Rain was an excellent performer at my sons 5th birthday party. She was great with the kids, safe, and communicative. I would highly recommend her and will keep her in mind for future events.
Rain and her assistants gave us a magical and amazing performance. They were the highlight of the evening!
Loved watching the performance. We had missed live entertainment and this did not disappoint. I want to see more!!!
We love having Desert Rain as apart of our managing team!
She is skilled both on the stage as a performing artist, and off of the stage while apart of production & tech crews. Highly recommend!
I've hired Desert Rain for many events I've thrown. She is always the star of the show.
She is a professional and handles large amounts of fire in a beautiful and safe way.
I highly recommend her to add spark to your next event, gig, or creative project.
Rain provided an amazing performance. Her detail in the work she did ignited my evening and brought so much joy to the party. She is awesome and I reccomend her often for parties and private events.

.:. When teaching, Rain’s mission statement is to revitalize the dry crevices of our anatomy through embodied expression. Her philosophy is that if we can allow our bodies to flow, then the internal movement will translate into flow of stagnant energy held within. She often hears from people, “I can’t dance,” and Rain’s goal is to create a container that feels spacious and expansive for people to experience their unique expression through somatic movement. In this space, Rain holds that one may connect with their emotional state in a new, profound way. Ultimately, Rain’s mission is to create opportunities for one to optimize their health by integrating their mind-body-soul connection and bringing them in alignment with their highest sense of YES!
