Group instruction and discussions combine with small group activities using movement, voice, musical instruments, and improvisational rhythm games. Critique and feedback are an important part of the learning process.

Opportunities for networking with other DCFs of many cultures, backgrounds and experience levels provides stimulation and inspiration to developing facilitators.
