Access to over 100 tried and tested tunes for dancing (including 3 preset playlists) 

You will have access to all of this for 1 year: It’s up to you how long you would like to take. I personally would recommend taking 13 weeks this will mean you can stay in the flow completing one component a week with about an hour a day spent on practicing your learnings and journaling your experience. The beauty of this however is that you can really go at your own pace, and if you are juggling many aspects of your life, you can carve out the time whenever you can.

Ecstatic Awakening Dance may appear to be 21st century invention, but the free form of ecstasy inducing rituals & movement have been around for thousands of years. Globally people have always come together to dance in celebration, in bonding a community and simply to just let loose the burdens of an often otherwise mundane life. Through the ages, dance has taken on many forms and been embraced and rejected by whole cultures, religions and Societies.

The School of Ecstatic Movement is celebrating 16 years of delivering a standard of excellence through its teacher training & workshops.  With the resurgence of interest in practices that can allow us to drop out of our busy stress filled lives in a time leveraged way and tune into what feeds us, Physically, Emotionally, mentally and spiritually; Ecstatic Awakening Dance has come of age.

Interested in a fully immersive residential experience?….


The School of Ecstatic Movement is celebrating 16 years of our comprehensive Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ Teacher Training. The way we deliver our training has changed a bit over those years, but we know how much our hundreds of students over the years have both enjoyed and been transformed by the residential element of the training. So while sitting on a rock on the beach in Pelion, Rebecca had the idea to offer a stand-alone retreat that has all the favourite bits of the previous residential module.

  • Ceremonies
  • Shamanic Healing
  • Rituals
  • And of course lots of Ecstatic Awakening Dance!


The main difference is that now the retreat has no examination element, it is crafted specifically to allow the participants a deeply transformative experience for themselves, and is open to anyone with some experience of Ecstatic Dance.


This residential retreat is limited to 15 participants and 10 of these spaces are held exclusively for teachers, to ensure a warm and secure healing environment for women and men.  The retreat is fully inclusive of food and shared rooms. Although the experience is fully immersive there will be plenty of time for relaxation to enjoy the nourishing surroundings of Hertfordshire countryside and for this reason we have decided to open places for partners, friends and family to accompany participants. Those guests will be invited to participate in as many workshops and sessions as they choose to.

This retreat is led by the Director of The School of Ecstatic Movement Rebecca Hanscombe and assisted by other skilled Ecstatic Awakening Dance™ Teachers who are graduates of the training.

The next all-inclusive 7 day retreat will be at our purpose built retreat centre on the Pelion peninsular. Here you will be nurtured Mind, Body, Heart and Soul by our community, cozy fireside conversations, and our dynamic integrated intensive approach to dance, healing, ceremony and shamanism.

Dates will be released soon.
