Interested in learning more about the ACC Somatic Movement Education Training Program (SMED) Join program director Ellen Bartel and program coordinator Katherine Brady on Zoom for an hour-long info session with Q&A.
ACC’s Somatic Movement Education Training Program employs a dance-based approach in teaching health and wellness pedagogies through Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals, and an introduction to Body-Mind Centering.
This program is a one-year, 560-contact-hour curriculum that includes experiential, practical, and theoretical pedagogical methods for promoting body and mind integration, movement re-education, observation and analysis of movement, embodied anatomy, hands-on physical cuing, and neuromuscular re-patterning for oneself, and their students and/or clients.
Students will focus on the following themes:
  • Observe, describe, visualize, interpret, and document human movement.
  • Support the re-patterning of habitual movement choices for restoration, wellness, and self-care.
  • Explore approaches to movement education and group/community activities, dance, theater, and yoga.
  • Understanding of embodied anatomy to guide others through somatic mindfulness experiences.
  • Define ethical practices for working with diverse participant populations.
  • Practice body, mind, and environmental relationships employing verbal and non-verbal strategies
