The VALLETO Dance and Heal intensives happen twice a year; once during summer time in New York City, and the other during winter time in Miami. They are global, inclusive, transformative incubators + dance training programs that combine dance, holistic methods, and the experience of collaborating with other dancers, with a performance experience for a live audience (summer intensive only).

"I found the effects of the intensive even weeks later, rewiring my brain into new ways of thinking and appreciating both myself and the people around me. Experiencing and communicating constantly with the other individuals was more powerful than I realized at the time."

Heal + Dance Edition:

This course is designed for all humans who crave to be in a safe and intimate space for unapologetic self- expression and movement exploration. This exploration involves several modalities we utilize in VALLETO choreographic processes such as improvisation, conversation, acting methods, meditation, partnering, embodied and somatic practices, sound, and more.

Our mission is to inspire the participants to believe in themselves fully. This workshop is made to support you in your own healing journey and to accelerate and bring to life those desires that you hold and dream.


Our Core Values: Liberation, Self-Expression, Autonomy, Curiosity, Trust, Safety, Sisterhood, Safety, Inclusivity, Movement Research, Empathetic Listening,
Communication, Integrity, Fun and Respect.

Our intentions are:

To create a supportive and loving community.
To connect with our intuition, our inner self, our truth & our power.
To express ourselves fully, and be witnessed with love.
To connect and explore our feminine power.
To reclaim our voice and bodies.
To learn healing and holistic modalities.
To empower you.
To prioritize our pleasure and self-care.
To unleash your sensuality.
To dance our souls out.
To create a positive transformative experience.
If you choose to be part of this space you agree to:

Honor your Bodies and Needs

"Working with VALLETO has been a source of rich, inquisitive stimulation that has opened my mind to what might be possible for the future of collaboration, art, and movement. As the world adapts to the “new normal” everywhere we turn, it gives me hope that movers across the globe have not lost the desire to exercise their creative and physical muscles, finding ways to keep the spirit of dance alive. I am inspired by this team of artists, and I have been reminded that movement has the power to heal us all and this is what unites us. I was drawn to VALLETO for their genuine efforts to amplify female-identifying voices, and give them a place where they feel liberated, supported, and ready to take risks. Every day I am examining what it means to unapologetically be myself, and I feel I am getting closer to the answer through this collaboration with VALLETO."

"I never expected to be a part of something so real. The environment we have created in VALLETO has allowed me to experience this entire process with honesty and to give full-bodied attention to the work, to the cast, and to myself."

"Working with Valleto is always intense. Val is an intense person herself, and she embraces this part of her in her work. Her deep connection to her sexuality and her mission to unleash the inner sexual demon we all have in us allows a unique experience to shine through. Working with Val makes you realize you’re more badass than you know. She does this with incredible finess and ease, like she was made to bring about kings, queens and majestic beings in the world through her wild mind and incredibly emotional workshopping. Valleto is otherworldly."

"I feel like I grew so much from this intensive, not just as a dancer, but as a human being. We really pushed ourselves physically, but I always felt safe and supported. Everybody involved was able to tap into this really beautiful vulnerability and have the support of everybody in the room. Those moments are so magical because it is so rare and truthful. You feel safe to take risks and push beyond your limits because you know everybody is there for you."
