Post from DMT student coordinator Farah Fancy

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year! I'm sending this message to the group

My name is Farah Fancy, a long time alternative route dmt student.

I currently work in Montreal with immigrant teens and adults using creative arts
therapies techniques to dialogue about mainly topics related to gender equality,
conjugal violence prevention, confidence building and cross cultural integration.

I co-run an afro cuban dance school to teach about afro cuban dance, movement and
culture. This has also turned into a small company that uses dance performance to
open discussion related to second generation immigrants bridging the gap between
living as a "Canadian" and adhering to the religion, values and morals of their

I was on the organizing committee of the AATQ conference "Full Circle in/of art
therapies". We continue to plan follow-up workshops for this upcoming year.

Lastly I am on the CATS week planning committee. If any of you are interested in
participating or have ideas of what would be a good way to promote dance movement
therapy in the city. Please do not hesitate to contact me. farahfancy@yahoo.ca

    Dear Farah,
    it was pleased to meet you at Creative Arts Therapies Week 2011. Hope, the formation of the Dance/movement therapy Association of Quebec will give a lot of opportunities to have master-classes and educational classes in DMT in Montreal.
    As I understand, at this blog I can only comment your posts? So, may be it will be good if you'll post some new topic to precise questions for discussion, or, for example, to share you fillings/experience after attendance the DMT-classes.
    Thanks for your job,
