Teacher Training Programme Level 1 – Module 1

with Alex Svoboda

Next workshop: TBC, 18 Aug 2018 - 24 Aug 2018

The Level 1 Teacher Training is the door to our house for new teachers. The year of training is a year of transformation - from the most dedicated followers of the practice into conscious movement teachers, from our favorite partners on the dance floor and friends intoour colleagues and co-owners of our school.

There are three residential modules and additional tasks that require asignificant investment of time and energy between the modules. This programme is a serious challenge! It develops skills needed to be a teacher and also tests our trainees’ ability and determination to teach dance meditation.

Admission requirements
We invite to the teacher training course only those dancers who have been committed to the practice for a sustained period of time. Making a decision about wanting to teach, being impressed by one or two outstanding workshops, would be a mistake. In our case "Fair and softly goes far" has particular relevance.

The first step on the path of becoming a freedomDANCE teacher is studying our school’s curriculum. The following minimum requirements for admission to the Level 1 Teacher Training will give you an idea where to begin:
(1) Two years of dance meditation practice
(2) A minimum of 180 hours of practice with teachers accredited with ICMTA, Including:
- a minimum of 2 days of workshops in each of the four categories: freedomDANCE Cycle; Body Map; Polarities (Three Stages - Six Energies Map); It’s Elementary!

- These hours need to include a minimum of 120 hours of Level 2 or Level 3 practice, of which 60 hours need to be Level 3. Level 2 includes the following three categories: Unity; Synthesis; Lessons. Level 3 includes the following three categories: Open Hearts; Life Line; Juice.

- The 180 hours need to include one workshop lasting at least 5 days, or two workshops lasting at least 3 days each.

We are happy to help you understand these requirements and also develop a plan of how you can fulfil them if you need additional practice.

Programme Application

If you would like to participate in the course, please let us know by writing to teacher-training1@freedom-dance.com. We will send you a registration form together with a table to add up your hours of practice as well as other information.

A Calling: Dance Meditation and Shamanic Journeying Workshop

with Pavel Timashkov and Alex Svoboda

Next workshop: Cambridge, 28 Jul 2018 - 29 Jul 2018

“A shamanic technique may be anything that disrupts and confuses the normal stream of thoughts, the habitual experience of emotions and ordinary physiological processes, and then produces a new rhythmic pattern… Dancing is one way of restructuring our consciousness and thereby entering another world.” (Holger Kalweit 1988, Dreamtime & Inner Space: The World of the Shaman)

In our workshop we bring together freedomDANCE, a method of dance meditation and conscious movement, and shamanic practice. Through our dance we will arrive into presence and enter non-ordinary reality, or the world of the shaman. We will climb the World Tree to reach the Upper World and we will decent to the roots to enter the Lower World. We will dance in the Middle World.

A calling.
From the place of presence one sends a call and the vail between ordinary and non-ordinary disappears. The invisible comes in sight.
A calling…
The journey begins, and we find our way to the Lower World – the place of vitality and beauty and a home for Animal Spirit Helpers.

As we swirl in the dance, winds come to join and one becomes the dance itself. The one might hear the whisper.

A calling…
The journey begins and we find our way the Upper World – the place of guidance and wisdom and a home for Spirit Guides and Teachers.

A calling…
Does it come from within?
Does it come from without?
Void starts to whisper its magic…

Here I Am: freedomDANCE lab

with Alex Svoboda

Next workshop: Santa Maria, 28 Sep 2018 - 3 Oct 2018

Being seen is one of those things that we most want and are most scared of.
And that is where we are going with Here I Am.
We are going to be seen.
Seen by a partner.
Seen by the whole group of fellow travellers on this journey of self-discovery, creativity and healing.
Seen by the sand, sun, waves and wind…

Here I am
Just as I am
No masks
No armour
Just a human soul in a moving body
Just a dancer

We will move
We will connect
We will support each other
We will play and find pleasure in beautiful surroundings
We will nourish our bodies and spirits

Feel free to join us if you love dance, meditation and conscious movement, and have danced with freedomDANCE’s teachers or any other ICMTA member teachers for at least 20 hours.

Feel free to be with us if you are already teaching Conscious Movement, or are thinking about becoming a teacher.
