​​

I am doing it again ! The first years were beyond what I could ever expect. Everybody gave so much of themselves, so much work and effort that this retreat is becoming a yearly Rendez-vous. And this year, I am adding a day ! October 21-28th 2018. 


WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR THE WEEK ?

Mornings

Of course, I think it’s fundamental to work the technical so there will be an amount of tribal fusion technique. Fundamentals, shimmies, isolations, layering, arm work, ITS,  etc. From basic to more advanced, don’t worry, there will be work and sweat for everyone. Every morning will be focused on Classic Tribal Fusion Technique work. 


Afternoons

By trusting each other we can achieve a lot in the act of opening and letting go.

Again this year, I would love to see us exchange, discuss, share and create together.


I will bring several topics to the table each day and with tools and exercises, we will work on understanding them, expressing them, digging deeper into them. Exploration and study of possibilities.
