Betsy Saccenti

Dancing isn’t always about learning to dance; sometimes it is about dancing to learn. Betsy Saccenti has been teaching developmentally appropriate dance and creative dance for 9 years. As a performer, she danced with PUSH Physical Theatre and Inlet Dance Theatre. She holds a Master of Arts in Dance Movement Therapy from Drexel University, which she uses to help others have opportunities to develop their strengths.

Dance/Movement therapy is a psychotherapy practice that is founded on the empirically supported premise that the body and mind are interconnected, and aims to further emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration. Groups often appear playful, but are facilitating a guided experience, in which children learn through experience.

Betsy enjoys enriching the lives of the participants in her Dance/Movement Therapy groups at The Center on Central.

Social Skills - Adolescent Creative and Social Development Group (ages 11-16)

Cost: $300 for 6 consecutive group meetings.

Creative dance and discussion provide the social support and expressive tools to cultivate positive coping, confidence, and self-expression. We will connect to bodies and life passions through the arts, and develop the insight needed to navigate difficult feelings and social experiences. We will learn to use the mind/body connection to discover what it is like to move (and dance!) to create inner calm.
