About Us

Join the holiday of a lifetime!

ESCAPE is a dance-focused holiday.

This amazing holiday experience enables you to have everything at your fingertips. Exercise, partying, fun and relaxation all on one resort.

ESCAPE is the only holiday of its kind to focus on dance styles from the African Diaspora, including African, Hip Hop and Dancehall. Led by elite professional dance tutors for a limited no. of guests. It is designed to be a unique, invigorating holistic mind, body and soul experience here to do good and to ensure that you feel great during your time with us (and beyond) by surrounding you with positivity and opportunities to increase your mental and physical wellness.

Are you :
– Lacking energy
– Overreacting to “small” situations
– Finding there aren’t enough hours in the day
– Binge-watching TV (Hey, you, don’t shake your head this includes Netflix)

Any of this sound familiar?

If so, great you are ideal for this holiday opportunity. ESCAPE is here to support you. 

ESCAPE is a place where you are able to be alone (if you so wish) but you will never be lonely. This holiday brings like-minded people together through a programme of high-quality, accessible classes, dynamic evening entertainment, and the fostering of community spirit we create a meaningful, seamless getaway experience with a personal touch. 

Our programming encourages you to take breaks throughout the day. In the midst of you kicking back, having fun and doing some dancing we hope you will gradually feel your tensions dissipating. When you get back home you should find it easier to incorporate breaks into your daily routine eventually increasing your productivity and overall happiness. 

We leave you feeling inspired, motivated and ready to take on the world!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to do all of the classes?

No, you create your ESCAPE experience. You can do as many classes as you wish.

Dance is an integral part of the holiday yes, but if you would rather just relax on the beach and have the classes going on behind you that is just fine. 

The timetable includes a range of classes in different dance styles and different levels. We want you to decide how much you do. We ease everyone in slowly with a Welcome Jam, open to all, but again not compulsory, this is your opportunity to meet all the teachers and get a flavour for how they move and their personalities. 

From there, we go straight into the timetable. You may start the holiday saying you are only going to do one or two classes but once you get into the swing of it and feel the vibe from your new family – you may just change your mind.

How do I get from the airport to the resort?

We arrange bus transfers for all arrivals on 16th May and departures on 23rd May. 

Any arrivals or departures outside of these dates will have to be organised by the customer.

What is the difference between the HOTEL and the APARTHOTEL accommodation?

The hotel accommodation is in the form of suites and are ideal for single guests. 
The aparthotel accommodation can be either a studio or apartments and are ideal for larger groups.

How much do I have to pay to use the resort facilities?

Gym facilities can be used free of charge.
Spa, restaurant facilities can be used at extra cost.

Do I need to be a professional dancer?

Not at all ESCAPE is an opportunity to try various styles and levels of dance in a safe environment. Our teachers are adaptable, empowering and welcoming and encourage people at all levels to try their classes.

I don’t dance at all…can I still be a part of the family?

Of course, hey, cousin!
You do not have to dance if you do not want to, there are swimming pools, gym, restaurants and the beach to busy yourself with. You can come to ESCAPE and purely relax if that’s what you want to do.

Don’t you think I am too old for ESCAPE?

Absolutely not, ESCAPE is for every and anyone open minded and willing to be part of a beautiful community. 

ESCAPE has had attendees (age 10 – age 75) and we welcome anyone even older.

What if life gets in the way and I need to cancel?

These things happen, sometimes things pop up and there is nothing we can do it about it and that is okay. But we’ll be sad to see you go.
