Founder/ Director of Creative Steps
Registered Dance Movement Therapist.
My name is Fiona Wood I have been a professional dancer for over twenty years working from classical ballet to West End musicals. After becoming a mother, I grew fascinated with child development and the power of nonverbal communication I discovered how the use of movement, signs and actions helped to elevate some of the frustrations of a toddler and child's experience. This led me to use my skills as a professional dancer and re-train in Dance Movement Psychotherapy to which I obtained a Master's degree.
During my training, I discovered that working with body and non-verbal communication in an imaginative and creative way can help bridge the gap between feelings and movement. Movement and dance can help enhance students abilities, improve communication, autonomy and sociability so that they become active individuals in their learning process. It can also be extremely beneficial to children with emotional or behavioural problems when it blocks the flow of energy and inhibits their potential abilities as learners.
I am CRB accredited, I am a registered member of the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy, UK. I am now introducing a new service 'Creative Steps' a new creative dance movement service that offers children values of creativity, honesty, resilience, independence and supportiveness. I am happy to offer your free trial class, so you can experience how it works. Please contact me for more information or to make a booking. There are many potential and possibilities creative dance could offer.
'Creative Steps' can be practised as a group and also with individuals in health, education, social services and community settings and is accessible for everyone regardless of age, gender, culture or physical ability.
