About your Coach

I’m Goran Bogdanovski, founder of Ficho Institute and my life passion is helping others to expand the knowledge about their bodies, mind, emotions and spirit through creative process of dance improvisation and mindful movement.

I have lived and breathed dance professionally since 1990, danced for more than seventy different choreographers and directors in the field of performing arts. With my own dance company I choreographed performances and toured extensively around the world. I ran dance studios, festivals, platforms and networks.

For the past 20 years I was helping passionate people to overcome their limitations and achieve their dreams. I offer embodied knowledge for people that are physically active and have a desire for personal, professional and social transformation.

Methods I use are an accumulation of knowledge and experience gathered through leading workshops, artistic projects, events, coaching, mentoring, retreats, journeys … in 23 different countries in the field of Dance and Contact improvisation, Theatre, Meditation, Yoga, Martial arts, Spirituality, Therapy, Personal growth, Team building and Leadership.

Ficho method engages participants to discover their authentic self, advance personal and professional growth, enhance creativity, increase kinaesthetic and emotional intelligence and self awareness.
