Crossing Borders:

Dance/Movement Therapy Creating Change through Global Exchange

The annual national conference is a major avenue for sharing knowledge and promoting our growth and expertise as a professional community. Our conference theme reflects the ADTA’s continued focus on raising awareness and promoting inclusion as it lives and is expressed within our membership. This year inclusion adds the embracing of both our international membership and our connections to dance/movement therapists and their professional organizations around the world.

Though we had hoped to offer this year’s theme in Montreal in collaboration with our gracious Canadian co-hosts, we are grateful to be able to offer a virtual conference experience as an alternative. Though not a replacement for in-person embodied learning, the virtual conference offers the opportunity to learn from diverse experts in our profession from around the world. We sincerely hope you will join this virtual gathering of your colleagues in time and space, if not - this year - in place.

The Best of Both Worlds: Scheduled Plenaries and On Demand Learning

The Annual Conference Committee carefully deliberated the pros and cons of a variety of formats for delivering a virtual conference. Acknowledging that “ZOOM Fatigue” is a very real physical and mental challenge and that many of our members are on ZOOM all day for work, the Committee chose to limit the number of scheduled events each day to the events that historically have brought us together as one community: the conference plenaries; community rituals and celebrations; and, of course, our Saturday Night Dance.
