Frankonian Fusion Retreat 2024
SAVE THE DATE!!!
All information on this page is preliminary, but please put down the dates in your calendar.
Join our group of warm-hearted dancers at our very special Fusion dance retreat near Regensburg. A magical time of fusion dance classes, parties and many other amazing experiences. Spend up to 8 days at a baroque monastery with amazing teachers and many wonderful dancers. The event takes place from the 14th to 21th July 2024.
We want to create a space giving you the possibility to connect to yourself and other dancers. The retreat format gives you the opportunity to create deep connections as we will dance, eat, sleep and spend time with each other.
The first 4 days focus on dance classes, learning and growing as a dancer, while the second half of the week has a focus on connection, parties and community. During registration you will be able to book the first half of the week (focus classes/learning), the second half of the week (focus party, skill shares, community) or the whole week during registration.
The event is cocreative and lives from your participation. We have found a solution so that each person can help and contribute to the extent that fits them.
This is a family friendly event. Children and non-dancers are very welcome to the event and there is lots of stuff to do around the monastry not involving dancing. Get in touch with us if you are thinking to bring your family along and we will figure out how to make it the best possible experience for you.
WHAT IS FUSION DANCING
Fusion Dancing welcomes people from different dance styles to mix up and dance together. The dance is not based on any predefined steps and movements instead you improvise together. This puts a spotlight on your connection to your dance partner and to the music. Every dance can be a new interaction and a new individual style. Fusion can be danced to a whole variety of different music styles.
We will have a party every night starting on Wednesday (17.7.). Sunday to Tuesday (14.-16.7.) evening there will be also some dancing but not as much as the other nights.
Yera & Leonilde
We are very happy we will have Yera & Leonide, two amazingly talented contemporary dancers, as our teachers.
We are planing to have 2 additional teachers in our line up.
We will publish a detailed schedule closer to the event.
