What makes this event extra special? Small classes and unrivalled access to our teachers.
Consider that there'll be a maximum of around 40 students, and with 5 internationals that's a teacher / student ratio of 1 to 8! We're also all living, dancing, eating, drinking and laughing together over 5 days (3 and 4-day options available too).
The teachers don't disappear to their own private parties during the event because the whole retreat is one private party.
(It's really a big birthday party for Arthur Santos - so you'll be expected to party with him! 😂)
If you're used to huge congresses and snaking queues for the top Brazilian dancers you can see why we're intentionally keeping it small.
Remember our event strapline:
Exclusive. Intimate. Unforgettable.
We really mean that! 😍
The dream has always been to do something a bit different to a standard weekend workshop or congress:
Our Bali Zouk Retreat takes place at the the beautiful tropical Svarga Loka resort, situated in a jungle setting beside a river, and just a few minutes outside Ubud. The resort has 2 pools and a spa onsite as well as a lovely big studio that we'll be holding our yoga sessions, dance practicas and workshops in during the day.
We've designed the event to enable students to get the most quality time with our instructors in smaller class sizes while still being able to enjoy many of the delights Ubud offers.
Your ticket is $750 AUD for the 3-day pass, $1000 AUD for the 4-day pass, or $1250 AUD (around 700 GBP, 795 EUR or 900 USD) for the full retreat. It's more than a standard congress ticket for two important reasons:
1) we include all accomodation, breakfast, transportation, and even some other meals and drinks.
We haven't included all meals to give people the freedom to explore the many wonderful restaurants nearby, and because Bali is so inexpensive. Did you know you can get amazing meals from $2 - $3 USD a walk away from our venue?
2) small class sizes, and amazing access to teachers.
We could have run the week with one set of teachers, but by bringing two international couples and the world's leading Zouk DJ to a small-group retreat we get more magic and unrivalled access to social dancing with world-class Brazilian Zouk dancers, with no queues 😉
Here's all the things your full retreat ticket includes (3 and 4 day options are available too), and for even more information see the schedule:
5 evening parties, including:
33 hours of Zouk dancing including:
You know we said 33 hours? That doesn't even include the afternoon pool parties, and as we have full use of the 2 on-site dance studios for free we can continue to zouk and do private practice through every afternoon at no additional cost!
Your ticket includes:
We'll strive to cater for all preferences - whether you're vegan, vegetarian or omnivore. Bali meals tend to be on the GF/low dairy side and Ubud is famously known for catering to raw / vegan diets so you're in for a pleasant surprise if you're used to inflexible / limited dining options elsewhere.
As part of the final event registration we'll ensure we capture your preferences, allergies and intolerances, and if there are any additional costs or issues with your particular diet we'll let you know in advance.
While we've strived to deliver amazing value-for-money we do not provide:
