This communication/workshop presents the development process of an adapted dance intervention for people affected by a combination of neurological deficits resulting from a recent stroke (≤ 25 days). The intervention was part of a study conducted at the Villa Medica Rehabilitation Hospital in Montreal. Its objectives were to intensify – in a pleasant fashion – the rehabilitation of participating patients, and to contribute to their recovery by creating a connection between the multimodal nature of dance and the needs and recommendations of the multidisciplinary hospital neurology team. This workshop introduces categories of permeable movements that result from the aforementioned connection. These categories borrow elements from rehabilitation, dance and somatic education practices, in order to form an intervention content that's both relevant to, and coherent with, the therapeutic intention. The workshop, in so doing, aims to respond to current literature advocating for a better understanding of intervention contents – much of which is still not clearly formulated when it comes to intervention through dance. The workshop begins with a description of the methodology (patient medical information and questionnaire, discussion group, on-site observations and TIDieR checklists), followed by the introduction of different movement categories, a practical/experiential synthesis of developed content (in sitting and standing positions), and finishing with a short montage of audio-visual excerpts shot in the field to help further examine the content. The workshop concludes with a short question and answer period.
