If you are searching for clarity and inspiration, looking to be reinvigorated as a dance teacher and retreat into a space where you can connect with yourself, your potential, and your path... sign up for Goran’s training.

Michelle Campbell

dancer, teacher and movement therapist / USA-DE

I’m finally teaching again and using what you’ve shown me. Everyone loves the classes. I was stuck within my own self and walking through my family trauma and now  I’m teaching with fun, confidence and ease.

Jozef LeMonte

PURI Coaching / USA

Ficho 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

I lost touch with my body before coming to the course. Now i feel it again! I connected deeper with my body, myself, my potential and my path than I was ever before. I’ve got foundations to start a new practice. 

Napat Zuber - Machima 

Yoga and meditation teacher / Thailand

It's 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

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

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 would recommend this teacher training for anyone who is looking to start a movement practice or movement teaching practice because it offers a really great foundation to build your practice on with amazing tools. Or if you are already teaching and you are a bit in this space of needing reconfirmation and reassuring that you’re on the right path, this is a really good place for you to be.

Sandra Gojić, embodiment trainer & movement teacher / Ireland

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. 

There are many things but one thing I noticed here in the last part of the retreat where we had to lead our workshops, I really appreciate how Goran was giving feedback because that's an art form in itself. I’m really impressed with how it was constructed, to the point, and he always saw and knew a crazy amount of details that he gave to us.

And one of the things that I did not expect was the people and the experience I had here has been also shaped by the people. So I take home with me a lot of people in my heart as well, and that’s maybe the most important part in the end.

Anne Stilling Jeppesen;  psychologist, yoga teacher, healer, and a contact improv facilitator / Denmark

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.

Goran led our sessions very accurately, patiently, and with care. Some sessions were led by other people here, the teachers, the trainers as part of teacher training… and it was very interesting to see how everybody can bring out the best from themselves and how you can really get to know them better once you see them doing the things they enjoy the most. It’s really inspiring to be their guinea pig and to test on yourself what was or wasn’t effective.

Luisella Zandolin; holistic & forgiveness facilitator / Italy

After finishing the Dance Alchemy Teacher Training, I’m now able to independently pursue my path as a dance teacher and provide a very expansive, unique and authentic practice for my students & clients. I enhanced my creativity and I’m able to navigate the group dynamics through different phases and processes. 

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

Goran created a safe space in which I could dig deep down and explore why I am dancing, where it all comes from and what I want to give to the people in my class. Thinking about all of that gave me more clarity and confidence to step out of my comfort zone.

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 

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. 

I’m grateful for you Goran holding me a space every time I came to you, asked a question or came to you with stories, my inner events that occurred, and all the way I felt safe and supported.

I feel content, grateful, and happy and I’m very curious to see how this journey will continue.

Jelena Vuković

poet & women embodiment coach / Montenegro

Goran has developed a particular dance practice that allows us to swiftly switch from our mind back to our body. Returning us to the very place where we can again feel our needs, our full embodied and connection to ourselves.

Only from this position we can experience a purified self-reflection, dance our different roles, observe the use of our power, our reactions in relationships, set boundaries, and express ourselves much more effortlessly.

A stronger self-awareness arises within ourselves which helps us understand both our private and business lives much better. It strengthens our ability to make the necessary changes, which in turn improves the quality of our life.

I am very happy that our paths have crossed.

Simona Hana Boc; 

Managing director and owner at Založba CHIARA / Slovenia

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!

Goran’s work walks the delicate & permeable line between pure dance/movement and personal development, deep inner work. We all experienced our “stories” rising up at times but Goran was able to elegantly show us ways to channel those energies back into our dance. 

Goran is generous with his extensive knowledge and experience, and my only regret is not being able to immerse myself for longer! Each day was fun, interesting, and sometimes challenging but in a good, positive, healthy way. I really look forward to learning more with him in the future!

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. 

Goran embodies living with passion. He is generous in sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience and is intuitive in his teaching. 

Although intense, the workshop is well organized and offers many tools to make people feel comfortable, safe yet adventurous. It will challenge you to meet your edge and grow. 

I recommend it for anyone looking for a fun, yet powerful personal growth experience.

Audrey Kolb

Yoga Instructor and Dancer / Bali

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.

The training was well pasted, there was lots of opportunity for interaction and sharing, openness to feedback and inner processes that we were going through and Goran really opened a space to bounce off ideas and to be able to experiment a lot.

