Our World Needs Healing.
It Starts With You.

Our world is in a state of disconnect. Privilege, inequality, and growing polarization around fundamental values are splitting our societies and favoring division over inclusion. Our mission is to initiate a global conversation on the power and place for mindful movement and dance to affect social, emotional, physical, and planetary health.

We've Changed Lives in Over 30 Countries (and counting)

Open Floor Teachers are community-builders. Through our open source curriculum, we’ve trained hundreds of teachers on how to use mindful movement and dance in schools, workplaces, and community settings to affect positive change.

But we’ve only reached a fraction of the people who need these life-changing resources most. We have more work to do and we need your help to do it.

Will you join the movement?

We Train the Next Generation to Lead Through Movement.

Open Floor is Open Source. The curriculum is ever-expanding and available to all. Through our foundational and advanced training programs, we empower teachers across a wide variety of professions and backgrounds to use this work to change the lives of others in their communities.


The Ground Floor Lab

Take your movement practice to the next level with our flagship program. 

A foundation in the most up to date approaches to embodiment and mindful movement, our Ground Floor Lab is an intensive, experiential, five-day introduction to the Open Floor curriculum. You’ll come away with an understanding of the core teachings and practical skills to use them in your movement practice, your everyday life, workplace and communities.
