What is the Ecstatic DJ Camp?
We like to think of it as a DJ-centric 'choose-your-own-adventure'! Somewhere between a retreat and an intermediate-level DJ Training. Ecstatic DJ Camp is where we will find the balance between playing and learning. At Ecstatic DJ Camp you will get to choose whether you want to learn to scratch, take a tutorial on music production or hang out by the pool waiting for your chance to play a set. And this is only the beginning!!
This camp is for you if you are:
• An Ecstatic DJ who wants to up-level your skills with Master classes led by veteran Ecstatic DJs
• A skilled DJ who wants to understand the Ecstatic/Conscious dance way
• A musician with the desire to collaborate with Ecstatic DJ’s and producers
• An Ecstatic Dance ceremony leader or conscious dance teacher who wants to enhance your classes and up your music game
• A dancing music fan who wants to geek out with friends and DANCE
(If you are just beginning your DJ journey we recommend you first attend our fundamental DJ Training the week before, then attend DJ camp. In this training we can take you from complete beginner to competent soundscaper in 7 days! Check out more information here. )
