INTENSIVE DANCE BOOTCAMP
You’ll level up your dance Skills and get on an ongoing training regime. You’ll have classes every day of the week (Mon – Fri). Our Intensive Dance Bootcamp starts from 15h per week and you can personalize the intensity at will and learn a mix of Latin dance styles if you wish to do so. You can come for as long as you want, though most people stay between 2 and 8 weeks. You can also stay in just one city or move around. We are in Medellin, Cali, Bogota, and Cartagena. All Levels are Welcome!
CULTURAL GROUP RETREATS
Generally, our Group Retreats revolve around Colombia’s major dance/cultural festivals. You’ll get to experience Colombian culture at its best, learn some salsa dance and make friends in the process. We curate a group of people excited to let loose, dance, and have a great time! Groups Retreats offer personalized dance instruction just like our Intensive Dance Bootcamps, the only difference is a fixed duration and a more social experience. All Levels Welcomed!
