Career

Dance/movement therapists work in a variety of settings including nursing homes, schools, psychiatric, rehabilitation and medical facilities, drug treatment centers, counseling and crisis centers, and wellness and alternative health care centers.

Earnings vary depending on credentials, experience, skills, job duties, employer, hours, and geographic location.  Average earnings for dance/movement therapists are generally higher because entry into the profession requires a higher level of education.  In 2004, the average earnings of dance/movement therapists generally ranged closer to $40,000 - $50,000 a year, with some earning $60,000 - $80,000 a year or more.

Dance/movement therapy is a small but growing field.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment for dance/movement therapists will grow faster than the average.  Employment is expected to increase 15% from 2008 to 2018, faster than the average for all occupations.  Job growth will stem from the therapy needs of the aging population.  Employment growth in schools will result from the expansion of the school-age population and the federally funded extension of services for disabled students.
