Dance therapy

Dance/movement therapy in USA/ Australia or dance movement psychotherapy in the UK is the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance to support intellectual and motor functions of the body. As a modality of the creative arts therapies, DMT looks at the correlation between movement and emotion; the American Dance Therapy Association was founded in 1966 as an organization to support the emerging profession of dance/movement therapy and is the only U. S. organization dedicated to the profession of dance/movement therapy. Dance has been used therapeutically for thousands of years, it has been used as a healing ritual in the influence of fertility, birth and death since early human history. Over the period from 1840 to 1930, a new philosophy of dance developed in Europe and the United States, defined by the idea that movement could have an effect on the mover vis-a-vis that dance was not an expressive art. There is a general opinion that Dance/movement as active imagination was originated by Jung in 1916, developed in the 1960s by dance therapy pioneer Mary Whitehouse.

Tina Keller-Jenny and other therapists started practicing the therapy in 1940. The actual establishment of dance as a therapy and as a profession occurred in the 1950s, beginning with future American Dance Therapy Association founder Marian Chace. Marian Chace spearheaded the movement of dance in the medical community as a form of therapy, she is considered the principal founder of. In 1942, through her work, dance was first introduced to western medicine. Chace was a dancer and performer. After opening her own dance school in Washington, D. C. Chace began to realize the effects movement had on her students; the reported feelings of wellbeing from her students began to attract the attention of the medical community, some local doctors began sending patients to her classes. She was soon asked to work at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, D. C. once psychiatrists too realized the benefits their patients were receiving from attending Chace’s dance classes. In 1966 Chace became the first president of the American Dance Therapy Association, an organization which she and several other DMT pioneers founded.

According to the ADTA, dance is "the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process which furthers the emotional, social and physical integration of the individual." The second wave of Dance Movement Therapy came around the 1970s to the 1980s and it sparked much interest from American therapists. During this time, therapists began to experiment with the psychotherapeutic applications of dance and movement; as a result of the therapists' experiments, DMT was categorized as a form of psychotherapy. It was from this second wave; the theory of DMT is based upon the belief that body and mind interact. Both conscious and unconscious movement of the person, based on the dualist mind body premise, affects total functioning, reflects the individual’s personality. Therefore, the therapist-client relationship is based on non-verbal cues such as body language. Movement is believed to have a symbolic function and as such can aid in understanding the self. Movement improvisation allows the client to experiment with new ways of being and DMT provides a manner or channel in which the client can consciously understand early relationships with negative stimuli through non-verbal mediation by the therapist.

Through the unity of the body and spirit, DMT provides a sense of wholeness to all individuals. The body refers to the "discharging of energy through muscular-skeletal responses to stimuli received by the brain." The mind refers to "mental activities...such as memory, perception, evaluation and decision making." The spirit refers to the "subjectively experienced state of feeling in engaging in or empathically observing dancing."Dance therapy works to improve the social skills, as well as relational dynamics among the clients that choose to participate in it to better improve their quality of life. Through this form of therapy clients will gain a deeper sense of self-awareness through a meditative process that involves movement and realization of one's body. Dance therapy is different from other forms of rehabilitative treatments because it allows creative expression and is more holistic, meaning it treats the full person: mind and spirit. DMT/P methodology is heterogenous and practitioners draw on a variety of psychotherapeutic and kinetic principles.

Most trainings in Dance Therapy will have an established theoretical base which they work from – for example Psychodynamic theory, Humanistic psychology, Integrative therapy, Cognitive behavioral therapy, Existential therapy etc. Depending on the approach or combinations of approaches practitioners work from different processes and aims will be worked towards. Additionally to the psychotherapeutic basis of their work, different approaches to movement and dance may be employed. Whilst some dance therapists work with codified dance movement and styles – such as ballet, folk dance, contemporary dance etc. – most work within a kinetic framework of creative and expressive movement practices with a significant element of structured improvisation. Requirements on mosts DMT/P graduate programmes are Movement Analysis and Profiling, experiential anatomy, human development and Developmental psychology, Authentic Movement and supplementary body-mind integration practices, such as Body-Mind Centering®, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Feldenkrais Method or Alexander Technique.

