Psycho-physical training

At the core of the training lies the extensive experience of a choreographer employing an integrative method, equally attentive to the realms of the body, mind, and spirit in his work. Dance is understood as a tool for understanding and a practice of communication across all levels of consciousness.

The training and technology are developed on the years of practice bases and aim to provide tools to overcome the fragmentation of body awareness and integrate its capabilities on all levels.

BODYDRIVERS is a training of organising body on 4 levels:
1. Physical
2. Mental
3. Energetic
4. Emotional

All four levels work simultaneously and integratively. The technique allows us to focus our attention on various aspects through a dialogue with our body, attention to small details, analysis, and the development of a comprehensive approach to the body as a tool for life. The practice of these sessions is directed towards obtaining keys to one's own body on all levels.

Invitation to the training

The BodyDrivers training technology enables obtaining keys to one's own body. To get it we do -

  • Study of anatomy
  • Practice of ergonomic movement
  • Techniques for working with mental imagery
  • Integration of movement and breath
  • Working with energy
  • Building neurodynamic balance
  • Uncovering individual psycho-physical characteristics
  • Partner and space work techniques
  • Working with the technique of enhancing and practically using intuition
  • Creating a dance from every movement

This traning is for someone who wishes to...
For those who wish to obtain strength and inspiration to embark on new endeavors or continue long-delayed ones through the integration and enhancement of concentration, attention to unexplored or forgotten aspects of the body, gaining access to sources of energy, and creating new neural connections
For those who want to feel their body light on the rise, free in movement, and precise in executing every action
For those who wish to master what nature has bestowed upon them, capable of unlocking this potential and gaining maximum opportunities for their own realization
For those who have experience in dance, yoga, qigong, and other forms of physical practices, to conduct a more detailed analysis of their own experience, overcome potential developmental crises, and gain new keys to the mysteries of their body"
For those who are not ready to stop and know that every moment can bring a brilliant solution, a new turn in life, and reveal all its magnificence. For those whose task is to be prepared to see it, to accept from life everything they need, and to let go of everything that creates annoying obstacles along the way
Curiosity about life in all its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.

In the first part of the traning, we delve into a holistic approach to working with the body, focusing on anatomy, warm-up, muscle elongation, and the practice of ergonomic and unrestricted movement.

In the second part of the traning, we concentrate on movement, emphasizing technique, the integration of the body and space, working with mental imagery, emotions, compositional techniques, and unlocking one's own potential and individual characteristics.

  • Throughout the traning, we explore how to create a dance from every movement and how to imbue each movement with meaning. We unlock the keys to our own bodies along with techniques for their skillful use.
  • We use the traning as a tool to heighten awareness, to perceive the patterns in both external and internal rhythms, to release subtle energetic flows, and to craft our own personal dance
  • We work on methods to enhance and practically apply intuition, paying attention to anatomy, practicing ergonomic movement, and working with mental imagery
  • We consolidate and reveal individual characteristics, elevating our own potentia
  • As a result, you achieve mastery over your body and space, develop trust in your intuition, attain elegance and precision in movement, and integrate the body's memory and intelligence into everyday life

Inspirations from participants
Dance makes people happy
  • Camille Lubart
    For me dance is a continuous line; in graphics, painting, drawing, movement, music, breathing... It is this approach that is very valuable to me in Kosta Grouss's classes. I have been perceiving all visible and invisible processes of existence as a dance for a long time now. Like a breath of invisible presence. A total dance. That is why I do not divide the arts within myself: it is visual arts, it is poetry, it is music... No, it's all the same. In painting and graphics my daily dance practice helps me a lot - to understand line, form, fullness and emptiness, the richness of tone and colour. That's why Kosta Grouss's classes help me, and make me happy - precisely with the precision of my understanding.
  • Michael Koles

    I was at a class of Konstantin, I really liked his methodology. In spirit, it is very close to me. The way he reveals the flow in the movement and organicity of each gesture in combination with the following, I was inspired not only to apply his method in dance, but also in everyday life! A huge thank you to him!
  • Maria Nanzat-Ool
    Kosta is an amazing person. A talented teacher who helps you find the "keys" to your movements; a magical performer who inspires you to dance; and a wonderful person with whom you can talk about any subject. After his classes I came closer to understanding the mechanics of my body. I recommend his dance classes to everyone and thank you for the experience!
  • Julia Hudolei
    Thank you for the immersion in the body. I studied choreography at a primary school for 7 years. And I wanted to continue the body and plastique classes. To learn facets of the dance world. The body has been asking to do it ever since. And that is what prompted the arrival of the Guslitsa - to visit the lesson of Konstantin Grouss. For a long time I've been dreaming to attend a lesson with the master. Sitting at home, followed the news from Guslitsa and saw, that classes have started in Guslitsa creative castle and this news prompted me to come back there. The plunge of attention into the body took place. Felt electricity begin to run and strengthen old neural connections and form new ones. Felt that I hadn't felt much before this moment. Slowing down, grounding. Turned out to be a Practice of self-love for me. Periods of mediation and dynamic practice. More aware of the movements now in normal life, this is what I noticed after the first two-hours class.

    Feedback on Konstantin Grouss's class:
    For me, as an artist with no professional training, it is very important to develop the possibilities of the body, which I actively use on stage, and in life. At the class, we worked with different focuses of attention in the body, movement and space, learned to draw with the body through movement and observe, as if from a distance, these drawings in space, invisible traces, lines that leave hands, feet, head, fingers... Here you can get surprised and enjoy your own movements, which with different focuses of attention blossom like exotic flowers.

    For me it is a new level of attention, not only to hear the inner impulse to move, but also to see, to trace with attention its manifestation in space. It is not so simple, attention needs to be trained to cover both the physical and the non-physical at the same time, to feel both the breath and the beating of the real heart, and the movement of the invisible kilometre long tail, whose presence changes so much the style and character of my dance. It's a challenging but amazingly fascinating process! I am filled with inspiration from new discoveries, meeting unfamiliar sides of myself. And on top of all that, I've had a lot of fun communicating with my own body.
  • Alexander Blinov
    performer / breakdancer
    I had a very interesting master class from Konstantin. I liked the comparison of myself with space, and taking apart the skeleton by parts, drawing attention to certain parts of the body. He also explained what the flow is and we moved towards the shore like waves in the sea. Interesting work with space and awareness of oneself as an organism in space to melodic rhythms. For me as a non classical dancer it was very interesting to add to my baggage of knowledge. I look forward to the next class.
  • Katya Kanakhina

    Repeatedly contemplated the dance of Konstantin Grouss it fascinates and holds the attention at all 100! Very useful masterclass for my body, for basics of dance. By the way the whole next day after the transformation with the body continued: as if I did the usual things in a new way - with easy grace, in the flow of dance very naturally. A miracle! And it is only 2 hours of work with the body, which flew by unnoticed) clever leading and bright inspiring images in the explanations. I want more and will be!
  • Max Dorozhkin
    Thank you very much! Very interesting class! Listening more carefully to my inner and outer sensations, I was able to better understand the world, myself and my body. In general, to move, and dance in particular, became more joyful and interesting. Learned important subtleties. I would sign up for a class.
