Student Supports Managers LaDonna Curry and Maria Torres joined Gaynor Hall on WGN-TV for a discussion on the dance and movement therapy they provide to students in the school setting. Both LaDonna and Maria are trained dance / movement therapists, and they use this expertise to help students build a mind-body connection.
According to LaDonna and Maria, dance and movement allow students to be present, express themselves, have fun, and connect with one other. Even adults can benefit from moving and dancing, particularly given the collective stress we all are feeling from the pandemic.
