About the event


Training limited to 18 people max

Ready to learn the basics or take your current experience deeper?

Want to learn more than just how to press the actual ART of DJing for a conscious dance journey?

Ever wonder how it would feel to ignite a room full of dancers?

To open realms for them that they've only dreamed of? Or never knew existed?

How would it feel to do all this AND know that healing and transformation is also taking place?

Including (and especially) your own...

Then this 3-day residential training is for you! We will spend some time the first day making sure everyone can work with the basics of Traktor Pro 3 and their controller (see req'd gear info below) before diving into the deeper end of the pool by curating and mixing for each other. There will be lots of movement as well over the course of the weekend.

If you've never DJ'd before you will emerge knowing how to create a basic set that is a unique and potent expression of you and mix it live. If you've DJ'd previously you will emerge from the training with a new world of possibilties and perspectives on the art and craft of DJing. The emphasis of this training is on curation and journey-building along with the responsibilities/opportunities of being a space holder.

This is a residential training held at our beautiful property Skyview in the Santa Cruz mountains. Meaning that you come and stay for the whole weekend. Tent or car camping. Organic vegetarian meals (vegan/gf options) are included. See FAQ page for details.

** Partial scholarships available for those who identify as a woman/BILPOC/LGBTQIA+

You will need to arrive with Traktor Pro 3 installed on a laptop along with any of the Traktor controllers. You will need to complete two simple preparatory lessons (allow four hours total time) that I provide advance instruction for to familiarize yourself with the set up and test the system so that you can begin the training on Friday with some working knowledge already in place, and a functioning basic DJ set up.

You must be able to attend all days of the training from start to finish. No exceptions.

This is an "in-person" training, no online option is possible.

If you identify as a woman/BILPOC/LGBTQIA+  I especially want you with us if you feel called. To reduce any possible financial barriers, I offer you a partial scholarship of $300 to help you get there. You will still need to buy or borrow the gear and software if you don't have it already, of course. I personally don't have any gear I can lend you, unfortunately.

Minimum Gear requirements:

Traktor Pro 3 software ($99)

Traktor Z1 controller (this is their lowest priced model at $219 new, $150ish used)

** Any of the other Traktor controllers will work for this training as well
