Saša Starovojtov, aikido teacher 5th Dan and entrepreneur / Slovenia
"Program gave me tools that can be used in a number of different professions as well as in personal and social relations. I feel clearer in my life direction and my perspective has expanded in terms of possibilities for my future."
Bridget McLemore; dancer and yoga teacher / USA
"Teacher training exceeded my expectations. Ficho exercises allowed me to understand improvisation better, so I can now easily to teach better. Thank you Goran for awakening my lost inner child!"
Barbara Guipponi; dance teacher & dancer / Italy
"Dance Alchemy is a journey into your soul and also with other souls. Goran can really hold the space and direct the energy so that the group can create easily and effective. Not all the facilitators have this ability."
Gamze Leela; yoga teacher, spiritual healer, retreat leader / UK
"After finishing the Dance Alchemy Teacher Training, I’m now able to independently pursue my path as a facilitator and provide a very expansive, unique, and authentic practice for my students & clients. Goran has a very specific approach as a guide: he’s a hypersensitive, patient, playful and accessible teacher, willing to guide you in whatever direction you propose. He will make you jump into unknown rivers and safely guide you through rough currents."
Sandra Anais ; dancer & Embodiment of Archetypes facilitator / Slovenia
"As a dance instructor and movement therapist, I often find it challenging to find a healthy balance between blending the two practices while respecting them as their own thing. For a few years now, I felt that I was losing my creative edge and focus. A few times I thought I would have to give up one practice and solely focus on the other. This led to a sense of being torn, stuck and unsatisfied with my work. A recent move and health issue forced me to stop, take some time off, and rethink my professional path. I wanted to find a way to bring both practices together which would be satisfying as a teacher and facilitator. I needed a clear direction; I found Goran’s training and signed up.
When I arrived to the Dance Alchemy Intensive, I felt as if I had been walking into a brick wall for months. However, I walked away from the intensive with a new sense of purpose, focus, and satisfaction. I could dream again.
I now have a clear plan and action steps, thanks to Goran’s coaching, the input from the community of participants, and the additional times given to us for personal reflection.
Goran’s leadership style invites participants to look deeply into their intentions, values, and desires. He holds space for everyone naturally, making it look effortless. Goran leads not with his ego, but with his heart, and also from a place of vulnerability. He would catch up with us in the free times and inspire us to be accountable to the personal tasks we had set for ourselves. I felt known by the leader, which is more than I’ve ever experienced in past workshop intensives. Goran was always himself; a mature and experienced leader. I highly recommend his trainings."
Michelle Campbell; dancer, teacher & movement therapist / USA-DE
"Uniqueness of this program is coaching on a personal level, making one recognize the potential of dance practice outside of dance field."
Alexey Dmitrenko; dancer, teacher & choreographer / Russia
"Simple 8 step process gave me a practical framework to establish a structure and express my creativity at the same time.
During my first class people were inspired by teaching and the passion I put into it. I’m grateful to Goran for helping me give life to something I had yearned to do for a long time, but had a feeling I wasn’t good enough to do it."
Muriel Juillard; dance teacher / Bali
" I’ve took my dance to another level, got tools and inspiration for facilitation dance workshops in the future, came closer to myself and the nature.
" I think the most important thing what I take with me is the the strength, finding my core again.
Goran teaches with a lot of passion and a sense of community building and in a fun way, so that was important for me because in the last few months I was in need of laughter, communication of connection through fun, dynamic activities and through focused actions. He's a great facilitator. In this sense he’s like… “if you want to go there … go, there no excuses, just do it”. And for me that is exactly what I was looking for."
" I recommend Dance Alchemy Teacher Training to people who are already teaching something and want to develop, to become better, to think about their practice, and also to people who don't teach yet and wants to teach or maybe also not, who just want to move and explore and find themselves into the dance or some other practices. It's not just about dancing, dancing it's a tool to come closer to yourself.
My favourite moments were when we connected as a group and created some flow, and we become like one breath, like one heartbeat, and our heartbeats connected. And I like this connection of living in community, this was the best for me to be together with other people, to create and learn from each other, help each other to grow."