Goran was like a basket of surprise because there was always something new and unexpected, and he always knew how to incorporate moments of struggle for me personally into something that turned in the end into a wonderful landscape to play on, vast possibilities from knowing nothing into realizing the potential of what was going on in every session. 

He was really knowledgeable and very skilfully he navigated through all of the moments. He’s also very thoughtful and he knows when to lift the spirit and when to stir joking around and play, and also he knows when to get serious. And he really was able to show up in every moment equally, even though the training is very intense and intensive and his readiness in to be able to answer any question, and go through any situation, just really shows how professional he is.

Linda Biros, feminine energy leader / Slovakia

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. 

I’m really grateful and I would come back for more.

Katerina Danae Kandylaki; scientist and dance & movement facilitator / Netherlands

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 threw myself into the unknown and I experienced a lot, from healing emotions and wounds and allowing the inner work that needed to be done. The first moment I entered the studio I cried because I had come home and I saw the dance of life and everything, even in nature, and what a gift it is to dance. 

Goran is very skillful, patient, caring, and compassionate and has wonderful tools to incorporate dance into every field and our lives. Part of the work here ware also workshops led by other participants of the group I could learn from and they contributed to my healing and to my journey.

Lena O' Driscoll; yoga teacher and zumba instructor / Ireland

I lead my first dance workshop and I’m really proud of it!

I didn’t expect such a strong community and I’m really grateful for the wisdom of the group. You can really be yourself, you can articulate whatever you want, whatever you need, you can share what is on your mind, and your heart, and you can learn so much from others.

Goran is a great facilitator, he can really feel and lead the group, he’s so open to perceive and be aware of each individual in the group and that is rare and something really important.

Tina Koščak; teacher / Slovenia

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

Great experience to learn more about the interaction of breathing and movement, energy connections and empathic listening. 

Federica Cecchet

civil engineer and an architect / Italy

It was a soul-healing, creative and magical experience that I never could have imagined when asked Goran to work with me. 

Alenka Kac


Ficho body work with Goran Bogdanovski is most amazing leadership learning experience I ever had. Looking back at the progress I made in last three years since starting the Ficho improvisation dance trainings, here are some awesome tweaks that made my life as a manager easier and more efficient. I made huge progress on stuff that brought me free time and energy boost in return. How to be clear around what I want, how to engage others to follow with ease, how to enter the space and radiate who I am, and the super bonus for this disruption prone times - I am more resilient, I am quicker at renewing my capacity to act at my will even in the moments of intense outside pressure. Profoundly grateful...

Svetlana Šaljič 

manager at SETCCE / Slovenia

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, than 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. 

Žiga Lukman

social educator / Slovenia

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.

Maša Tiselj

TV presenter, actress / Slovenia

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 opening 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. 

Katja Beck Kos

cultural manager / Slovenia

I’ve got many practical tools for calming the mind. More freedom to my movement was expected but the scale of its effect was not. It was big. Courage and Love. More space in consciousness. Tool to make space in spine. The use and power of active imagination. Basic knowledge of archetypal approach. Importance of the archetypes in marketing...

One funny thing I noticed in my morning pranayama practice is that the breathing volume had jumped during the time in Slovenia. The length of inhale from 6 -> 8 sec. grew easily to 10 -> 12 sec. without an effort.

Samuli Räsänen

scientist & movement enthusiast / Finland

You are unique Goran with your energy, knowledge and connecting the group. You are passing on the mighty knowledge you have in a way that anyone can understand. And this is an art that only a few can do. 

Never before have I felt such a sense of fusion at dance or on horseback as I feel now. I also got a better insight into how to upgrade my ranch by introducing a dance into it, a dance that every soul will be able to dance.

Lucija Poličnik

horse riding teacher & urban planner / Slovenia

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

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. 

What surprised me really positively was people who I’ve met here. They’ve been amazing supportive, and they became like family members for me, hey became friends for me.

One of the aha moments for me was, that everyone shares different energy in this world and we need to take care of this energy, being soft and kind to each other, and support each other. 

Bibiana Krauskova 

dancer / UK - Slovakia

I was afraid to come, because I felt I’m not good enough. I’m not a dancer, I’m an engineer and I dance sometimes when I have time. I came to liberate my move and dance and to find new ways to express myself. 

Goran is a nice guy and excellent dance teacher. He have a lot of knowledge and a lot of insight, he is much more then just a dance teacher and it’s going way into a spiritual and deeper into the matter. Strongly recommending to everyone!

