Due to unforeseen circumstances, we've postponed til 2024 beginning a new OSF Teacher Training group. And changed our 4-week in-person Open Workshop to a one-week, facilitated by OSF creator Stephanie Skura. All are welcome -- whether new to the practice or experienced. We'll navigate Introductory level work, with options for more experienced people -- and lots of juicy improvisational processes, refined by Skura over three decades of teaching & choreographic practice, and refreshed continually with new ideas & experiments.

A key aspect is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet. Many are amazed at the seemingly ego-less dancing of OSF practitioners.

Places are still open. Join us!



"I'm refinding mytself through your work & I'm deeply grateful." Jadi Carboni, current OSF teacher trainee

PLEASE DONATE to help OPEN SOURCE FORMS (OSF) TEACHER TRAINING continue to train teachers in this ever-more-relevant- for-our-times unique practice that integrates teachnique & creative process.


Our open workshops, which formerly funded necessarily small teacher-training groups, have yet to return to pre-pandemic levels. Your support will allow new teacher trainees learn to create seemingly magical environments in which deep transformation is possible.

Rigorous & soul-expanding, OSF Teacher Training gives solid grounding in methods & deep understanding of the practice, empowering teachers who then empower their students to become compassionate, wise guides toward wholeness in ourselves & in our communities. A key aspect is individual creative empowerment as an instigator of positive change on the planet. THANK YOU for any amount of support possible! So far, we've raised 20% of our goal of $6000 for 2023 summer trianing programs in Seattle.

"Stephanie is 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 Reichardt, choregorapher
