Teachers Association

International Conscious Movement Teachers Association

What is the ICMTA?

The International Conscious Movement Teachers Association is an independent professional association, created in 2013 to support and represent teachers of dance meditation and conscious movement. Its members are dedicated to serving people in being more fully alive, creative, original and authentic in their self-expression, primarily through using the medium of the body-in-motion.

While the founding members of the ICMTA are teachers of the 5Rhythms®, trained and certified by Gabrielle Roth, the ICMTA anticipates that its membership will eventually expand to embrace and welcome teachers of other conscious dance and movement modalities.


Created by teachers for teachers and students, the ICMTA is a not-for-profit organisation, developed and operated according to the sociocratic principles of Dynamic Governance, an innovative self-governing model for groups that provides a voice to all members and avoids traditional top-down hierarchy. The ICMTA is based in Belgium with members across the world.
