Léon Beckx is a dancer and a psychologist (MSc). After studying Gestalt therapy he came across the 5Rhythms in 2001 and fell in love with the Conscious Dance form. In 2008 he trained with Gabrielle Roth to become a teacher and has since then been teaching Conscious Dance in the Netherlands and abroad. Besides dance, Léon is a lifelong student of martial arts, a somatic practitioner and a playback theater actor and weaves these practices in his teachings. His teaching style is experimental and subtle with much focus on our bodies innate intelligence.
Léon will also bring his extensive experience with facilitation, community building and community art to the training. From 2007 he has been working as a senior trainer and co-director for a Dutch NGO ‘Diversity Joy’, working with diverse and often marginalized communities and educating facilitators (inter)nationally.
