Credentials

There are two levels of credentialing for dance/movement therapists:

  • The Registered-Dance/Movement Therapist (R-DMT) represents attainment of a basic level of competence, signifying both the first level of entry into the profession and the individual's preparedness for employment as a dance/movement therapist within a clinical and/or educational setting. This requires 700 hours of internship.
  • The Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT) credential can be obtained after the R-DMT is awarded, with additional requirements and experience.  BC-DMT is the advanced level of dance/movement therapy practice, signifying both the second level of competence for the profession and the individual's preparedness to provide training and supervision in dance/movement therapy, as well as engage in private practice. This requires 3,640 hours of internship.

Either credentials are required in order to practice in US.  Besides, R-DMT and BC-DMT are also the important reference credentials considered by other countries in the world.  One example is ADMT (dance therapy association in UK) and ADTA registry: as there is reciprocity between the two, the differences in requirements will not impact the work opportunities for the dance therapists in each other's country.
