PROJECT GOAL
   Working on last year's project "What the Brain Knows About Dance" we learned a lot about the role of brain in dancing. Dance has been following a man since the beginning, and in his early days, dance was a motor reaction to certain emotions. Today, dance has a recreational, pedagogic, stage and therapeutic function. Dance therapy is based on the idea that the body and mind are inseparable, and the application of dance and movement as a creative process, and its goal is to integrate the emotional, cognitive, social and physical characteristics of each individual. Thus, changes in movements will affect the overall status of a person. Dance therapy can be used to treat severe difficulties and illnesses such as: deafness and hearing loss, blindness and weakness, autism, mental retardation, disability acceptance and many other difficulties and illnesses. This therapeutic role of dance in the prevention and treatment of some diseases is the theme of our project this year.

THE PROJECT
GOAL
   With this project, we want to find out what is the "power" of dancing in the therapy of certain diseases and which are diseases that can be prevented and / or treated with dance and movement.

Work concept and methodological procedures
   We will combine our synergies, meet and exchange our knowledge and experience before and after processing professional literature, hear professional lectures on movement and dance therapy, and visit the SUVAG Polyclinic where the movement is used in rehabilitation and work with children who have hearing problems and speech. We will also visit the Waldorf School where students have the Euritni subject. Euthythmias is a performing art and a therapeutic method, whereby certain exercises are performed in accordance with the illness and prescribed medical treatment.
   After expert lectures, we will summarize and discuss which states and illnesses can be prescribed for dance and movement therapy, who can prescribe it, and who apply for treatment. During the project work, we will organize exchange of students and mentors of collaborative schools and continuous exchange of information through social networks and e-mail.
   Through the implementation of the project, we aim to develop the team work of students, to encourage autonomy in the search for professional and scientific literature, to encourage critical thinking and creativity, and to positive communication, mutual respect of ideas and project implementation proposals.

Second student exchange in project "Dance and Movement Therapy"
(November 15, 2019)



   The second students exchange in the project "Dance and Movement Therapy" took place on November 15, 2019. The exchange was attended by students of High School Čakovec Alen Hajdarović and David Baranašić, School of Contemporary Dance Ana Maletić Zagreb Damian Vereš and Karla Horvat, Aviation Technical School Rudolf Perešin  Zagreb David Buntak, Medical School Šibenik Petra Rajić and Kristina Kunčić and High School Koprivnica Victoria Savić, Tea Barčanec and Ana Marija Friščić.

   We participated in the Move to Speech workshop at Suvag Clinic. The basis of the workshop is to encourage speech and language development through movement and dance.
   Professor Diana Mery Sarajlija introduced us to the Polyclinic's mode of operation, introduced us to the verbotonal method used in the rehabilitation of hearing and speech impaired children, and mentioned the academician Petar Guberina as the founder of the Polyclinic itself. We practically participated in exercises and games that seek to raise awareness of the importance of spatial relationships and the influence of dance movement on the psychological state of an individual, and found that non-verbal communication (movement) is important in understanding verbal. We think that the workshop is very educational and interesting, it encourages children but also adults to participate, it is conducted in a relaxed atmosphere and helps us to express ourselves more easily and safely in everyday life.

   After an instructive lecture and workshop, we headed to the Ana Maletić School of Contemporary Dance to exchange ideas and share further tasks.

First student exchange in project "Dance and Movement Therapy"
(October 3, 2019)



   On Thursday, October 3, 2019 students of High School Čakovec Alen Hajdarović and David Baranašić, School of Contemporary Dance Ana Maletić Zagreb Damian Vereš and Karla Horvat, Aviation Technical School Rudolf Perešin Zagreb David Buntak and High School Koprivnica Victoria Savić, Tea Barčanec and Ana Marija Friščić, who is also the project leader entitled "Dance and Movement Therapy" visited the Center for Dance and Movement Therapy "Terpsichore" in Zagreb.
   Vedrana Kurjan Manestar prof. educator, Gestalt psychotherapist and arts psychotherapist by movement and dance kindly welcomed us into her space where she performs dance therapies
.

   At the beginning of the meeting, she explained to us what dance therapy is and how it is performed. When we briefly heard the theoretical part, we soon went to a practical one where we all met in a fun way using the game. Then we added a bit of imagination and creativity to it, so everyone had to do some movement with their own name.
    In the end, each of us had our own movement and with the help of music, we performed an interesting "choreography" together and got to know each other and have a good time.
 
    We are sorry that our associates from the Medical School Šibenik could not be with us. Vedrana showed us a few more exercises and brought us closer to the fact that the movement we perform at some point can significantly affect our mood.

   In the end, when it all came together, we had an interesting and fun lecture and get-together in which we learned a lot and we thank again for Vedrana’s hospitality.
   After the workshop, we went for a constructive coffee where we exchanged impressions and tasks for the next exchange.
