"This course is a great way to get an understanding of how to set up and run a conscious dance event.


I learned a lot about building a playlist to establish a mood or theme. I also loved exploring the DJ technology,  and I got a lot of questions cleared up about event logistics.


Hope did a great job facilitating a split online/in person class. I felt included the whole time."

"I think this training was definitely worth the cost.


I loved going through the music and dancing to feel it, listening to the music for different sections of the dance, and starting my own playlists. I liked how the course was a balance of well prepared content and in the moment spontaneous teaching.


Moving forward, I am inspired to do my best to create an ongoing inclusive dance temple experience where I live."
