Spain Sugarpush Swing Retreat 2020

23rd - 27th of April 2020 

 

We are happy to announce that our 9th Swing dance retreat will be held in Catalonia, Spain from the 23rd - 27th of April 2020.

 

We will be staying in a medieval farmhouse packed with lots of charm! Snuggled between the vineyards of the Penedés which is famous for it’s wine and champagne. The location of the house is perfect for a relaxing stay, it has a beautiful pool and most importantly lots of space for dancing. The house has lots of beautiful features, our favourite is the fortified courtyard that you can see from the halls of the house. It is located 30kms away from Sitges and just an hour away from Barcelona.

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 by the pool with a welcome drink provided by yours truly and  enjoy a home cooked dinner at the house. 

 

 

Classes

 

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 take a day trip to the seaside town of Sitges where reservations for lunch and dinner have been made. We will also go for 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.
