The Azul Teacher Training is an experiential program designed for individuals who wish to deepen their understanding of embodiment and healing through movement – either as personal practice or as movement teachers.
It is articulated in two 10 day modules, with additional mentoring and support after each module.
* Who is the Training for
The Training is designed for all those who wish to teach Azul classes and workshops and would like to build a local dance community.
The Training is also designed for movement teachers interested in expanding their horizons, for therapists who desire to incorporate movement into their practice, and for anyone interested in deepening their personal growth through the path of Azul .
*How it is structured
The Azul Teacher Training is articulated into two 10-day residential modules Apprenticeship and Certification followed by periods of mentoring. After each module trainees meet with Amara via teleconferences, both individually and as a group to receive support in developing their teaching practice or bringing Azul into their current profession. The program can be completed within one year.
Participants also need to complete the Azul Trilogy – a series of three 6-day 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.
Module Two: Certification
Module Two 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. Apprentices 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 pre-requisite for certification- trainees receive the Azul Teacher Certification and are qualified to teach Azul movement classes. They will also receive continued guidance from Amara and other certified Azul teachers via group teleconference and individual calls in support their teaching practice for an additional 6-month period.
As an additional benefit, both Apprentices and Teachers have ongoing access to the Azul School Drive, 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.
