      As always when connecting to the Dance the Medicine team one feels very nurtured. It was a great informative masterclass….Renee Lacroix was extremely Professional, adaptable, knowledgable and generous in her presentation. No question was left unanswered. Loads of great ideas to take away in terms of promoting your event As an older less technical learner I have never felt ridiculous or stupid when having to ask rather basic questions around social media or computers….I’m looking forward to ongoing training I would recommend them whole heartedly ☮️❤️

      I attended the DTM DJ training and found it to be very comprehensive, well thought out, and easy to understand. I am grateful that I chose this training because it allowed me to become familiar with the Traktor software and hardware. I am now comfortable with transitions and creating a well-organized music catalog. With the help of facilitators and mentors, I was exposed to various preferences and techniques. It was interesting to see how different DJs do things differently and why it works best in their workflow. This allowed me to find my own workflow and creative outlets more easily.

      Training was really good, I learned a lot and I felt the support of the team. Personally I found challenging to sit for 3 hours in front of the laptop, I wished that I could have at least 20 minutes break in between and not only 5-10 min Another point is the recording. It was great to have the possibility to review the recording and I noticed that sometimes it could have been great to have a different view: the person ,who records the video, could have change the view in order to see the traktor software better, e.g. when a person talks, the screen of that person could be muuuch smaller so the screen of the software could be bigger. In many videos both screen had the same size which it makes difficult to see the software. Another example is when there is small demo and the screens of all participants is on, if the dj controller is not pinned , we do not know what the DJ is doing because there are too many videos. I am aware it is extra work for the one who is recording and this is only a suggestion. Anyway it is so great to have them available for the next months. Thanks a lot for your teaching, with love Roberta Kasha
