Killer Retreat has been one of the most enrichment experiences of my dance life.
Learning in such a magical location and staying in such a peaceful place, immersed in the nature, with good food, time for practice but also for self-care and surrounded by wonderful women, has been amazing. You’ll came back home with lots of things to work on, with clear explanations about how to enrich your movement quality and also with your heart, mind and soul full of love and inspiration. This retreat is like making yourself a present that will last with you forever. Thank you so much Valenteena for all your teachings and being so generous, I could feel how much you’ve been working and how much you love what you do. Thank you for putting light to my dance path, giving me a structure, for being patience and also encouraging me. And thank you for your trust.

This is most complete dance training that will give you all the fundamentals of Tribal fusion style, Valenteena has researched in all the remarkable actual sources of this discipline, and her love for pedagogy will challenge you always, even in the fundamentals.
The nature, the ancient spaces were it takes place and the food philosophy will involve you completely to connect better with your inner spirit, the power of the group and dance with more precision and passion.
The days on retreat pass so fast doing what you love, but you realize that the magic atmosphere of those days remains with you forever.
Thank you so much Valenteena.

Highly recommended training! I have done Vol. 1 twice and loved it, and now I'm looking forward to completing Vol. 2. The programme is extremely comprehensive and versatile, as Valenteena is incredibly good at adjusting it to everybody's skills, from those who are new to Tribal Fusion to experienced dancers. The individual modules are intense but never frustrating, and they strike the perfect balance between technique, routines and improvisation. Finally, Valenteena is a precise, creative teacher, as well as having a distinctive signature style as a dancer.