Vlado Vukadin

engineer/ Slovenia

Goran really knows what he's doing with this dancing, he just have so many tools, so many little tricks to get out of his pocket, that is really amazing. It's like guiding us so gently on the journey, that we didn't even notice that we left, and then suddenly we reached our destination: We were like … whoa, we didn't expect that:) And this is what I really like, like flow of all this inner work, a lot of tools, and at the same time making it gentle and  playful.

Ajda Flašker

meditation and yoga teacher / Slovenia

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.

Carolina Parreira

art & dance producer / Portugal

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.

Angela Maldonado

Inner dance therapist, yoga teacher / Spain

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

“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.

Goran does that in a really down-to-earth, joyful with a lot of passion but also really relaxed and natural way and he doesn't make a fuss about it.  He’s just like: yeah just experience it.

It’s a really nice jump-start of going into a mode of going towards what you want and what your path is, so I would definitely recommend it to everybody.”

Jasmin Cicek

 social worker & a seeker in life currently / Netherlands

Goran, I just report quickly that you “saved” my life yesterday :)

I was on a 10 km long walk through the deep and very soft (!) sea mud and water in the north of the Netherlands, crossing the seafloor to the island of Ameland. At first, I thought that I would be stuck in that mud, and caught by a tide that can come very quickly and forcefully. I was on the tail of the column running out of power, and I was falling behind more and more. Then I remembered your instructions and focused on breathing, forgotten myself and my fears, stopped thinking about how much time and the path was before me, and if would not be better to turn around ... Suddenly everything got easier, I dropped into some real technique and pace and advanced relatively quickly to the front of the column. Then I smashed water, mud, algae, jellyfish and crushed shells next to the guide to the end of the journey:)

So, if you still need confirmation that you really give us a lot of things in our trainings and that we can apply it in different practical situations, this is one of those ... Thank you!

Have a nice day and good greetings from Amsterdam,

Tanja Kersevan Smokvina

Communication policies consultant, ex State Secretary responsible for media and creative sector

"Dance Alchemy Teacher Training is perfect for you if you want to focus on one hand on healing your body through dance, nature, community, breathing, and authentic expression, and/or on the other hand explore the world of dance and movement, and incorporate it into your work. I came for both reasons and I am so very grateful for this epic 14-day dance journey. At the end of the retreat, I was very inspired by the fact of how much can one learn and experience in these 14 days.

It didn't take me long into the sessions when I realized HOW much was going on in my head, and how hard it is to consistently stay in the body, the moment, and keep awareness of the movement, and the breath. I learned how dance is an amazing tool for observing the connection between mind – and body and how it works in me. It was refreshing to feel how much gratitude my body gives me if I put awareness inside of it, different parts, breathe into them, connect dance and breath, and voice. To basically move very naturally, without the baggage of how it is »appropriate« to dance.


Lessons with Goran on the dance floor are powerful, and because you really embody them during the exercises and dance, you remember them often even outside of the dance studio. »Dance first, talk later« was the main theme of all the sessions and I loved how we could always find the parallel between the dance floor and life at the end of the exercises. 

Goran is enthusiastic, unique, and sensitive to each person's needs and individuality. Once you have a session with him it is clear to you that he has years and years of all sorts of movement practices in his body. Every session seemed to flow so organically, and naturally, you feel supported and we were always surprised how effortlessly we were led into free dance improvisation while incorporating so many new perspectives, details, and practical tools to take our dance to a new level. He lovingly but also firmly encourages you to face your fears and doubts or questions, and to be playful and curious. I loved how he shared his knowledge and encouraged participants to reshape and transform them into our own.

The retreat was a great balance between work and rest, it is long enough so you can really work on yourself and go deep. It is not really only teacher training, it gives a space for deep personal work if you wish to do it, it is a great place to find clarity and direction. It empowers you to take action toward your dream. I never imagined I would lead a dance alchemy session at the end of the retreat and it was an amazing experience – to create and lead a group through the whole session. I now feel more confident and can't wait to integrate what I learned into my life and work.”

Maja Toni; bodywork practitioner & dance facilitator / Slovenia

"My intention in coming to the retreat was to be better prepared to offer somatic dance to my community, and I achieved that, but I also gained so much more.

Goran's wealth of experience and skill together with his personal, customized approach helped me focus on my own growth and inspired me to step into the version of me who is meant to do this work.

Our dance alchemy wizard created a beautiful space for a cohesive community in a perfect location and led us through challenges with love, wisdom and democracy.

It was a beautiful experience that I will always remember and I highly recommend working with Goran to anyone who wants to bring movement into their human experience at a deeper level."

