REGISTRATION FOR UK & EUROPE RESIDENTS

REGISTRATION FOR US & CANADA RESIDENTS

For people interested in learning to teach OSF who need more experience in the practice before entering the OSF Teacher Certification Program. It includes the full spectrum of introductory OSF material, improvisation sessions, & in-depth discussions about methods & underlying concepts. 

Though not a commitment to the full OSF Teacher Certification Program, the 3-week Pre-Training Program provides prerequisites** & a sense of the nature of OSF Teacher Certification, to better know if it’s for you. It’s a ‘first pass’ at the complex array of considerations hidden behind the teaching veil, all required to effectively facilitate these transformative sessions. 

Unless you have many years’ experience with this practice — & even if you do — this preparatory program is recommended for all OSF teacher-trainees.  It renders the rigors of OSF Teacher Certification more digestible, less overwhelming, and more fun! We successfully instigated this OSF 3-week Pre-TT program in the States, & are seeing that sufficient experience in the less-demanding-but-rigorous atmosphere of OSF Pre-TT makes all the difference in maximum digestion during Certification and, ultimately a gratifying & successful teaching career. Though there are no short-cuts in this training, we come to appreciate the rich rewards of an authentic, grounded process that guides us smoothly along our journey. 

** If you’ve already had the equivalent of one two-week OSF workshop, this 3-week workshop will complete your prerequisites for our next OSF Teacher Certification Programs during 2018/19 in Seattle or in Europe.**

 OSF is creatively empowering for both teachers & their students. A rigorous, soul-expanding program, OSF Teacher Certification gives a solid grounding in methods & deep understanding of the work, ultimately empowering teachers & their students to expand OSF to adapt to changing circumstances in our lives & worlds, & integrate it with other practices they embrace. A key mission is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet. 

“Holding this program at Felinganol is an extra bonus for us. I find it among the most special places on the earth, with a stream, organic garden & meals, & ‘one of the 10 most spectacular hidden beaches on the planet’ a 5-minute drive away. Training together in such a magical location immeasurably enhances the learning experience.”  Stephanie

“One of the most memorable dance educators I’ve studied with…She allows you to unfold in ways that are innate, yet unknown to you.”  Laura Reichhardt, Choreographer

30 May – 10 June, 2016 (10-day workshop, 4 hrs/day, weekend off)
Mon, Tues, Thurs 10.00 – 14.00 Wed & Fri 10.30 – 14.30

To register please send a mail to info@bettinaneuhaus.com
Deadline for registration (including full payment) is May 8, 2016

Specifically designed for those with a foundation in SRT and/or OSF, this intensive is a rare opportunity to deepen one’s practice through the more advanded material from the basic releasing work – week 2 & 3 – and to expand this into creative process. Each day will comprise a 2.5 hour releasing class, alternating daily betwen SRT and OSF, followed by a 75-minute integration of this material with improvisation, voice work, and writing and drawing practices.

In essence it is an advanced course: more an in-depth study than simply a series of classes. In order to begin an Open Source Forms Teacher Certification Program in Europe in 2017, we’re offering this workshop so enough people can complete the prerequisites for this rigorous & gratifying teacher training.

Of course if you’re not planning to do OSF Teacher Certification, you’re very welcome to join — & move deeper & farther on your path within this work.

Prerequisites for this workshop are having experienced at least a week of Open Source Forms or Skinner Releasing.
