Message from Goran

For me, teaching dance is its own reward and I am constantly on a learning path. I hope that you will appreciate the enormity of what I have to communicate to you and the years of study it has taken me to learn the little I know of the art and science of dance improvisation and dance alchemy from my teaching practice and from many teachers, who I am very grateful to. Hopefully, I can cut down the time of your learning although all learning takes time.

While practicing dance is an art that takes dedication, consistency and time to develop, teaching dance requires a far greater level of commitment. Teaching dance requires consistent self-practice, passion, compassion, selflessness and dedication.
