Ground Floor Lab is a five-day, in-depth tour of Open Floor movement practice. Two of our most seasoned teachers team up to immerse students in our dance curriculum. You’ll come away with an understanding of the core teachings and the skills to use them in your life, both on and off the dance floor.
This program attracts a diverse, international community of like-minded dancers who are interested in bringing embodied movement into their work. Ground Floor Labs are held regularly all over the world.
Attending a Ground Floor Lab is a prerequisite for anyone interested in training with Open Floor.
We’ll explore the Open Floor curriculum and values, and provide a week of engagement with other seasoned colleagues.
This is also open to people with extensive movement experience who are interested in future teacher training in Open Floor Movement Practice.
Feedback from our students:
“This was the richest workshop I ever attended. A perfect balance of form and depth. A great multi-dimensional movement cycle”
“I felt like I could really explore emotions, relations, without collapsing into them. It was a really good clue for teaching : you can explore your sensations on the dance floor, and welcome them without getting lost, with a kind of step back position”.
“My heart opened, I could soften and, at the same time, take responsibility for where I am and where I want to go. So I feel clear and a part of something bigger than me at the same time.”
