Andrew Krichels is ILC's resident Dance and Movement facilitator. He has developed Experiential Movement Therapy through a lifetime of experience, training and passion for his core belief: move the body and the mind will follow. His early training at The Boston Conservatory of Music And SUNY Purchase produced a joint degree in Dance and Psychology. Andrew went on to a successful 25 year career with a dozen dance companies, and also taught on the faculties of Lincoln Center, Leonard Bernstein Center, The Grammy Foundations and many universities. He has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, Bravo and PBS.
Andrew has always had a fascination with human behavior and what motivates us to navigate life’s challenges in a healing and effective way. Seeking relief from extreme dance injuries led him to advanced certifications in Pilates, Bowen Therapy, and Medical Qi Gong. Andrew has also completed a 7-year training at the Estuary School of Healing Arts earning degrees in Auric Healing, Kabbalistic Studies and Pastoral Counseling.
Andrew is an alumni of Naropa University’s prestigious Authentic Leadership Program. For his thesis, he developed a series of workshops that became the foundation of Experiential Movement Therapy.
