Salsa Summer Camp
If you like Salsa and Cuban rhythms, this is where it happens!
We have held the Salsa Summer Camp since 2004. We have classes at all levels - both beginner-intermediate, intermediate, advanced and very advanced. Everyone can participate, both singles and couples.
Come and get new inspiration! at the Salsa Højskole in South Zealand, in Denmark.
Join us for an experience for life, meet new people, and learn a lot of dance.
Week 30: Sunday 21nd - Saturday 27th July 2019
There will be 5 different levels:
- Very advanced
If you have any doubts about your dance level, see our guide under dance descriptions.
There are 4,5 hours of classes daily with pauses two times a day. (The classes are in different rooms).
The classes are very intensive. You will on the course besides Salsa, also learn a little: Reggaetón, Bachata, Son, Afro-Cuban dance and Rumba. These dances will only be danced in the afternoon. Before that, there will only be taught Salsa.
You don’t need to have a dance partner to participate, but it is always a good idea to try to find a friend, that will join., as we always pursue to have the equal amount of men and women. If you go to dancing classes, you can ask one from your dancing team, if the Salsa Camp could be something for them. You shift dancing partners all the time, on every team, so everyone will get danced with a lot of different people.
To you, who have never tried to dance Salsa before, we can say, that everyone who went to the Salsa Camp last year, have learned to dance when the camp was over.
To all your, who already dance, we always have some new to bring to the table. The classed are very inspiring, and fun to do.
The teachers at this camp
Diana Rodriguez Garcia, Yorgenis Danger Garcia, Solangel Fernandez, Yoli Mendez Brown, Saul Perez Valdes, Yaima Viera Palli, Demis Camagüey, Anier Sanchez Sandoval and Stine Ortvad. Our assistance teachers are Rachel Morales Garcia, Yunier Oviedo Robertson and Henri Benítez Hourrutinier.
Earlier years when we were at Rødkilde Højskole, we had the levels split up in different weeks. In these videos, you can get an impression. At this camp, we have one big camp with all levels together. (The classes will be at different rooms).
Accommodation at Idrætshøjskolen Bosei
We found this fantastic high school, which is only one hour drive from Copenhagen. Great surrounding and with the most beautiful facilities. Last year was our first year here and all the students enjoyed the place!
The Salsa Summer Camp will be held at the address:
We have previously held the camp at Møn Friskole, Rødkilde Theater High School and a single year at Langebæk Course and Retreat Center - so we have been around a lot. But this new place is definitely the best place to date.
Facilities at Bosei
The main building was originally a sanatorium, and since they have expanded with Japanese inspired buildings. There is a swimming hall, work out centre, several activities- and sports rooms, and fantastic natural environment. There is also a Japanese library, creative workshop, music room and much more. Around the buildings, there is woods, a soccer field, tennis courts and more. It is not far away from the ocean, so it is possible to also take a beach trip.
This year there will be space for approx. 158 participants in total (last year there was space for approx. 115 participants). There are 50 double rooms and 43 single rooms. There is room for 15 tents (not big family tents, or caravans).
Every year we have 30% couples and 70% singles from all over the country, and the rest of Scandinavia, and a few from the rest of Europa, that participates in our fantastic salsa camp.
We are always striving to get the number of women and men to match so that there is an even distribution. If we can see that there is a smaller number of women, we will close sign up for women, until we can see that it is offset. Then we open up for registration of women again.
Participate in all our activities, without accommodation
It is also possible to participate only at the course, and all the activities, without staying at Idrætshøjskolen Bosei.
