In the summer of 2011 Britta Koetting and Sandra Sneiderman were inspired by their work in the expressive arts therapy program at Lesley University to create a new organization which could inspire and heal others through creativity. Origin Movement is a nationally recognised 501c3 non-profit with a head quarters in the State of Maine. We also do work in California, Massachusetts, and Washington.
Origin Movement stands for empowering individuals and families through movement and creative arts. Our philosophy follows the humanistic perspective where everyone has an inherent ability to realize their fullest potential and to feel complete. Through creative self-expression, integrating body, mind, and spirit, one will access their original potential. We use dance/ movement, drama, art and music in order to evoke the body's knowledge. Thinking is not separate from feeling or from action. Since ancient times, dance/ movement has been the universal language, and it continues to reach across all barriers.
