"ALTERNATE ROUTE" PROGRAM
The NYC 92Y Harkness Dance Center’s “Alternate Route” training program will be offered in Montreal by Les Grands Ballets’ National Centre for Dance Therapy in the fall of 2013. This program, developed by Dr. Miriam Roskin Berger and the Harkness DMT Faculty, extends over 405 hours, comprising three intensive sessions of three weeks each. This course is recognized by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) as an academic prerequisite for obtaining R-DMT (Registered Dance/Movement Therapist) accreditation. TRAINING IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH The goal of the National Centre for Dance Therapy is to build a faculty that will be able to offer the full training program in French and English, beginning with its second group of students. For the first group of students starting in July 2014, however, classes will be taught in either English or French, depending on the teachers giving the courses. These teachers are part of the NYC 92Y Harkness Dance Center’s academic staff, and come from various countries in Europe and North America. Students will have the option of submitting their assignments in French or English. PREREQUISITES FOR THE “ALTERNATE ROUTE” PROGRAM Priority will be given to candidates who hold a Masters degree or who are enrolled in a Masters program. This requirement is to ensure that students taking the “Alternate Route” training will subsequently be able to meet the ADTA criteria for R-DMT accreditation.
