In the last couple of years, dance or expression movement therapy is emerging as a viable career option leading to top colleges across the city to offer the course at both undergraduate and postgraduate diploma level.
Since the last couple of years, Artsphere, in academic collaboration with St. Mira’s College for Girls, is offering a PG Diploma in Dance Movement Therapy (DMT). It is a 650+ hours course spread over a year and has an internationally trained faculty, which conducts experiential sessions, webinars, online classes, personal therapy, supervision and group process work throughout the year along with guiding the students through a 100-hour internship. To be eligible for admission, an applicant should be a graduate in any subject. The course is open to 25 students per batch and the fee for the previous batch was Rs 1 lakh.
The Tata Institute of Social Sciences has also been offering a Diploma in Dance Movement Therapy since 2016 in association with Kolkata Sanved, an organisation which has worked in this field extensively. The 30-credit course run both in Mumbai and Kolkata has 300 hours of compulsory field work spread over three months and is open to any graduate.
While most DMT courses are for graduates, the Symbiosis Centre for Liberal Arts offers a four-credit elective in the undergraduate degree course on the subject.
