Dance Floors

GUIDANCE FOR BUYING NVC DANCE FLOORS

The Dance Floors are a fun, novel and creative method of integrating NVC that acknowledges a variety of learning styles and uses spatial maps made up of large, coloured cards placed on the floor in various layouts called ‘dances.’ People practice NVC standing up and ‘dance’ through the steps of a given process, such as dialogues with others (Stages 1 – 3) or inner processes (including self-empathy, mediating inner conflicts, and transforming anger, guilt, shame or depression).

You may want to buy Dance Floor materials if you are:
-

– Learning NVC and have been introduced to Dance Floors at a workshop

– Helping others learn NVC at introductory events, practice groups and trainings

– A self-study practice group who have already worked through Lucy Leu’s ‘Companion Workbook’
