANQUET & DANCE

    American Dance Therapy Association 53nd Annual Conference

    October 11-14, 2018

    Salt Lake City, Utah 

    What do you think about promoting multicultural diversity in our community through the annual dance event at the ADTA conference?

    What are the many pathways to explore? Just noticing that over the past few years, the music proposed during the party came from a specific cultural tradition (mostly American folk and pop, Motown, etc ...). Is there a chance to expand that? 

    I would love to send this message directly to the conference organizers. Please, let me know if you know whom I should reach out to. Thanks!

    You can write me at <fontanesi.cecilia@gmail.com>

    Request from ADTA Community!

    My name is Cara Gallo-Jermyn, I am a dance/movement therapist and LCAT, in NYC. This winter I had the honour and pleasure to participate alongside fellow CAT's, including ADTA member Dr. Meg Chang, in a Critical Pedagogies in the Creative Arts Therapies Think Tank hosted by drama therapists, Dr. Nisha Sajnani and Maria Hodermarska at the NYU Drama Therapy Graduate program.

    Our second convening, Critical Pedagogy in the Arts Therapies: Restoring and Re-Storying the Disciplines, will take place this September 14-15, 2018 in Chicago. We are hosted by Dr. Savneet Talwar and Leah Gipson, art therapists at the Art Institute of Chicago (SIAC) Graduate program.

    I, along with Drama Therapist Elizabeth McAdams, will be hosting a panel discussion titled ' White Identifying Creative Arts Therapists: Making a Commitment to Anti Oppressive Approaches'. The panel will bring together CAT's in a discussion on how white identifying CAT's are making the necessary commitment to anti-oppressive approaches and to the dismantling of white supremacy in their work as; clinicians, researchers, educators and supervisors.

    Elizabeth and I are presently in search of white identifying DMT's to participate in this panel. 
    If you are interested in participating as a discussant, or know of a DMT who might be interested please send an email inquiry along to me at: embodiedpsychotherapy@gmail.com

    As Dance/Movement Therapists we serve populations which have lost their voice or who have not yet found their voice. We are their advocates…we are their voice. They need us to rise up, to organize, and to create a movement of education and advocacy. 


    My intention is to create a momentum of passionate voices to educate our legislators on the importance of Dance/Movement Therapy for the health and wellbeing of those who do not have a voice: our children, our elders, our veterans, our disabled, our abused, and our mentally ill.


    This year we have so many opportunities to be that voice. I am asking each and everyone to join with me in my intention, to make this vision become a reality.


    March 7-8th is Arts Advocacy Day in Washington DC. Please join us as we begin to create this amazing momentum of moving Dance/Movement Therapy to the steps of Capital Hill. 


    Take a few minutes to check out Arts Advocacy Day at:

    Arts Advocacy Day


    Let’s see how many Dance/Movement Therapists’ powerful voices we can gather to educate our legislators during Arts Advocacy Day.


    If you can not join us for the full two day event, join us at the 29th Annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy. You can get one free ticket to the lecture on March 7th, 7:30 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Simply go to The 29th Annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy to register for your free ticket.


    Let me know if your voice will be in Washington DC March 7-8.


    Thanks,
