It is our promise to you to provide the highest quality authentic experience. And it is our intention to always create a dance retreat that serves the highest and best. We are passionate about sharing the transformative experiences we've felt and witnessed our students experience.
In December of 2016, we took a trip that we always dreamed of, to Habana, Cuba. We longed to be immersed in a culture rich in music, dance and passion. The trip exceeded our expectations and we experienced abundant Habana cornucopia of natural beauty, architecture, and culture permeated by their unique music and dance traditions. We fell in love with learning and dancing Son, bringing a new depth to our understanding of modern Salsa music and dance.
We experienced our hearts opening to the movements in a new way - our physicality, emotionality, intellect and spirituality were all stimulated in a fascinating way. Submerging ourselves so deeply in Son and Cuban culture was an experience that broadened our perspective of dance and emphasized the true healing power of dance. We became fascinated with the idea of sharing dance retreats in Habana, Cuba with our dance community here in Portsmouth, Newburyport and New England.
In 2017/2018, the dream came true as we journeyed with our very first group of students to Habana, Cuba to celebrate our love of dance together. Our student Dance Retreat was a huge success! We trained in Son, Cuban Salsa and Rueda every day, we explored the special culture that is unique to Habana and we expanded our relationships with ourselves, others, the dance and music in a tremendous way.
We danced in the studio, on the rooftop of our casa, in clubs and restaurants, in the streets, at the famous hotels, on the beach and even in the airport! We had a delightful time being together in the experience of dance and life!
Each year, the retreat evolves in beautiful new ways!
Here's your open invitation to journey with us to Habana, Cuba!
We hope you'll join us!
