About this trip

Join Performer, Choreographer, and Dance Instructor, Abagail Fritz in the UNLEASH YOUR MAGIC Dance Retreat .  A very special event designed to help you (re)connect with the wisdom of your body and unleash your magic from within.


Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned dancer, dance is your birthright, and an amazing way to (re)connect with your inner knowing, nurture well-being, and ignite your creativity. This retreat offers you 5 days, 8 classes and 10 hours of Afro Fusion dance; invigorating movements inspired by African and Diasporic dances with percussive rich music from Africa and beyond. Your retreat facilitator, Abagail, will lead you in dance and share her 22+ years of experience practicing various styles of African dances.


Each morning will begin with a gentle warmup that focuses on mobility, then move into foundational dance steps as we build up the momentum into a follow-along dance session. After an afternoon of free time to explore, we’ll join together again to hone in our sense of self expression through dance with a fun choreography that we’ll build on throughout our time together. This will be fun, exciting, and there will be something for everyone! 


All levels are welcome and steps can be modified as needed for different levels. As we sharpen our sense of personal expression and what we want to “say” through our movement, we’ll have the option to record a creative group video at the end of the retreat, sharing some of the movement phrases  and choreography we learned over our time together.


We look forward to seeing you there!

About Our Host Site, Amansala

AMAN:PEACE / SALA:WATERS

Amansala is Sanskrit named after the peaceful crystal clear waters of Tulum, and to this day it is still one of Tulum's most iconic, eco-chic boutique hotels. Amansala was founded on the belief that a true vacation is one where you come back looking and feeling better than when you arrived. 


Amansala is a full service resort that puts equal emphasis on indulgence as it does on the restoration of the mind, body and spirit.  They use natural materials and resources to create simple yet beautiful rooms, a menu full of fresh delicious food and an atmosphere that feels more like staying at a friends beach house than a hotel.


We believe in creating an experience that centers around the natural beauty and resources unique to Tulum.
