OUR SALSA RETREATS
We are a community of professional dancers who’d love to take people on a journey to learn salsa in Colombia. Colombia has a huge array of festivals in which dance always plays a major part. So, we thought we would take you to them, show you our culture and teach you some salsa dance in the process.
Our Retreats revolve around some of Colombia’s biggest festivals. The idea is to show you how we celebrate our culture, identity and all the diversity that makes our country so interesting and unique. We have retreats in Medellin, Cartagena, Bogotá, and Cali. Come join us!
How it works Our retreats are an immersive cultural experience that usually lasts for 1-4 weeks. We will provide you with dance instruction and accommodation. You will have a small group of people to hang out with, go on some tours and visit the most important events in the festival.
Latin Dance in Colombia is at the very backbone of every celebration. People dance at every corner and our festivals are some of the most colorful and cheerful events. this is the perfect chance to practice your dance skills, have an amazing time and give yourself a much-deserved break.

Just in case you want to make your retreat a bit more juicy, we've included a couple of options that can help you do just that. They all come at an extra cost.

Airport pickup: You’ll probably be tired, with your luggage in a new country, new language… We’ll pick you up and help you get settled in your selected accommodation. We also do pick-ups from bus terminals.
Salsa Night Out: This is a great activity to do if you’re new in a Colombian city, one of our instructors will meet you up and take you out on a social dancing/bar hopping night!
Extended Retreat: All of our retreats have an initial fixed duration, but if you love it so much you can always buy a dance pack with more class hours and stay for as long as you want to!
Salsa Show: We also give our students the opportunity to work on a choreography to showcase either at the dance studio, a local salsa bar or even in the whole city, why not? Check our page to find out more!
