About

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


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


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 and 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 in 23 countries and online, 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…


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


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.


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, and can also be used in the creation, facilitating, leadership, personal growth, ...

and especially for living Freedom- embodied Lifestyle.

What is FICHO?

Fičo (Zastava 750) is the nickname for the iconic car from 70s in ex-Yugoslavia, the car that radically transformed the way people commuted and travel.

Even though it wasn't so stylish and elegant as it's European counterparts, driving it was pure magic. It was easy to master, fun to ride and it delivered way more than anyone could ever imagine.

And those are the qualities FICHO institute offers to you.
