I’m Goran Bogdanovski, Holistic Dance Teacher, Transformational & Embodied Leadership Coach, Choreographer, Dancer... and founder of Ficho Institute.

I have lived and breathed dance professionally since 1990 in the field of performing arts (classical ballet, contemporary dance, physical theatre, videos, and film). For over 10 years I was dancing for the Slovene National Ballet Company, from corps de ballet to principal roles and at the same time parallelly enjoyed a rich and versatile career as a freelance artist that brought me to work with many contemporary choreographers and theatre directors from the Slovenian and European art scene.

In 2000 I started practicing improvisation & Freedom - embodied Lifestyle. I had my own dance company, choreographed performances, and toured extensively around the world. I ran dance studios, academy, festivals, platforms, and networks.

In 2006 I started teaching, coaching, and mentoring. Methods I use are an accumulation of knowledge and experience gathered through my life in the field of Dance Improvisation, Contact Improvisation, Theatre, Meditation, Yoga, Martial arts, Embodiment, Spirituality, Shamanism, Therapy, Personal growth, Team building, Business strategy, and Leadership.

I’ve devoted my life to bring embodiment, dance, improvisation, creation, empowerment, and healing, helping people to become that 2.0 version of themselves.


In fact, through teaching, mentoring, and coaching for the past 16 years in 23 countries, working with more than 3000 people, from non-professional movement lovers, professional dancers, people with disabilities, dance & yoga teachers, martial artists, therapists, psychologists, coaches, professors, managers, heart entrepreneurs, CEO's, change leaders…


I’ve discovered what functions clearly for any-body regardless of dance background, experience, or level of understanding of dance, and created a Ficho method with more than 100 exercises, games, and Dance Alchemy tools that can also be transferred to daily situations, relations, and work.


Tools that can also be used for creation, classes, workshops, sessions, retreats, therapy, coaching, leadership, personal growth, and more.


Ficho method and Dance Alchemy tools work so well, it makes it easy for anyone to learn, implement, replicate or upgrade for their own needs or the needs of their clients and students. And can also be used in the creation, classes, workshops, sessions, retreats, therapy, coaching, leadership, personal growth, ... and especially for living a Freedom- embodied Lifestyle.

I’m completely new to dance, can I still do the course?

Absolutely. Dance Alchemy Teacher Training takes you from an absolute beginner, through developing your own embodied practices to being able to help others as a facilitator or teacher by the time you get certified.

The program is based on the Ficho method: a holistic approach, a playful process, and an inclusive environment. Any-body can do it

Will this course give me tools I can use in other environments?

Yes. This course is designed to give you practical tools that you can actually apply to other and mainstream environments.

Our “students” are dance artists, dance teachers, yoga teachers, meditation teachers, healers, therapy practitioners, psychologists, yoga and martial arts practitioners, dance therapists, change leaders, heart-centered catalysts of transformation, people who are involved in community work, managers and CEO’s… and they all use our tools and embodied knowledge in their work.

Can everybody do a Dance Improvisation and Contact Improvisation?

Of course!


What is Dance Improvisation? Wikipedia says:

Dance improvisation is the process of spontaneously creating movement. Development of improvised movement material is facilitated through a variety of creative explorations including body mapping through levels, shape, and dynamics schema.


Dance Improvisation is a free, seemingly unstructured, less technically strict, and impulsive form that draws inspiration from everyday dance practices and influences. It is a movement technique that is capable of evoking dramatic and thought-provoking content.


But Dance improvisation is not only about creating new movement but is also defined as freeing the body from habitual movement patterns. A lot of improvisation is focused on finding a deeper way of comprehending otherwise concealed thoughts or feelings. Through the emphasis of instinctual, unpredictable, free movement that improvisation is centered upon, the dancer is able to explore authentic feelings and inspirations working on self-observation and self-study. And the key is in being present in every moment.


Somebody once said:” Improvisation is scary, but once you give it a try, you realize it’s the best thing that ever happened to you!”


Will I need somebody to train with in modules that use Contact Improvisation tools?

Part of the Online course are tools from Contact Improvisation.

Yes, you will need somebody to train with, a partner, a spouse, a friend, a co-worker... anybody that you want to invite to have fun with, to tap into the joy of improvisation and dance expression.

