Dancing vacations are a wonderful way to indulge and develop your passion, be it for salsa, tango or flamenco. You may already be an experienced amateur dancer hoping to sharpen your technique with the help of expert instructors, or you might be an enthusiastic beginner looking to start a new hobby. But there is another fantastic benefit to taking a dancing vacation, which is that they also promise a fun and authentic way to immerse yourself in local culture.
Dancing is a form of language, where gaining fluency can be both challenging and immensely fun. And like many languages it can sometimes be tricky to untangle a dance’s actual roots.
Ideal for solo travelers as well as couples or groups of friends, relaxed but constructive workshops where everyone is accompanied by a professional partner introduce you to the origins and techniques of famous dances, and explore how they fit in with local culture. And, in countries such as Cuba and Colombia, lessons can also be combined with exciting evenings out to popular nightspots where you can show off your moves.
