Capstone

For my Capstone Service Learning Project, I would like to incorporate my education in both Dance and Psychology by conducting a workshop of Dance/Movement Therapy. Dance and movement are ways to express one’s emotions without verbalization and find connection between the body and mind to enter a state of equilibrium. By researching different dance forms and techniques, I plan create a workshop to hold at multiple on-campus events, including Relay for Life, to provide the CI community an opportunity to find this connection. The workshops would not focus on the quality of the dancing, but on the depth of emotional and physical relationships, along with the idea that anyone can use these movement techniques as another form of expression and self-awareness. I hope to gain insight on how this type of a workshop can be presented at various events and discover how the experience varies within different people within the same community.
