Dance Away Mexico 2012 Feb. 6-12th

Last year I had the pleasure of teaching at Dance Away Mexico in beautiful La Manzanilla, a small seaside village on the Pacific coast about 4 hours South of Puerto Vallarta. The retreat was created by dancer/herbalist Sheelagh Mackenzie back in 2009. Sheelagh has been visiting and teaching dance in La Manzanilla for many years and is a wonderful, knowledgeable host. Past 'Dance Aways' have featured the fabulous Lynette Harper. This year all three of us will be co teaching and we have added 2 extra days of dancing!

An amazing get-away, filled with joyful dance in a seaside rooftop studio, evening dance parties, and lots of time for relaxation. This is our 4th year of holding this super fun and fabulously inspirational event. If you love to dance please join us.
