It was around 2007, at my first Mexican Dance camp in Ahuatepec, Morelos that I first heard of Stefan and Bethan’s choreography “Sailing to Paros”, and found out about their yearly dance holiday to that Aegean Island. I loved their dance and the idea seemed so appealing, so enticing… well, it took me twelve years but finally this past June I was able to go and be part of this year’s group, mostly from the UK, a pair from Belgium, and two of us from Canada.
The setting is perfect! A lovely secluded hotel in Paros with all the amenities, including a dance studio, complete with mirrors and a suspended wooden floor! We had morning dance sessions, free afternoons to relax, explore, or swim; went on organized visits to nearby villages, had delicious food, and conviviality!
One of my happiest memories was an early morning dance on the beach, smelling the sea and feeling the gentle breeze on the skin! It took “Morning Glory Sun” to a whole different level! I highly recommend this holiday but act quickly, the holiday retreat accepts a limited number of participants and there are many dancers that return every year!
