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.
From the trainers – Why we love to teach Ground Floor Labs :
Lucie Nerot, Founding Member, Libido Teacher, Art in Motion Teacher. “In a previous life, I was in academia and I was a teacher. And then I started diving deeper and deeper into the dance, into the exploration of consciousness, energy, art, symbols. Movement became my world. What I love about teaching the Ground Floor Lab is that both of these parts of myself can weave themselves into a passionate offering for all of you who are interested in teaching. I love that bridge between experiencing a process and finding out how it was designed. I love taking you there. What I also love is having a group of passionate explorers, with a capacity to move what they feel, to connect, to dance on the edge. So we get to explore the realm of emotions, the realm of the mind, the realm of the soul, fully embodied. Can wait to see you there! ”
Stacey Butcher, Open Floor Teacher, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. “I love teaching the Ground Floor Lab because we get to dive into understanding the Open Floor curriculum in a deeper way, giving a “peak behind the curtain” to talk about why we teach what we teach. It’s incredible to facilitate a room of experienced movers who are so curious and excited about the possibility of following the teacher training path.”
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.”
