Kayliah Mckinnon (NZ):
My DJ Ecstatic Dance Facilitator Training with Kimberley Jade was an amazing and enriching experience. Kimberley held such inspiring heart centred feminine lead space. If you’ve ever dreamed of DJing or creating Ecstatic Dances, I highly recommend immersing yourself in one of Kimberley’s courses….she teaches not only the technical side of the DJing but speaks so much to the heart, creativity and emotion of Ecstatic Dance. It’s been a few months since my course and I am already creating Ecstatic Dances in my area.
Isabelle Idelon = DJZa (NZ):
I previously had an amazing training in Ecstatic dance and I already facilitate dances at Kanuka Yoga Space, Hobsonville. I got a DJ but ended up wanting to DJ myself…for that I needed to go further into that part of my learning and….I found Kimba I’m 60 years old and all the computer side: downloading music, playlists on iTunes, dealing with softwares etc….was at first a challenge for me. Kimba was here, patient, allowing me to go at my own pace, reassuring and empowering me, so that very fast I became very at ease and even surprised myself. I did the 1 on 1 course and it was tailored to suit my needs….enough time to digest and practice between 2 sessions. Quickly the magic of mixing conquered me and I can barely explain the joy I feel when DJing…my inner child feels sooo happy Kimberley is present, warm and answering all your questioning, due to her experience she always has the little tip which changes all. I have 1 session left, it will be on zoom or next time she will be around. It’s as easy as that! I highly recommend her training, I feel as excited as confident. Thank you Kimba!
Judith Minnema (NZ):
Kimberley taught me in 5 sessions to be an Ecstatic Dance DJ. I am so grateful for how she held me through my learning process, with knowledge, experience, ease and playfulness. When I DJed my 1st ED event I was excited and confident and able to offer a deep journey for the dancers. So much joy! Thank you Kimberley!
Ebony Beby (Australia):
Since I was a kid I dreamt of being on the stage. I wanted to entertain an audience and make people smile. One day I realised that I really wanted to be a DJ. I had always loved that sort of music and I would always watch them play at clubs, secretly wishing that was me. I told Kimberley about this in a 1:1 session and she told me about how she could teach me all about Ecstatic Dance DJing. I didn’t know much about Ecstatic Dance at the time but now it is a big part of my life. Kimberley has taught me all there is to know from how to facilitate Ecstatic Dance, DJing on your controller and to picking songs that make your butt move. Kimberley has been my biggest cheerleader and has helped me build up my confidence. Kimberley is an awesome teacher who is invested in your success. The best thing for me is having such a passionate, experienced and creative mentor. Each week I look forward to my session and hearing about all of Kimberley’s exciting Ecstatic Dance stories.