Natasha Ramlall; Mind-body coach and Somatic dance facilitator / Canada

"I wanted to feel more confident about how I could connect and develop my dance movement therapy studies with my existing job as a teacher in the future. I also needed time to take a rest and reflect on myself after a period of running so hard. 

During this time, I fully immersed myself in my movement and expanded the range and methods of my movements, discovering myself more deeply and feeling more passionate about what I want to do in the future.

 Being able to spend so much time surrounded by beautiful nature was also a great relaxation.  I was recommended this program by a friend who attended the first dance alchemy teacher training and it has way exceeded my expectations I would strongly recommend it to anyone who needs a boost of confidence and passion in their dance and movement-related profession or reflection and a break from it. 

Above all, Goran was a very experienced, pleasant, and thoughtful facilitator who tried to share with the participants as much as possible proven practices from his own experience. I feel very fortunate to have found such a reliable mentor who is so well grounded in his passion and experience in this field, and who is always there to support and encourage participants with an open ear and heart.

This could be one of the turning points and most memorable times in my life."

Jinwook Yang; Dance Movement Therapist and a special education teacher / Korea

"I just wrapped up an amazing adventure at the Intensive Dance Alchemy Teacher Training in the stunning landscapes of Slovenia. Picture this: 14 days surrounded by mountains, rivers, and waterfalls – it was like dancing in a fairytale.

Goran, our incredible mentor and dance guru, led the way. Under his expert guidance, the training was a whirlwind of learning and growth. Goran's attentiveness and intuitive teaching style created an environment of support and exploration, enabling me to acquire a wealth of new tools for my movement and dance therapy workshops and classes. Seriously, this guy knows his stuff.

Oh, and the food? Let's just say my taste buds did a happy dance too. Healthy and delicious – a real treat for body and soul.

But the real magic? The diverse bunch of fellow participants. We came from all over the globe and quickly became like family. We shared stories, laughter, and yes, a few tears too.

And the dancing? Pure catharsis. We let loose, shed inhibitions, and discovered layers of ourselves we never knew existed. Laughter and tears flowed, creating an emotional masterpiece. 

Looking back, this training was not merely a course, it was a transformative journey of self-discovery and empowerment. The dance, nature's beauty, newfound friendships, and Goran's guidance fused into an experience that lit up my soul.

Armed with a fresh outlook and a newfound love for the healing power of dance, I can't wait to share this magic in my own practice. If you're on the lookout for an adventure that blends dance, nature, and mentorship, the Intensive Dance Alchemy Teacher Training is an absolute gem. Get ready to dance your heart out!"

Some press reviews of Goran's dance productions:

Triton Award 2000 for best best dance performance in Slovenia.

From Nijinsky 's «Jeux» to Bogdanovski's «1:0» : a sport ballet history.

Ballet Tanz yearbook 2000: Arnd Wesemann

"The high voltage magic!"

Stéphanie Brody, La Presse Montreal, December 7th, 2004

"Bogdanovski makes you scream out loud from anger, cry from joy, and blush from love. All at the same time. Delicious!"

Pisteffo, host of the Antwerp based radioshow "Klokkespijs"

“This performance breaks all the rules of the classical ballet, especially when in the middle of the performance the ballet shoes are exchanged for football boots. You won't believe it until you see it.” 

Jutranji list (daily), Neda Galijaš, Zagreb, January 2000

“The one-hour dance performance is one of the most humorous dance performances on our national scene so far."

Delo, Mojca Kumerdej, Ljubljana (daily), January 2000

“Yesterday night in Cankarjev Dom, the Goran Bogdanovski quartet broke through the cultural sound barrier… Superimposing the most noble dance tradition and indicating a refined perception of existence, he created a multi-visual show, accompanied by the spontaneous ovation.”

Radio Slovenija, Ljubljana, June 2001, Jasna Skrinjar Taufer

"Graceful, balletic moves are juxtaposed with raw, industrial music to the comic but also strangely tribal effect. The trance-inducing noise blasts your senses alongside apoplectic seizures that stick in a loop, finally sucking you back into reality with a sharp slap."

On line review, Aerowaves - The Place Theatre London, February 2002, Rachel Tonkin

“Bogdanovski and his associates have made a giant leap forward: they have created an audience for themselves. Considering the numbers and enthusiasm of the Wednesday premiere's audience, I can even go as far as to say that he has widened the commonly rather narrow circle of contemporary dance viewers.” 

Tamara Langus - Radio Student, February 7th, 2003

"Performance of enormous variety, imagination and irreverence.”
