Dance & Wellness Retreat

Our 1 day wellness retreat is designed for any dancer looking to increase their confidence, connection and expression in their dance.

 

Whilst we are centred towards west coast swing dancers, the day is designed to help any dancer embody their true self into their dance.
Is the day for me?


Do you dance, are you human and do you have a passion for growth and learning? Then this day is for you!


Our goal is not just to give you technique to improve your dance, but to help reset the stories you hold about yourself and your dance.

 

Connection starts from within and until we are fully connected to ourselves we can not connect to our partners, the music or the dance.

The day will include both dance and wellness workshops on:

  • Goal setting

  • Embodying emotion in dance to create a more expressive experience

  • Creating next level connection to self, the music and our partners

  • Creating confidence - breaking through limiting beliefs

  • Breathwork for release, transformation and connection - With thanks to Kai for Elemental Empowerment

  • Tools/ techniques for improving your mood, mindset and movement (see our handy booklet at www.westcoastswingwellness.com or below)

  • Empowerment exercises

  • 3 hours of dance workshops

  • 3-4 hours wellness, empowerment and confidence workshop

  • 3 hours of evening freestyle

  • Shared dinner in the evening ([please bring food to share)

 

 

The retreat will run 11 til around 6 when we will break to share food in the grounds.

We will then have a freestyle in the evening to practice all we have learnt 7.30 till 11pm.

If you only want to attend the freestyle please send us a PM to let us know. Payments will be on the door.

 

We welcome all levels of dancers from all styles of dance. We ask that you come with an open mind and a heart so that you can take that which is useful to you from the day, discard what is not and be open to allow yourself to add that which is uniquely your own.

 

We actively encourage you to take your learnings back to your wider dance community to allow others to become empowered in themselves and embodied in their dance. 

What do I need to bring?

  • An open heart and mind and a good dose of curiosity

  • Notebook and pen 

  • Water - there will be tear and coffee and drinking water to refill

  • Yoga mat if you have one - for the breath work

  • A blanket and pillow and jumper (for the breathwork session)

  • Comfortable clothing for the retreat, whatever you like for the freestyle

  • Food to share in the evening, this could be a snack, a soft drink or a medium portion of something you'd like to eat and share, it doesn't need to be huge.
