What do I need to get certified?
Great question. This course will be perfect for you if you are:
I’m completely new to dance, can I still do the course?
Will this course give me tools I can use in other environments?
Will I be able to facilitate or teach at the end of the course?
You can join anytime.

I don't really have time free for learning right now. Should I still join?
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:)
Are there any in-person elements included?
Absolutely! And it's 14 days.

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 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.
“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.
“ 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!
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.
“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.
"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.
" 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.
" 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."
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.
“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 lead my first dance workshop and I’m really proud of it!
“ 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.”
“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.”
“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.
"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."
"Great experience to learn more about the interaction of breathing and movement, energy connections, and empathic listening."
"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."
"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.”
