Over the past 4 years, Open Floor International has evolved from a dream nurtured by a handful of passionate innovators to a reality firmly rooted in community. In this time, we have trained over 200 new teachers from 27 countries and introduced Open Floor movement practice to thousands of dancers around the globe.