Additionally since a variety of populations may be encountered in DMT/P

Sleepy Lagoon murder

The "Sleepy Lagoon murder" was the name that Los Angeles newspapers used to describe the death of José Gallardo Díaz, discovered unconscious and dying on a road near a swimming hole in Commerce, California, on the morning of August 2, 1942. Díaz was taken by ambulance to Los Angeles County General Hospital, where he died shortly afterwards without regaining consciousness; the hospital's autopsy showed that he was inebriated from a party the previous night and had a fracture at the base of his skull. This might have been caused by an automobile accident; the cause of his death remains a mystery to this day. However, the Los Angeles Police Department was quick to arrest 17 Mexican-American youths as suspects. Despite insufficient evidence, the young men were held in prison, without bail, on charges of murder; the trial ended on January 1943, under the supervision of Judge Charles W. Fricke. 12 of the defendants were convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to serve time in San Quentin Prison.

The defendants were: Jack Melendez, Victor Thompson, Angel Padilla, John Y. Matuz, Ysmael Parra, Henry Leyva, Gus Zamora, Manuel Reyes, Robert Telles, Manuel Delgado, Jose Ruiz, Henry Ynostroza; the rest of the suspects were charged with lesser offenses and incarcerated in the Los Angeles County Jail. The convictions were reversed on appeal in 1944; the case is considered a precursor to the Zoot Suit Riots of 1943. Sleepy Lagoon was a reservoir beside the Los Angeles River, frequented by Mexican-Americans, its name came from the popular song "Sleepy Lagoon" recorded in 1942 by big-band leader and trumpeter Harry James. The reservoir was located near the city of Maywood at what is now 5400 Lindbergh Lane, in Bell, California; the current address has been given as 5500 Slauson Avenue. In February 1942, the U. S. government interned Japanese Americans from the West Coast, after classifying them as security threats following the United States entry into World War II. It is now recognized that racial discrimination on the part of white California residents and officials contributed to this injustice.

As society mobilized for war, thousands of Mexican citizens under the Bracero program arrived to Los Angeles for agricultural jobs, as did hundreds of thousands of black southerners during the Second Great Migration to the city for defense-related jobs such as munitions factories and shipyards. The rapid influx of laborers from Mexico and defense workers of ethnic backgrounds from all across the country into Los Angeles heightened racial tensions in the city. A grand jury, headed by E. Duran Ayres, was appointed by the Los Angeles City Council to investigate an alleged "Mexican crime wave"; the morning of August 2, 1942, José Gallardo Díaz was found unconscious and died in the hospital. The autopsy revealed that Díaz was intoxicated and had blunt head trauma, but they could not determine a cause of death. Despite the unclear cause of death, 20-year-old Henry Leyvas and 24 members of what the media termed "the 38th Street gang" were arrested for murdering Díaz, they suspected. In response to the alleged murder, the media began a campaign calling for action against "zoot suiters".

On August 10, police conducted a roundup of 600 Latinos who were charged with suspicion of assault, armed robbery, related offenses. The resulting criminal trial is now viewed as lacking in the fundamental requirements of due process. Seventeen Latino youths were placed on trial; the courtroom was small and, during the trial, the defendants were not allowed to sit near, or to communicate with, their attorneys. None of those charged were permitted to change their clothes during the trial by order of Judge Fricke at the request of the district attorney on the grounds that the jury should see the defendants in the zoot suits that were "obviously" worn only by "hoodlums"; every time a name was mentioned by a witness or the district attorney, regardless of how damning the statement was, the named defendant was required to stand up. Judge Fricke permitted the chief of the Foreign Relations Bureau of the Los Angeles sheriff's office, E. Duran Ayres, to testify as an "expert witness" that Mexicans as a community had a "blood-thirst" and a "biological predisposition" to crime and killing, citing the culture of human sacrifice practiced by their Aztec ancestors.

The Sleepy Lagoon Defense Committee was a community organization made up of Los Angeles community members and activists who came together to support the defendants. The SLDC was known as The Citizens' Committee for the Defense of Mexican-American Youth; the committee was labeled a Communist front organization by the California state legislature's Joint Fact-Finding Committee on Un-European American Activities headed by Jack Tenney. Actor Anthony Quinn writes that he began raising money for the defense after his mother urged him to "remember the eggs" they had been given by a mother of one of the accused defendants during a time of poverty, he writes of enlisting the help of Orson Welles and Eleanor Roosevelt, being branded a communist as a result costing him his career. Some SLDC members included: Alice McGrath, Josefina Fierro de Bright, Josefa Fierro, Maria Alvez, Luisa Moreno, Dorothy Healey, LaRue McCormick, Lupe Leyvas, Henry Leyvas, Doc Johnson, Frank Lopez, Bert Corona, Gray Bemis; the SLDC's mission was to mount a civil rights crusade so that these 12 Mexican-American defendants could have an unbiased trial.

The SLDC utilized their contacts with influential community members to promote their cause and for fund-raising purp
