Croatia Sugarpush Swing retreat 2020



We are delighted to announce that our Croatia retreat is going ahead !!

On 11 May Croatia reopened its borders to visitors from the UK, provided they held an accommodation reservation in the country. The UK have also confirmed that Croatia is on their “air bridge” list therefore there will be no requirement to self isolate for a 14 day period. 


In order for us to stay safe Holly and Romayne will challenge you with a range of dance classes designed with safety in mind. We may have to adjust the dance schedule slightly to solo dances these could include, solo jazz, Charleston, Black bottom, soft shoe shuffle and jive solo.


We wanted to reassure you all that we will keep a close eye on updates and for any one who would like to book we encourage you to do so. Full refund will be available incase of any doubt. 

We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the retreat. For anyone wanting to come to Croatia in October there are also still places available and we are working on the assumption that it will be a similar situation.

22nd - 26th of October 2020 


We are delighted to announce that we are going to Dubrovnik, Croatia from the 22nd - 26th of October 2020.


Our home is nestled amongst pinewoods and boasts sea views which you can enjoy from the terrace. It is just a stroll away from the Old City and just 5 mins from the beautiful Bellevue beach. Dubrovnik has been described as “the pearl of the Adriatic”, we will take time to explore the stunning city which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. 


How it works


Sit back, relax and let the good times roll. Your hosts Holly and Romayne have thought of every detail to make this retreat the best one yet! 


You will arrive on Thursday, set your bags down and have time to soak up the sun. That evening we plan to relax on the terrace with a welcome drink provided by yours truly and  enjoy a home cooked dinner at the house. 





Holly France and Romayne Etwaroo will be putting you through your paces, the classes will be challenging, fun, and you will be given lots of one to one attention along the way. We require dancer’s to at least be at improver level. Variations will be given depending on ability and personal requirements. A class description will be added before the retreat. 


 We will walk into Dubrovnik where you can have free time to shop and eat at the local restaurants. We will also have dinner locally one night, other than that all meals will be provided at the house. 


Anyone who has been away with us before can tell you this is set to be a really enjoyable weekend. This weekend is guaranteed to improve your swing dancing in a fun and relaxed environment and is aimed at improvers/intermediate dancers. 



Shared rooms will be will be same sex.

We have a few double rooms for couples, but these are very limited so please book asap to avoid disappointment. 




We pride ourselves on our delicious vegetarian home cooked meals, we will take full advantage of the abundance of fresh local ingredients the area has to offer. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
