Lucija Poličnik, horse riding teacher & urban planner / 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."

I’m Goran Bogdanovski, 49 years old Holistic Dance Teacher, Transformational & Business Coach, Choreographer, Dancer ... and founder of Ficho Institute.

My life passion is helping people to step into the embodiment of their purpose, to fully creatively express and make all necessary transformations to achieve Flow & Abundance in their profession and business.

I have lived and breathed dance professionally since 1990 in the field of performing arts. In 2000 I had my own dance company, I choreographed performances and toured extensively around the world. As a director, manager, curator, producer... 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, Spirituality, Therapy, Personal growth, Team building, Business Strategy, and Leadership.

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


In fact, through teaching, mentoring, and coaching for the past 15 years in 23 countries, working with more than 3000 people, from non-professional movement lovers, professional dancers, people with disabilities, dance teachers, yoga teachers, martial artists, therapists, psychologists, coaches, professors, schools, managers, entrepreneurs, leaders…


I’ve discovered what functions clearly for any-body regardless of dance background, experience, or level of understanding dance, and created a Ficho method with more than 100 exercises, games, and 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 work so well, it makes it easy for anyone to implement, replicate or upgrade for their own needs.
