This training is for dance and movement teachers who want to include spiritual aspects in their teaching in order to include personal development and to focus on the authentic expression of their students through dance.

This training will enable you to teach dance in a way that focuses on the individual expression of movement and dance for your students. This process is extraordinarily empowering. You will learn all about the connection between the aspects of experience-body-psyche-expression and how to guide movement so that the energy between these aspects can flow. This will allow your students to develop their full and personal movement potential leading to authentic dance expression.

Please note that you will also need to reserve self-study time for the entire unit.