It's so much fun to share your practice with someone:)


If you are already teaching and facilitating, training and practicing with your group is the best way. We learn so much by teaching and facilitating.


When does the course start and finish?

You can join anytime.


If you take the Online program you can start immediately after purchasing the course, it’s completely self-paced with a 6-month access to weekly live online coaching and monthly live immersion workshops. And you have lifetime access to the Online course with video library tutorials with instructions and action items.


Live weekly online Coaching sessions are 3 times a month on Tuesdays at 9 am & 8 pm Ljubljana (Slovenia) - Central European Time


Live online immersion workshops are once a month on Tuesdays at 9 am & 8 pm Ljubljana (Slovenia) time - Central European Time. Exact dates will be announced in the group


If you aim for the "Dance Alchemy Teacher Certificate" you also need to attend 4 in-person weekend workshops or a 14-day Retreat. Please check this website for dates and locations.

How long do I have access to the online course?

How does lifetime access sound?

After enrolling, you'll have lifetime access to the Online course - video library and a Facebook private group.

And you'll have 6 months of access to ongoing weekly online Q&A sessions and monthly live online workshops with Goran!

I don't really have time free for learning right now. Should I still join?

No. Dance Alchemy Teacher Training requires some time commitment of a few hours a week. If you aren’t prepared to commit to this time each week, this isn’t the course for you.

That being said, the majority of the course is flexible and can be done in your own time. So DATT is suitable to work around a busy diary.

I’m so busy already. How much time will I need to commit to this program?

I believe that a person being “too busy” is just a myth and it’s just an excuse. People make time for the things that are really important to them. And the truth about time is you can’t have time, you can’t own time, time is, it always is:)


Like everything in life, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out!


Most people will spend a few hours per week on learning, embodiment + application. The exact time commitment will vary from person to person – depending on your situation, urgency, and how much support you already have.


>> Plus, one of the perks of joining the program is that you have LIFETIME access to the online course, so whenever you’re ready to dive in and implement, the modules will be waiting for you, ready to cheer you on.


With that said ... Work at your own pace and apply knowledge to your own practice and daily life, work, relations...

Are there any in-person elements included?

Yes. There are 4 in-person extended weekend workshops and a 14 days retreat in Ljubljana (Slovenia) or Bali.

Please check the website for dates or send an e-mail.

It’s a training of body, mind, and spirit training through dance improvisation and creation.

Is there a 100% money-back guarantee?

Absolutely! And it's 14 days.

Go through the course, use everything, come to the weekly Q&A and live workshops with me, and if for some reason you don't like the program, just send me an email with a reason and you'll get a refund.

What people are saying about working with Goran?

"If you are searching for clarity and inspiration, looking to be reinvigorated as a teacher, facilitator, coach and retreat into a space where you can connect with yourself, your potential, and your path... sign up for Goran’s training."

Michelle Campbell; dancer, teacher and movement therapist / USA-DE

"Amazing journey, from ice to love soul! And I’ve got new professional tools for upgrading my existing practice and received knowledge for better self awareness and higher emotional intelligence. Anyone who deals with people should experience it."

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

“What I have gained from this experience is a really great sense of grounding and reassurance about my already existing teaching practice. I really dived into an experience of dancing for six hours a day that allowed me also to rediscover my playfulness and the source of my creative energy.


I would recommend this teacher training for anyone who is looking to start a movement practice or movement teaching practice because it offers a really great foundation to build your practice on with amazing tools. Or if you are already teaching and you are a bit in this space of needing reconfirmation and reassuring that you’re on the right path, this is a really good place for you to be.”


Sandra Gojić, embodiment trainer & movement teacher / Ireland

“I wanted to have more skills and tools to expand my practice with movement and what I learned here is a confirmation that a lot of stuff that I’m doing makes sense and I gained some sort of safety and confidence in the practice I already have. And I’ve got tools, ideas, and new ways to improve those practices or even use them for different groups and people with different issues and needs.


There are many things but one thing I noticed here in the last part of the retreat where we had to lead our workshops, I really appreciate how Goran was giving feedback because that's an art form in itself. I’m really impressed with how it was constructed, to the point, and he always saw and knew a crazy amount of details that he gave to us.


