The National Centre for Dance Therapy is honoured to welcome Dr. Suzi Tortora in Montreal for a new workshop on dance therapy with babies and young children, dedicated towards dance therapists, dance and health professionals, parents and all those who are interested in using dance therapy with this population. 

Become aware of the different ways young children communicate, learn and express themselves, through their movements and their senses. Learn skills that will prove useful to all the professionals and parents involved with young children, with or without special needs. Dr. Suzi Tortora will present her dance therapy program Ways of Seeing, which explores the non-verbal clues of babies and young children and proposes activities favouring the growing attachment relationship and the social, emotional and cognitive development of the baby. Dedicated to parents, educators and professionals, these activities can be used with families and groups and in therapeutic, hospital and preventative contexts, as well as for dyadic and individuals care.
