BodyMind Dancing teachers are also usually Moving on Center or Dynamic Embodiment graduates. Other Somatic Movement Therapists interested in the special dance education of Martha Eddy may apply to train. They will be required to develop their background Dynamic Embodiment through classes in Laban Movement Analysis. Training requires specific Phase One DE-SMTT courses, prior training or track record in dance education, attending a minimum of twenty BodyMind Dancing© classes, and participation in teacher training workshops sponsored by Martha Eddy/Moving On Center-East. Instructors must participate in supervised teaching before becoming certified. This is an individualized mentorship program: readiness for teaching BodyMind Dancing will be assessed by founder Martha Eddy or her advanced instructors.
