Our biggest resource at Open Floor International is our community. Meet the movement teachers from around the globe who are supporting our mission with their time, skills, and passion.
Our working members are organized in Circles, based on the principles of Dynamic Governance. While there are leaders, the power is in the group rather than any individual. This ensures that everybody has a sovereign voice in the management of the organization.
The Internal Communications subcircle produces our Working Members quarterly newsletter: Sawdust, Glitter & Glue – a thread in the giant web that connects us together.
Education is at the heart of all we do at Open Floor International. The Educational Programs Circle oversees and supervises content and delivery of all training for teachers and the public, provides supervision and supports for new trainers, and redesigns curriculum based on 360 feedback to ensure high quality programming. Their work is supported by several subcircles focusing on specific programs: Mentorship, Art in Motion, Therapy in Motion, Embodied Sexuality, Manual & Written Content, Online Learning, and Training Design.
The Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Circle is in development.
The Tech Circle develops and supports technology solutions, keeping all Working Members connected and supporting educational programs.
Helps spread awareness of our movement revolution and raise the visibility of Open Floor
International. The Marketing Circle informs, inspires and supports the teachers, movers, and
volunteers that make up our global community through our website, social media channels and email campaigns.
Bringing together decades of experience as leaders and trainers in the fields of conscious dance, embodiment and mindful movement, our founders created Open Floor International to further the development of movement as a healing practice.
Our Founding Members are movement teachers, mindfulness and embodiment experts from all over the globe. They have pooled their vast wealth of experience and knowledge, birthing a new movement practice that reflects the most current research in embodiment, science, the arts, education and mindfulness.
