Time & Location

About the event
A Femme-Powerment Dance and Cacao Ceremony showcasing three talented new women-identifying aritsts.
Mother Void, Afton Rose and Danusu all had the same dream: to share their unique expression of self through the medium of music, and to make people come alive through dance.
When Aria Tau put out the call, challenging women to join her DJ Dojo, they courageously answered! The challenge was this: learn to DJ, create a unique mix, and perform it LIVE! All in JUST 6 WEEKS!
What will they create? We invite you to join us to witness their creations, dance your heart out, and join a witchy initiation ritual to welcome them into small-but-courageous order of women-identifying DJs.
Overcoming technology hurdles, self-doubt and the inner perfectionist, these three inspiring women have created sets that reflect their journey of finding their authentic voice through music and finding the courage to step out into the light and say, "I was born to lead! Lead as a divinely feminine, musical dancefloor Queen!"
Come and witness the magic that is created when women work together to support and empower each other to create! Perhaps this event will be the catalyst that inspires you to go after YOUR beautiful dreams!
