Program Calendar 

The Movement Arc offers two unique and distinct training programs designed for students with different professional goals, and individual professional development courses and workshops. Our  courses are generally offered every 6-8 weeks in Vancouver B.C., Canada with some courses being offered online using Zoom due to Covid pandemic restrictions, and to be accessible to students living outside of B.C. Canada.  The registration process  for either of our training programs begins with filling in the online Movement Arc Application and going through the admissions process.

All programs, courses and workshops currently being offered appear on the Program Calendar.  

We welcome your inquires and requests for courses.
