Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Dance

Mission: The hancock center for dance/movement therapy, inc. Was created to promote the informed and effective use of dance/movement therapy in the midwest. Dance/movement therapy works with the whole person integrating movement, creative process, and verbal communication. It has the potential to access emotions and issues that may be inaccessible in verbal therapy, and is an effective treatment for people with psychological, social, developmental, neurological, and physical challenges.

Programs: The hancock center provides individual, group, and family dance/movement therapy sessions for adults, children, families, and people with disabilities. These sessions include self-care groups, mindfulness meditation and movement, creative dance, empowerment for women and teens, positive parenting, creative movement for people with developmental issues, alexander technique classes, and workshops for the general public.

school-based weekly small group dance/movement therapy sessions are offered for children and teens who have experienced trauma or other difficulties and who would not otherwise have access to mental health services. Prevention groups are provided in classrooms to reduce bullying, increase safety options, and empower students.
