About the event
REGISTRATION CLOSES FEB 12 AT MIDNIGHT
Ready to learn the basics...or take your current experience deeper?
Want to learn more than just how to press buttons...like 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 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 training can accommodate UP TO 25 PEOPLE MAX and is currently scheduled to be held at 1010 Center St. in Santa Cruz, California.
$450 Early Bird (ends 1/15)
$550 Full Price
** Full or partial scholarships available for those who identify as a woman/BIPOC/LGBTQIA+ (or part of any other marginalized group).
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/BIPOC/LGBTQIA+ (or any other marginalized group) I want you with us if you feel called. To reduce any possible financial barriers, I offer you a sliding scale of $1 - $550 if that helps 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 have two controllers I can lend during the training if that's helpful to anyone.
Minimum Gear requirements:
Traktor Pro 3 software ($99)
Traktor Z1 controller ($219 new, $150ish used)
** Any of the more expensive Traktor controllers will work for this training
