To move and groove lovers in your community.
Your education provides you with everything to start grooving adults.
There are no requirements.

We highly recommend you've tried https://www.bodygrooveondemand.com or attended a live Groove class near you.
No, as long as you love to move your body to music, and you are confident to stand in front of people to provide a class, you are in the right place (and confidence
builds with practice!).
We do not teach people how to dance, but provide a space for people to tune into their own creativity and authenticity through movement.
You can start with Groove classes right after your training weekend, we highly recommend it, everything is still fresh.
Your first 6 classes will be your practice classes, to put into practice what you’ve learned during the education.
These classes will be in your own community.
You'll then submit one of your classes to us (online video submission).
Once we receive your practicum submission, you’ll hear from us within 10 days with feedback and a certificate upon approval.
The World Groove Movement™ provides you with everything you need to get your 6 practice classes going; video tutorials, sample playlists, marketing materials etc.
You have 1 year to finish up your practicum and submit, due to Corona virus, we'll be extending the practicum time of 1 year and will start your 1 year when the situation is back to normal and venue's are open to provide classes.
Yes, you’ll get a certificate after you’ve completed your practicum, which certifies you as an official Facilitator of The GROOVE Method®.
Yes, we are certified providers with ACE and AFAA.
Together with your initial training weekend, you will receive a 90 days temporary license to provide Groove classes.
After these 90 days, to continue providing Groove classes, your basic license fee is US$260.00/year (different payment modalities are available).
Community centers, Fitness / Yoga Studios, outdoors, basically any space you can get your groove on!
You just need a big enough room to dance in, a sound system, your playlist and perhaps insurance or a permit depending on your community (country) or location.
Yes. After you've attended your basic training weekend and are a certified licensed Facilitator, you'll be able to attend our Online Kids Facilitator training.
You may provide classroom GROOVE Experiences, but if you’d like to pursue larger group presentations, you’ll need approval from the Education department.
We also highly encourage anyone who is interested in grooving kids in schools to collaborate and work with our partners who have been doing this work in Canada since 2011.
Please contact Dani for more information.

No, the GROOVINmyLIFE workshop is an immersion into the Groove philosophy and how to integrate it into your daily life. It’s a combination of grooving, meditations and group activities, centered around personal-growth.
These workshops are available for everyone and is not a training.
This workshop does not cover techniques on how to facilitate The Groove Experience but it’s a great entry point into the philosophy and community.
We highly recommend taking a GROOVINmyLIFE workshop with Misty or one of our Master teachers.
You’ll receive everything during the training to provide a Groove Experience for your community.
So long as you can connect to music, you can lead grooves! Grooving is for everybody!
Absolutely, if you are meeting the requirements, you are in the right place.
Several people have taken The GROOVE Method® training without having grooved before and turn out to be ROCKSTAR facilitators!
We do however highly recommend you've tried https://www.bodygrooveondemand.com or attended a live Groove class near you.
