Salsa Summer Camp
Week 30: Sun 21nd - Sat 27th July 2019
If you like Salsa and Cuban rhythms, this is where it happens! Come and get a lot of inspiration and Salsa in the summer holiday by Præstø, South Zealand, Denmark.
We have held the Salsa Summer Camp since 2004, and have classes for all levels. Everyone can participate, singles and couples.
Join us for an experience for life, meet new people, and learn a lot of dance. Salsa has come to stay, and when you have first tried it, we guarantee that you will get hooked :-)
There will be 5 different levels: Beginners, Improvers, Intermediate, Advanced, Very advanced
If you have any doubts about your dance level, see our guide under dance descriptions.
There are 4 1/2 hours of daily classes with breaks two times a day. At this camp, we have one big camp with all levels together. The classes are in different rooms.
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.
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 noon 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 finding a friend, that will join, as we always pursue to have an equal amount of men and women. If you already take dance lessons, you can ask one from your dance class, if the Salsa Camp could be something for them. You shift dancing partners all the time, on every class, so everyone will get to dance with a lot of different people (also those who sign up with a dance partner).
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 you, who already dance, we always have a lot of new to bring to the table. The classed are very inspiring and fun.

Accommodation at Bosei
The Salsa Camp will be held one hour drive from Copenhagen, at the beautiful Idrætshøjskolen Bosei, Evensølundvej 5, 4720 Præstø
We found this fantastic high school, with great surrounding and with the most beautiful facilities. Last year was our first year here and all the students were super happy with the place!
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.
As a participant you can make use of all the facilities without extra charge.
There are room for 160 participants that stay at Bosei. There are 50 double rooms and 43 single rooms, together with 15 tent spots (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 registration for women, until we can see that it is offset. Then we open up for registration of women again.
Participate without accommodation
It is also possible to participate only at the course, and all the activities, without staying at Bosei.
