Kadanst uses dance and movement in a therapeutic way, both for individual guidance as well as for parent and child together. How you move, alone or together with someone else, tells a lot about how you see life. Kadanst invites you to explore this together. Dancing and moving will make you feel better and more relaxed.
For this form of therapy, you don’t have to be good at dancing. I invite you to move to the music, but it is also possible without music. You can dance for yourself, play games and dance with a ball, a ribbon or something else. Sometimes you will decide what you want to do, and sometimes, we think of something together.
At Kadanst it is also possible to process a shocking or traumatic event trough EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). EMDR is based on the natural processing mechanism in our brains that may be blocked. EMDR can also be used to treat anxieties.

Child or teenager
An invitation for you, as child or teenager (3 to approximatly 16 years old)
Sometimes, as a child or teenager, you come across something in life that you find difficult and of which you don’t know how to process it. “That can be different!” you think, “But how?”
We are going to find out together. Through dancing and movement you will be more comfortable in your own body and feel more relaxed. This gives you space to look at what suits you and what you need. Sometimes, it’s also nice to give words to what is bothering you at that moment. Kadanst has a place where you feel safe to practice and try situations.

Parents or caretaker, together with your child
At a parent-child guidance you come to Kadanst as father, mother or caretaker together with your child(ren). Through playing, dancing and moving we improve the relationship between you and your child.
Together with your child, you discover how you communicate with your child with words (verbal) and with your attitude, movement and appearance (non-verbal), how your child does this with you and how you can do this in a clearpositive way. You get guidance in what your child is showing you non-verbally and will realize what they mean. Your child will also be guided ithis. Because of this you will be able to respond better to your child’s needs. Kadanst also helps to set clear boundaries, to get the feeling that you as a parent can handle the upbringing better and will be able to see it as a challenge.
If you want to:
- Feel more reliable with your child
- Restore the contact with your child
- Learn to decipher what your child wants to tell you in peace and with space
- Be in charge as a parent again
The purpose of Kadanst is to teach children to remain standing in the current society. How they can discover their own power and use it in daily situations and environment. Parents and caretakers learn to make a connection with their child(ren) in an empathic, restricted way, connected to what their child needs at that moment.
