Dance Retreat Overview


The retreat will be held in Port Elliot on the Fleurieu Peninsula, located on the coastline between Victor Harbor and Goolwa.  It has a gorgeous natural environment with a sandy beach, a protected cove, and magnificent coastal scenery.  It’s a great spot to walk or swim in early autumn. There are a series of beautiful trails meandering around the cliffs of granite, making for a fantastic stroll. The township has historic buildings, shops, and cafes.


You’ll be staying in Beaumont House, a magnificent, near new holiday house only 100m from Boomer Beach.

The house features open plan living, a contemporary kitchen, reverse cycle air condtioning and heating, and an entertaining deck where the views are simply breathtaking.

Short walk to the shops at Port Elliot either via the road or the waterfront track around to Horseshoe Bay.

With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, accommodation is shared, but that will only add to the sense of connection with other dance lovers that you’ll develop over the retreat.  There are two bedrooms available with queen size beds if you prefer to have a room to yourself (additional $60 for these rooms).

Dance space

The dance activities will be held in the Port Elliot Institute, a spacious, heritage listed building in The Strand, right in the heart of Port Elliot.

Dance Retreat Program

Stretch, move, create

Over the weekend you’ll be part of a very special experience, connecting with other dance lovers and learning much more about dance and your body than you will in your weekly class.

As well as taking some time out to hang out with other dance lovers, the sessions during the retreat will see you moving, stretching and creating.

Saturday and Sunday morning will start with a gentle stretch session designed to bring everyone together to wake up their muscles, and centre your mind and body in preparation for the day.

The retreat program will include:

  • morning stretch session each day
  • dance technique class each day (one day will be jazz, the other contemporary)
  • development of a short dance piece, so you get to experience what it’s like to be a dancer AND learn a bit about how to choreograph and compose dance

All accommodation, meals, and dance sessions are included in the retreat price.

All activities are optional, so you won’t have to do anything you don’t want to.

We’ve got plenty of free time built into the retreat as well so you can unwind and connect with the others sharing your retreat.
