DancEscapade is a three day dance getaway on the Greek island of Crete, that aims to bring dancers together who share a common love for movement, nature, culture, amazing food and sun and fun.
Please note that the DancEscapade Weekend in Crete has been postponed to 21-22-23rd of May, 2021.
(Pre-)Enrollments will open soon via this page – Limited number of participants!
This unique collaboration between Bellydance Superstar Boženka, who hosts this project in her home studio by the sea, and Belgian Superstar Khalida, who is sought out for teaching Oriental style as well as other disciplines fused into her classes, brings together an array of dancers from all over Europe. A weekend of working on technique, sharing dance performances and meeting new friends is what it is all about.
Multi-levels of dance training meld together to form an incredible atmosphere of learning and understanding. Group discussions are part of the curriculum too, allowing it to be an unforgettable and intimate experience. We welcome dancers from all walks of life to join our community of those who find joy in dance.
An inspiring break in a wonderful place – We can dance with amazing teachers and rest on the beach.
