The Dance Movement Therapy is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) as the psychotherapeutic use of movement within a process that pursues the psychophysical (body-mind) integration of the individual. It is characterized by the use it makes of the medium and artistic process (in this case dance and movement) to help solve the emotional or psychological conflicts of people.
The Dance Movement Therapy is based on:
• Research on non-verbal communication.
• The psychology of human development.
• The different systems of motion analysis.
“The use of dance and movement as a therapeutic tool is rooted in the idea that the body and mind are inseparable. A basic premise is to consider that body movement reflects internal emotional states and that change in the range of possibilities of movement involves psychological changes promoting health and development. It enables both those who are healthy and emotionally and / or mentally disturbed or incapacitated to recover a sense of totality by experiencing psychophysical integration.” (Levy, 1992).
Carlos has worked with different types of Special Needs (Autism, Down Syndrome & Cerebral Palsy), Toodlers and Families in an Educational environment.

“Carlos is an incredible yoga teacher. Super attentive, patient and caring, he always made me feel comfortable in class and provided with me feedback and advice in my yoga practice. I’m only sad that I cannot continue practicing with him!”
“Carlos is a responsible, sensitive and extremely creative person who studies hard and has achieved very high marks in our training. He is well integrated amongst his fellow peers and a much appreciated for his loyalty, calmness and high communication skills. Carlos is an excellent mover with a large experience in dance and movement and has been one of the few students who immediately got offered a job out of his clinical placement in Madrid, a testimony of his excellent skills as a mover, therapist and educator.”

“Carlos has always shown exceptional qualities working with children, it is worth to point out his affectivity, active listening skills involving the individual needs of every child and proved knowledge of a wide range of resources to work with emotions and movement in this age range. I would also like to highlight his qualities regarding interpersonal relationships, both when dealing with families and as a part of a team. He always shows a kind and respectful attitude.”

“I worked with Carlos Campillo in a choreographic project with a social character, the project RIZOMA where Carlos showed his professional skills at all times. Carlos is a great co-worker and team component because of his ability to transmit the others different movement qualities into a very deep level.
I rely on his presence in places, spaces, moments … where movement, choreography and interpretation are the main engine of the action.”