And one of the things that I did not expect was the people and the experience I had here has been also shaped by the people. So I take home with me a lot of people in my heart as well, and that’s maybe the most important part in the end.”


Anne Stilling Jeppesen; psychologist, yoga teacher, healer, and a contact improv facilitator / Denmark

“I came here because I wanted to integrate and enrich my range of tools I could suggest to my students and clients and it’s been a very empowering experience from many points of view, emotional, technical, and professional. it was something that has worked at a deeper level, at a level where everybody is ready to go.


Goran led our sessions very accurately, patiently, and with care. Some sessions were led by other people here, the teachers, the trainers as part of teacher training… and it was very interesting to see how everybody can bring out the best from themselves and how you can really get to know them better once you see them doing the things they enjoy the most. It’s really inspiring to be their guinea pig and to test on yourself what was or wasn’t effective.”


Luisella Zandolin; holistic & forgiveness facilitator / Italy

“ I loved the 5 days I just spent exploring movement under Goran’s wise & playful guidance. I needed some inspiration and some innovative ways to play with and think about dance, and I found some!


Goran’s work walks the delicate & permeable line between pure dance/movement and personal development, deep inner work. We all experienced our “stories” rising up at times but Goran was able to elegantly show us ways to channel those energies back into our dance.


Goran is generous with his extensive knowledge and experience, and my only regret is not being able to immerse myself for longer! Each day was fun, interesting, and sometimes challenging but in a good, positive, healthy way. I really look forward to learning more with him in the future!”

Allison Mulroy; studio owner, dance teacher & dancer / Bali

"I joined this Dance Alchemy TT with Goran because I'm at a crossroads in my life and I've been looking for clarity and inspiration. A pathway to combine my experience teaching yoga and love of dance into an offering for those who want to tap into their inner power to live their fullest life. A life of joy and purpose with passion.


Goran embodies living with passion. He is generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience and is intuitive in his teaching.


Although intense, the workshop is well organized and offers many tools to make people feel comfortable, safe yet adventurous. It will challenge you to meet your edge and grow.


I recommend it for anyone looking for a fun, yet powerful personal growth experience."


Audrey Kolb

Yoga Instructor and Dancer / Bali

“It was so intensive, magical, and beautiful. I got many many tools that I will definitely integrate and use in my embodiment work, but I also got this opportunity to live a lifestyle of a dancer which I wanted for a very long time.


I’m grateful for you Goran holding me a space every time I came to you, asked a question or came to you with stories, my inner events that occurred, and all the way I felt safe and supported.


I feel content, grateful, and happy and I’m very curious to see how this journey will continue.”



Jelena Vuković; poet & women embodiment coach / Montenegro

"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.


What surprised me really positively was people who I’ve met here. They’ve been amazing supportive, and they became like family members for me, hey became friends for me.


One of the aha moments for me was, that everyone shares different energy in this world and we need to take care of this energy, being soft and kind to each other, and support each other. "


Bibiana Krauskova; dancer / UK - Slovakia

" The most important benefit of Online course was of getting something I can refer to, also to see live examples and so many modalities to use. I got an excellent base point to build upon, exactly what I was looking for.

It gave me the confidence to teach now, which I was previously lacking.

It’s truly transformational to see, how people use their bodies and how they are with others. And the way I move my body changed, the way I move through space changed, and my work did change because I will teach this!!

Also, the breath-work was another incredible thing for me, as after it I had SO much energy for two whole days!

An online Dance Alchemy Teacher Course will provide you the clarity, base, ideas, structure, and teaching tools for you to expand and create your own unique teaching practice.

I am about to take the next leap, wouldn't have been possible so soon without this!"

Arushi Malaker; dance & yoga teacher / India

“ I've just completed your online teacher program and THANK YOU so much, it was everything I looked for and even more. It was a real journey and I will make it continue. I really really really enjoyed it!

I am a dance teacher but I never liked contests or judgment or dancing this way or that way for tv shows. I love dancing according to my feelings and I really wanted to open classes in which I could dance this way: to listen to my body and to have the tools to teach my students in a holistic and playful way.

After this experience, I definitely do not want to teach dance as I used to, even if I have to start on my own.

