The Alternate Route training program offers classes in dance therapy approved by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) and has been created with the 92nd Street Y Harknesss Centre. It is designed for dancers and health professionals who want to obtain the professional accreditation of Registered Dance/Movement Therapist, by the ADTA.
A unique program in Canada, the Alternate Route consists of 270 hours of classes, taught by American dance therapists who are recognized internationally as pioneers in the field. It is important to note that completing the Alternate Route won’t result immediately in the certification. Together with other criteria, this program allows to replace a master’s in dance therapy, not yet available in Canada.
