Ibiza’s famed music and dance scene will get a fresh twist this autumn as Santhosh hosts its Ibiza Dance Getaway on September 11-15. The company is renowned for its London dance classes and international wellbeing retreats, with a team of instructors that includes West End stars and professional competitive show dancers.
The getaway – set in Casa La Vista, a luxurious finca surrounded by acres of pine forest on Ibiza’s northern coast – is a celebration of dance, covering everything from salsa to American smooth, bachata, kizomba and tango. The packed programme includes a mix of classes, workshops and private lessons that are open to all levels. Evenings will be spent under the stars, dining on dishes created from local produce and brushing up on techniques through social dancing and show-dance performances.
Guests can opt for a fully inclusive four-night stay at Casa La Vista, including all day and evening classes, workshops and activities, plus a complimentary massage, two private lessons, meals and airport transfers (from £1,750 per person). Those staying elsewhere on the island can dip into the retreat with a package that includes dinners, workshops and social dancing (from £595 per person). Fuelling proceedings, a bar in the evenings will serve a selection of wines, spirits and cocktails (from £8).
True to Ibiza form, it promises to be a vibrant affair. “Santhosh Dance can be everything from a workout through to a life-changing freedom of expression,” says founder Samiya Noordeen. “Everyone finds their own level of fulfilment, but the common theme running through every Santhosh dancer is the feeling of being encouraged, nurtured and inspired.”
