The Dancing Brain
Dance movement therapy and it's Contributions to Neurocognitive health

In 2021 the EADMT symposium will be hosted in the Netherlands on October 2 and 3. It will take place in Maastricht, which is in the South of the Netherlands. Due to the C-19 regulations, it will be a 'hybrid' symposium; parts will take place with live participants and will be streamed online, parts will be purely online.

The festival 'Dutch Dance Days' (Nederlandse dansdagen) will play a big part in hosting the symposium and General Assembly. This is a big step in the acknowledgment of dance movement therapy in the Netherlands on the side of "dance".
