I can honestly & openly say, that in all my years and love of dancing, yoga, meditation and therapy, I have never felt so free of mind and more deeply connected to myself and my body than I have done over this past 9 months. The more I embrace this practice, the more I fall in love with it as both willing participant, releasing and expressing and humble teacher transforming and I truly hope I will do it justice and be able to help others as deeply as I have felt and experienced myself.

"The most special of times, places and people. I knew the dancing would be hot and the teaching passionate, but didn't expect to find my misplaced optimism in life there too. A privilege. "

"This training has given me the confidence to step forward in LIFE and in becoming an ecstatic awakening dance teacher. I had no idea I would walk away with so many lessons and a deeper understanding of myself as I have. "Being self-conscious isn't serving anyone, especially yourself." This is one of many wise quotes that have stuck with me from the training and I hope to carry it with me for years to come. Thank you Rebecca and Zoe, for your infinite wisdom and the ability to hold such a safe space for such incredible transformation to happen. I'm forever grateful!"

"The course is dynamic and packed full of theoretical knowledge and practical exercises. It teaches you how to create a safe and encouraging space for others to take a journey of self-exploration and self-expression through the power of movement, breath and meditation… Rebecca is a brilliant teacher. She is honest, passionate and deeply committed to the growth of her students. I felt much supported by her and by her amazing assistant, Zoë, throughout the whole training."

"I was a little hesitant to go along at first after far too many weirdy festival dancing experiences. But I reminded myself that I loved dancing and I loved music (and really, I wasn’t exactly overwhelmed with invitations for nights out any more!) and went along to the WCC. I had the most brilliant time – nothing odd, nothing heavy, nothing to be freaked about. Just some really great (loud!) music, fantastic tunes and the chance to really dance. Doesn’t really get much better or easier than that!”

"Ecstatic Awakening Dance has been a bit of a life changer for me! People say it's a journey, talk of 'inner peace', but having taken 9 months to dedicate to myself, to shake and move my limbs, I now feel ALIVE, probably for the first time in over 30 years. With this training you form a tribe, a community who dance alongside you all safely watched over by Rebecca and Zoe, the Queens of space holding and bliss making. If you love and honour yourself then this is the journey for you, into the realms of joy awakening, you shake your body and shake it all up... Don't take my word for it get to a class and see for yourself or better still teach your own!"

"I wanted to say a big thank you. You held space sooooo beautifully despite the room being packed. I loved the chocolate, the setting of our intentions, the smudging, I loved the music, I LOVED the sound bathing! What a scrumptious evening, I wanted it to go on forever!"
Gabi | Wild Chocolate Club Malvern
"I think I might have forgotten myself last night…Actually, if I really think about it, I think I might just have just remembered who I am. Wow.”

"This training is one of the most amazing training I have ever done. If you want to improve your skills as a public speaker, this is the best training. I have felt more confident and more grounded after these 10 days. Very powerful. Thank you Rebecca!"

"We had little idea of the challenges, the tears, the laughter, the sisterhood and the release of the furious dancing to come. Rebecca Hanscombe created mirrors for us to truly see our edges, our fears, our holdings and our resistant patterns and then held us as they broke apart. She let us dive in deep into it all. Rebecca then gave us the space and the support to rebuild and strengthen from a place of love."
