DMT aims at awakening functional pleasure to arrive at the development of an adequate body image, through the improvement of the spatio - temporal organization, the development of the differentiated and channeled expression of affects, the improvement of impulse control, the structuring of the psycho-bodily and relational boundary.

The work focuses on spontaneous, structured, individual, couple and collective movement often with the use of music and materials.