Online course Dance Alchemy Teacher Training is transforming, it opens our mind, it gives pleasure and freedom.

Thanks a lot, Goran for your tools, your experience, and your knowledge. It was great and rich to learn from you!

P.S ...One funny thing, during the lock-down, I asked my husband to train tools for duets and contact improvisation with me:) It was quite something! Difficult at the beginning and then, awesome! ”

Amandine Mons; dance & yoga teacher / France


I experienced a lot of things, and a lot of learnings, and every experience was a gift that showed me where I need to go and where I have gaps, in what areas of my life I would need to cut to develop myself to be able to share my gifts and assets with the world.


The training was well pasted, there was lots of opportunity for interaction and sharing, openness to feedback and inner processes that we were going through and Goran really opened a space to bounce off ideas and to be able to experiment a lot.


Goran was like a basket of surprise because there was always something new and unexpected, and he always knew how to incorporate moments of struggle for me personally into something that turned in the end into a wonderful landscape to play on, vast possibilities from knowing nothing into realizing the potential of what was going on in every session.


He was really knowledgeable and very skilfully he navigated through all of the moments. He’s also very thoughtful and he knows when to lift the spirit and when to stir joking around and play, and also he knows when to get serious. And he really was able to show up in every moment equally, even though the training is very intense and intensive and his readiness in to be able to answer any question, and go through any situation, just really shows how professional he is.”


Linda Biros, feminine energy leader / Slovakia

" Goran really knows what he's doing with this dancing, he just have so many tools, so many little tricks to get out of his pocket, that is really amazing.


It's like guiding us so gently on the journey, that we didn't even notice that we left, and then suddenly we reached our destination: We were like … whoa, we didn't expect that:) And this is what I really like, like flow of all this inner work, a lot of tools, and at the same time making it gentle and playful."


Ajda Flašker; meditation and yoga teacher / Slovenia

" 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."


Angela Maldonado; Inner dance therapist, yoga teacher / Spain

" 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."

Živa Stojanovič; teacher of Circus. Acro yoga, Aerial yoga and Dance / Slovenia

“What I admire most is the facilitator himself Goran, he is an insane source of inspiration, an incredible mentor that encourages you to go on your path and sees you for who you are. And he allows the freedom to use his tools in your own way. He’s actually very happy if you take his tools and use them in your own way, to Alchemize them as he calls it.


I’m really grateful and I would come back for more."


Katerina Danae Kandylaki; scientist and dance & movement facilitator / Netherlands

“This experience was like a re-birth and life-changing, it can take you on where you’re meant to go, your life path … there are many ways you can describe it, it’s wonderful and it’s just such a great opportunity to see how dance can bring you to yourself and to the truth.


I threw myself into the unknown and I experienced a lot, from healing emotions and wounds and allowing the inner work that needed to be done. The first moment I entered the studio I cried because I had come home and I saw the dance of life and everything, even in nature, and what a gift it is to dance.


Goran is very skillful, patient, caring, and compassionate and has wonderful tools to incorporate dance into every field and our lives. Part of the work here ware also workshops led by other participants of the group I could learn from and they contributed to my healing and to my journey.”


Lena O' Driscoll; yoga teacher and zumba instructor / Ireland

“I lead my first dance workshop and I’m really proud of it!


I didn’t expect such a strong community and I’m really grateful for the wisdom of the group. You can really be yourself, you can articulate whatever you want, whatever you need, you can share what is on your mind, and your heart, and you can learn so much from others.


Goran is a great facilitator, he can really feel and lead the group, he’s so open to perceive and be aware of each individual in the group and that is rare and something really important.”


Tina Koščak; teacher / Slovenia

“ It’s really a transformational experience. I see Goran as this energy, strong, powerful, but gentle at the same time. Someone who you can feel really is interested in transformation and helping people get to that transformation through movement because movement is his thing. Dance is his expression and his tool. He offers a great combination of concrete, practical, spiritual, personal and professional development.”


