Have you ever...

  • Been curious about deepening your dancing practice and maybe taking a movement training? 

  • Yearned to create movement experiences and facilitate conscious dance, or learn how to incorporate movement into your existing work?

  • Felt the desire to share with others the power and beauty of what you experience on the dance floor?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we want to invite you to explore the Azul Teacher Training.

The Teacher Training is a powerful container that, not only takes you through a deep personal transformation and teaches you how to create movement experiences, it also helps you to align with your highest purpose and your service.  

How is it structured

The Azul Teacher Training is articulated into two modules Apprenticeship and Certification followed by periods of Mentoring. After each module trainees meet with Amara and other Azul teachers, both individually and as a group to receive support in bringing the Azul Spiral into their lives.

Trainees also need to complete the Azul Trilogy – a series of three retreats designed to provide trainees with the necessary foundational work required to become an Azul teacher.

The Azul Trilogy is the personal development portion of the program while the Apprenticeship and Certification modules are the professional training and require an application. All Trilogy and Training modules are led by Amara Pagano.

Training Outline

Apprenticeship

This module provides focused attention on the embodiment of the Azul Spiral and takes participants through an in-depth exploration of the guiding principles of the Azul. In addition, participants learn how to organize music, create playlists and build basic spirals and how to hold space for movement.

Upon completion, Apprentices are provided with tools and guidance to hold introductory Azul movement classes and enter the Azul Mentoring Program. As part of this program, Apprentices are supported by Amara and the School of Azul in monthly meetings for the period between the Apprenticeship and Certification modules. In addition, there is peer mentorship support from other certified Azul Teachers.

The Azul Mentoring Program is individually tailored, and is designed to incorporate the embodiment and practice of Azul and the components of the Azul Spiral into one’s life.
Apprentices have the choice to attend Certification and finish the program in the same year, or the following year.

Certification

The Certification module focuses on preparing Apprentices to form class content and teach Azul movement classes. During this training module, participants have the opportunity to deepen their understanding and embodiment of the principles of the Azul Spiral. Trainees also receive guidance in aligning with their higher purpose as teachers and leaders.

Upon completion of Module Two and the Azul Trilogy -that is a requisite for certification- trainees receive the Azul Teacher Certification and are qualified to teach Azul movement classes. They will also receive continued support for an additional 6-month mentoring period.

As an additional benefit, both Apprentices and Certified Teachers have ongoing access to the School Membership Site, which contains valuable marketing, administrative and informational tools and resources designed to support the practical application of the Azul principals and methodology in a professional setting.

Joining the Training in 2021

In 2021 there will be two tracks and two points of entry into the Azul Teachers’ Training. In the first track, the Apprenticeship training  will be offered online. In the second, it will be offered in person. However, it will also be possible to  start online and continue in person (see chart below).

Apprenticeship Part One follows the Embodiment Training both in January and April and will be limited to 30 participants. In Part One you will take another step in understanding the underlying principles and philosophy that support the path of Azul as well as receive individual attention on your embodiment. A significant amount of time will be devoted to the practice of “seeing” the body and Amara’s guidance as to where you can focus to deepen your embodiment. You will also receive training on how to hold space for movement and putting together a playlist. This will include developing your music library, categorizing music and creating a basic spiral.

Apprenticeship Part Two will take place in Assisi Italy at the beloved Le Torracce Center and be streamed Online giving you the choice of how to participate. In this portion you receive the next layer of understanding and embodiment of the Azul Spiral and take another step in learning how to create movement experiences. There is a also further attention given to individual embodiment and personal feedback from Amara.

The Azul Mentoring Program has two components. In the Weekly Mentoring you will have the opportunity to offer a practice class and receive support and feedback.  The Monthly Mentoring is individually tailored and designed to incorporate the components of the Azul Spiral into one’s life. The program also supports Apprentices in beginning to offer holding space classes.

TESTIMONIALS

Katja_Hofmann_Azul_Conscious_Movement_teacher

The Azul Teacher Training gave me hands-on tools I’ve experienced in my own body first. I experienced learning by dancing in a safe, supported and loving space and enjoyed being with an international group of like-minded people with big, open hearts.

Katja Hofmann, Australia

karen

The training was absolutely the best dancing and connection I’ve ever done…
Another part of the training is the use of technology and making playlists, working with the music itself. As a”non-techie” I learned SO much. Each person compiled a play list and offered a warm up session to the group. Everyone helped everyone else! The teacher training component gave us an excellent foundation to “go forth. Karen Holmes, PA, USA
