jan 15 - 24, 2021 (10 Days)

Ecstatic Dance is serving to awaken and unite the tribe, world-wide. Once a fringe subculture, our ED community has grown into a global movement that grooves, uniting and healing, inspiring and revealing the power of free-form dance as a journey toward wholeness, empowerment, and ecstasy.


These journeys are a map of self-discovery through the terrain of the body into the heart, past the mind into another dimension of existence, a dimension we call a unified field, where magic is real.


Raio and Sophie Sôfree are pouring all of their tools they’ve cultivated over years of dedication into a 10 day online Ecstatic Dance DJ Training, taking place jan 15 - 24, 2021 to empower you with the tools to step forth into becoming an Ecstatic Dance DJ.

This online interactive Ecstatic Dance DJ Training combines the focused instructional power of exclusive video tutorials with daily group workshops, Q&A’s and assignments to offer you the best possible learning experience, regardless of where you live.


The course has been designed into 7 modules over 10 days of training (with 3 day offs for practice). You retain access to both the video tutorials as well as recordings of the group and individual sessions for 90 days, so you can review any segment as you integrate the course.

And to stay on the pulse of the times, we’ve included a bonus chapter on how to stream online ecstatic dances.

You will receive:

  • 7 Modules (More than 30 hours) of instructional videos on Traktor DJ & Facilitator Skills (Using Traktor Pro 3)

  • 7 Workshops and Q&A calls with Raio & Sophie Sôfree

"I am so happy I listened to the calling and booked this course. It was so much more than I could have hoped for. Sophie and Rob's leadership was amazing and I felt very supported technically and energetically. Even though I have never met them in person, I feel like I have new teachers and friends for life. Their tutorial videos were extremely thorough and clear and I am enjoying reviewing the content to deepen in my learning. I look forward to the day we can all meet and dance together in person."
