ICMTA Teachers' Gathering

One of the highlights of the ICMTA year is our Teachers' Gathering, also tenderly named TG.

From the year the ICMTA was born, in 2013, the Teachers' Gathering was held in different European countries each year, until the Gathering in France in 2019.

We had to move online in 2020, but we have still found our way to create a place of aliveness, connection & belonging.

After 3 online editions, we are finally gathering in person in 2023!

Save the dates: 10 - 14 October 2023 in France, between Lyon and Geneva.

Here is the venue:

Check this space for news and updates very soon!

We also hope to bring the Gathering to different continents in the future. If you are interested to help us organise these in the USA or in Australia/New Zealand, please contact us.

What Do We Do?
The Teachers' Gathering is an event for conscious movement teachers from any of the
ICMTA recognised schools (Azul Conscious Movement, freedomDANCE, Open Floor, Movement Medicine, Soul Motion, SomaSource and 5Rhythms).

The Gathering is a place to meet, dance, share, learn, reflect, and support each other, created by teachers for teachers.

It is not a workshop or a training but a field of common exploration around a theme, weaved & led by teachers from our different conscious dance schools.

Of course we dance a lot, enriched by the various flavours of all our dance modalities!

And the topics and sharings offered can be explored further in the Continuing Professional Development programme we will be offering throughout the year.

Who Is It For?
All teachers & teachers in training of the recognised schools are welcome at our Teachers' Gatherings.

You don’t have to be an ICMTA member to join us.

Frequency & Format
The Teachers’ Gathering has been held every year since 2013: seven times in person and three times online.

To honour our recent Climate Policy and follow the success of our online Gatherings, we have decided to alternate in-person Gatherings with the online format in future.
