When is this day celebrated? June 13

What is this day? National Dance/Movement Therapy Advocacy Day was created to educate on the field of Dance/Movement Therapy, a niche form of psychotherapy that has been established since the 1950’s. It is a fantastic approach to mental health that focuses on the body, movement, and dance as a natural form of expression.

Who created this day? This day was founded by Erica Hornthal in 2019. 

How should this day be celebrated?

  • Research Dance/Movement Therapy to learn more about this practice. 
  • Attend the Dance Therapy Advocates Summit in June 2020. It will be honored by other dance therapists and students by creating free groups for all different populations and ages who use movement as a form of therapy.
