    I love what Alicia brings to teaching and the space she creates for us. There is so much permission to be ourselves. Great feedback. And she CARES. So deeply. All the time. She brings out the best in us.

    Alicia is so inspiring. Sometimes she teaches lessons that are so profound in the moment that I am a bit amazed at what just happened.

    - So inspiring.

    Next to surfing, great sex and love, there is nothing else that feels as amazing to me as delivering a good performance to a super responsive audience. Last Friday, in our final class performance was one of those nights. Biggest of thanks to: Alicia Dattner for holding the space, providing accountability and giving great feedback to help me create a piece that was authentic and light, my fellow Solo Showdown compadres. -Cory Reddish

    - Big Thanks!

    Alicia is a brilliant facilitator, and Tuesday is my new favorite day of the week. After three sessions, I’m already getting exactly what I hoped for from workshop. I’m grateful for her for her skill, her care, her gentleness, her power and her wisdom.

    - My favorite new day of the week!

  • Testimonial

    I’m blown away by Alicia’s ability to work with everyone’s material each week. She sees the potential and very eloquently and gracefully guides students in ways I would never have thought of. I am so impressed! I just love her approach. She makes this very confronting, scary work safe and less scary. She’s created a beautiful container for the essence of who we are to emerge.

    - I’m blown away.

    Thank you Alicia for the light you shined to lead us to meaningful accomplishment in our lives. You were a wind under our wings. Your continued guidance inspired everyone to soar.

    - Keep shining!

    Alicia, your workshops are deep, soulful, soul-digging adventures that take you through some dark parts of yourself. Then, with the wise and loving support of Alicia and the group, you discover new parts of yourself that have been waiting for many years to be expressed. Alicia provides the safest container for this new aspect to emerge and the professional guidance to create something with it that inspires on stage. It’s been one if the scariest and most rewarding experiences of my life. I love you Alicia and the work you do!

    “THANK you all for your love and support – you have no idea what it has meant to me. Actually, all of you probably know exactly what it has meant. Alicia Dattner thank you for everything you’ve done to help convince me I can actually do this.”

    -E. R.

    - I can actually do this!
