About

Mr. Dennis Harvey has created Bee In Motion, a mobile movement therapy workshop, as a means for students and young adults of all abilities to explore self-expression and non-verbal communications through movement and music.

Mr. Harvey facilitates a forty-five minute workshop that incorporates music, singing, instrument playing and parachute work into a cohesive series of therapeutic exercises that provide sensory stimulation and social inclusion for up to twenty participants.

Based on the understanding that the body, mind and spirit are interrelated, movement therapy is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration of the individual. At all times, Mr. Harvey strives to create an atmosphere of mutual respect and learning regardless of ability. He has created Bee In Motion as a vehicle to encourage self-discovery in others and to promote the expression of inner feelings through music and movement.

"In my opinion, this program is the best one my students participate in and has had the most long lasting effect on them of all the specials that they attend."

"I think it is a credit to our school system, that a young man who was once a student of our 230 day program, now provides services to the same population."
