Dance as Medicine Program 

Do you feel called to share your love for dance with others?  Is dance your spiritual practice, your healing medicine, the way you connect deeply with yourself? Would you like to learn more tools to go deeper in your own practice?

This training is both personal and professional development.  It is perfect for those wanting to go deeper in their own personal healing journey AND for those that would like to hold space for others and share their passion.

I feel passionate about supporting your unique gifts, medicine, creativity and message to be nurtured in this training.  I am not inspired to teach you how to do what I do… but support you in being the most YOU CAN BE.

Learn the foundations of dance as a healing and spiritual practice, facilitation skills and tools, creating sacred space and transformational containers, class planning, music selection, authentic marketing, as well as exploring a few different conscious dance modalities as sources of inspiration.

About Hope

I have been dancing ever since I can remember.  Dance is what makes me feel most alive and like myself.

I am a practitioner of the 5 Rhythms™, certified Kundalini Dance™  Facilitator,  200hr Certified Yoga Instructor, Bellyfit™ Instructor, Aloha Mana Temple Style Lomi giver, Heartworks Traditional "Old Style" Lomilomi Instructor and giver, Kahi Loa (Hawaiian energy work) giver, and Reiki practitioner.

In 2012 I created my own Ecstatic Dance Facilitator Training. In 2019 I renamed it the Dance as Medicine Training. 

I am the mother of a very energetic toddler, devoted wife, loving friend, gardener, ceremonial priestess, and conscious dance DJ.

“Where else can you laugh, cry, get angry, jump, stomp, float & fly!?! Hope's ecstatic dance teachings will take you to places you never thought you'd go, and somehow you'll always end up exactly where you needed to be. Connect with yourself! Connect with others! Hope will guide you home.”
