Dream Retreat is a residential facility that hosts small groups of womxn drummers in a 3-day immersive experience. A place where it is possible to tune out life and fully dedicate yourself to drumming. It is an environment that fosters learning from one another, the opportunity to dive into the creative language of drumming, and the space to face our challenges head-on; sticks in our hands morning til night. It is a drumming sanctuary where life-long friendships are formed.

The facility is located in El Paso, TX at the border between three states and two countries. The studio contains professional grade video- and audio-recording capabilities allowing each drummer to own a high quality video showcasing their playing at the end of their stay. We all learn from one another and push each other to be better drummers, performers, and humans. Instruction from world renowned drummers (Anika Nilles, Mike Johnston, and more) via remote lessons is coordinated each camp.





Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

– Margaret Mead
