Apprenticeship Program with DAVID MOONEY & YASIA LEISERACH
The Apprenticeship Program: Embody and deepen your connection to yourself, your own creativity and your offering in the world. The Apprenticeship Program includes time to work with your teachers individually, plus support from other experienced members of our team, to distill where you are right now on your path, and what feels most resonant in terms of next steps towards an emerging vision for your life.
This is a three module deep dive with a committed group of fellow dancers, Module 1 in February 2025 | Module 2 May 2025 | Module 3 October 2025 (see link below for more information).
This is also the prerequisite to Professional Teacher training with Ya'Acov and Susannah the founders of Movement Medicine.