Carolina Parreira; art & dance producer / Portugal

“It was a powerful Journey. Goran is great, he has so much experience as a performer, and as a facilitator and a teacher he rally knows how to hold space, he really knows how to adapt to the group, he senses, he reads the room and knows how to guide everyone and the whole group, so that everyone gets the most from the experience. And he has so many tools he developed through years and years, and these tools are really so simple in a way, but so very powerful and so useful, and I and everybody can, no matter the skills people have, and how experienced they are, they can get something from the tools. But also they have so much depth, that if someone is more experienced in dance, or other body practices, it can go even deeper, so it’s just so many layers.”


Maša Tiselj; TV presenter, actress / Slovenia

“You are unique Goran with your energy and knowledge. You are passing on the mighty knowledge you have in a way that anyone can understand. And this is an art that only a few can do.”


Lucija Poličnik; reiki master, angel therapist, ski instructor and horse riding teacher / Slovenia

“It was a really beautiful, interesting, and intense experience, it was something that needed to marinate for a little while because I just transformed so many layers and I needed to understand what happened and I just didn’t have the words. But it definitely brings you back to the core, and that is what movement, especially breath-work, does. I feel that the energy work that Goran does helps us do.


Goran does that in a really down-to-earth, joyful with a lot of passion but also really relaxed and natural way and he doesn't make a fuss about it. He’s just like: yeah just experience it.


It’s a really nice jump-start of going into a mode of going towards what you want and what your path is, so I would definitely recommend it to everybody.”


Jasmin Cicek; social worker & a seeker in life currently / Netherlands


"If you would like to get to know yourself better and learn how can you use this what you have and what you are good at in your life, then you should come here because you have masters who can really support you on your way, personal, professional or what ever way. This is something where you can get the support."


Žiga Lukman; healer & social educator / Slovenia

"Great experience to learn more about the interaction of breathing and movement, energy connections, and empathic listening."


Federica Cecchet; civil engineer and an architect / Italy


"I came for the techniques and some wisdom. And apart of full of that, I also got my Soul :) or Home. Dance Alchemy is a perfect mix of exercises, that are enhancing body awareness, emotional intelligence and opens the dialogue between body - mind - emotions and soul, creating the primary space to just Be. I’ve also got new tools and methods for working with my team at current job and I feel clearer in my life direction and new possibilities to start new “profession."

Katja Beck Kos, cultural manager / Slovenia

“Ficho body work with Goran Bogdanovski is most amazing leadership learning experience I ever had. Looking back at the progress I made in last three years since starting the Ficho improvisation dance trainings, here are some awesome tweaks that made my life as a manager easier and more efficient. I made huge progress on stuff that brought me free time and energy boost in return. How to be clear around what I want, how to engage others to follow with ease, how to enter the space and radiate who I am, and the super bonus for this disruption prone times - I am more resilient, I am quicker at renewing my capacity to act at my will even in the moments of intense outside pressure. Profoundly grateful..”


Svetlana Šaljič; co-owner & CTO at SETCCE / Slovenia

"Liberating and amazing experience! Goran has this knack of really connecting the essence of people and making you comfortable with getting in touch with really knowing yourself and not being afraid of it, enjoying it and enjoying the process.”


Paul Vratusha, investor & CEO at Atelier ltd. / Brasil - UK - Slovenia

Goran has developed a particular dance practice that allows us to swiftly switch from our mind back to our body. Returning us to the very place where we can again feel our needs, our full embodied and connection to ourselves.

Only from this position we can experience a purified self-reflection, dance our different roles, observe the use of our power, our reactions in relationships, set boundaries, express ourselves much more effortlessly.

A stronger self-awareness arises within ourselves which helps us understand both our private and business lives much better. It strengthens our ability to make the necessary changes, which in turn improves the quality of our life.

I am very happy that our paths have crossed."


Simona Hana Boc; Managing director and owner at Založba CHIARA / Slovenia

“ I came to liberate my emotions, to move and dance and to find new ways to express myself. Goran is a nice guy and excellent teacher. He have a lot of knowledge and a lot of insight, he is much more then just a holistic dance teacher and executive coach and it’s going way into a spiritual and deeper into the matter of leadership. Strongly recommending to everyone!”

Vlado Vukadin; CEO at IRGO / Slovenia

“ I’ve got many practical tools for calming the mind. Courage and Love. More space in consciousness. More freedom to my body and movement was expected but the scale of its effect was not. It was huge."
