Dance & Movement to free your mind and align your body. 

Those dancers who want to perform dance will be instructed by professional choreographers: prior experience with Justin Bieber, Khalid, Nicki Minaj, and more.

Those with little or no dance training will be given exercises to inspire the movement within and to explore new elements of creative expression.

The basics of dance will be taught, so that we can assist in unleashing the creative expression of movement, that leads to a more confident performer. 


The beat of the drum is the core of the heartbeat. 

Rhythm is the grounding force for creative expression. 
Those interested in the beat will be led by musicians and beat makers in the industry. 

Each team will have rhythm as part of their performance piece. as the rhythm is the foundation and grounding for most songs.

Even in acapella songs, there is still a beat to give grounding to the performance piece. 

Each participant will create their own drum. 


The written word, the spoken word, the lyrics to a song, the writing of our feelings unleash the passion that drives us on a daily basis. 

These words can be turned into songs, performance pieces, lyrics to a song, poem, spoken word performance. It will be the choice of the teams to decide which elements of expression to be put into their performance piece.

We have award-winning songwriters on hand, as well as behind the scenes pros that will walk through all the registration and legal processes of creativity and Intellectual Properties. 


Creating daily practices for internal peace and meditation is an important tool to have, so that we can all learn to manage stresses that occur in each of our lives on s daily basis. 

The attendees will learn techniques that will assist them in also overcoming performance anxiety, public-speaking fears, and more.

Certified Neuroscience Experts are on hand to teach techniques that we can use to make our lives peaceful. Parents will also be shown these techniques so that the members of the family continue on the same path.

Join us! We want you to be part of this GWEN initiative of Hollywood Heals…

On the heels of all that has gone on in Hollywood for decades and all that is being exposed, we want to assure you that we are in the forefront of bringing the experts forward to create a healthy creative expression. Each and every instructor & coach has gone through a background check, to assure safety in our camp!


It is imperative that we provide kids (& their families) the necessary tools to help keep them safe.

Alex Riggs is an expert in this arena, creating safety programs that are age appropriate, interactive and focus on Self-Awareness, Prevention, Evasion & Self-Protection.

The core of all of our programs is our trademark “Color Code of Awareness.”™

Alex has taught Safety Programs to thousands of kids-since 2014. She has a preferred “Safety Program” provider
for schools K-12, as well as for Colleges & Universities.

Alex has taught over 700 programs in person & hundreds online! These programs work – for the simple fact that they were born out of a necessity to keep our corporate clients & their family’s safe while traveling through & residing in Red Zones throughout the world. 

Knowledge is power.

Safety Empowerment is good for any person,at any age.

Confidence is driven by knowing what to do with the knowledge that is being trained.

Education empowers the participants, so that their thoughts and reactions are driven by awareness and confidence.

When a child, tween, teen (or adult) is taught Situational Awareness and practices the “Color Code of Awareness”™ (until it becomes second nature), they realize that they have control over these events and their surroundings.

At a minimum, they are prepared to make split-second decisions based on what color threat level they are in at any given moment.


We like to EMPOWER kids to learn situational awareness and how to get help.

The 2nd part of the program focuses on Self-Awareness.

Alex interacts with our attendees, teaching self-protection moves in a fun & friendly fashion. Kids are taught real-world tactics: and the right way to get the help they need in times of need.

Navigating the entertainment industry “on their level” is also taught in a safe and friendly environment. Once they learn the core of our program, kids will be able to navigate any situation calmly and make split-second decisions.

The entertainment module, stresses safety and how to use the tools they now know, to handle tense/stressful situations.

Knowledge is Power. The techniques that they learn, will help them to avoid circumstances and to empower our attendees to make educated, split-second decisions.


Our program focuses on how to stay safe and to Empower teens to learn Situational Awareness, what to do in bad situations and how to get help.

Real-World modules include: Dating Safety, Social Media/Geo-Tagging, Bullying, Cyberbullying, Stalking, Cyberstalking, Alcohol/Drug Misuse and Abuse, Suicide Prevention, Sex Trafficking, Grooming and Staying Safe.

Teens will learn advanced “self-awareness & prevention” as well advanced evasive and self-protection techniques. Bonus modules focus on navigating the “entertainment super highway.” Once they learn the core of our program, teens will be able to navigate any situation calmly and make split-second decisions. The entertainment module, stresses safety and how to use the tools they now know, to handle tense/stressful situations.

Knowledge is Power. The techniques that they learn, will help them to avoid dangerous circumstances. But if a situation does arise, we empower our students to make educated, split-second decisions.


We will be offering the parents/guardians a special opportunity to learn the “Color Code of Awareness” ™ so that they can not only help their kids practice, but also gain the valuable information to help them stay safe as well. We will also cover how to help minor performers — there are actionable things that parents can do to help their kids stay safe at home, school, online, at auditions, events, when traveling and when on the job.

An abbreviated program will be available for the parents to attend. This information is invaluable in helping their child in all facets of safety and security.

Packets will handed out and reviewed during the parents programs. This runs the gamut of possible obstacles that their child might face: bullying, stalking, cyber-stalking, drugs, alcohol, lover-boy/lover girl syndrome (grooming), unwanted advances, how to intervene in bad situations and how to help your child feel empowered to say “no” – even it is costs them the part/job.
