A COSTA RICA A BAILAR:
Learn how to dance Salsa-Merengue-Cumbia-Bolero!
Costaricans are happy people and they love to dance. Dancing in Costa Rica also means to experience the countries mentality closely and intensively. During this tour Latinamerican rhythms are the center of interest . Profesional dance teachers will help you to get familiar with the steps of Salsa, Merengue and Bolero as fast as posible. Dance lessons will be given in a pavilion in the tropical hotel garden.
The capital of San José with its traditional dance saloons, where people between 15 and 75 years dance and listen to live bands which play hot rhythms, provide an authentic frame for our dance course.
You are staying at the ecological built and managed hotel EL MARA located in the small town of Ciudad Colón in a dense garden with an impressing view to Poás volcano. Beside the dancing classes you have the opportunity to visit the famous Gold museum, markets and parks of San José, enjoy cultural performances or hike through National Parks. In the hotel our staff will help you to organize whatever you want - as well to travel around the country after finishing the dance course.
You can combine the dancing clases with a spanish course: There is a language school integrated in the hotel, so you could take Spanish classes in the morning and dancing classes in the afternoon or the other way round.
Sunday: Arrival in San José - we´ll pick you up and bring you to the hotel EL MARANON Monday: Tropical breakfast and relax from the journey; in the afternoon starts the dancing course: for the following 5 days daily 3 hours of dancing classes, starting with body exercises and training of the rhythm feeling. A professional dance teacher shows you steps and figures, which you will study with the other course participants- accompanied and corrected by the teacher.
On Wednesday evening we will visit a dancing saloon with live music in San Jose, where we can practice our skills and learn some more from Costaricans: No problem if we do not yet posess their routine and perfection, we will have learned enough to have a lot of fun!
