Once you've landed in Marrakesh, you'll join the Etu Dance crew for this epic five-day dance retreat guaranteed to make you feel fit, energised and revived. We hope you're ready for an action-packed time as we show you the sights of Marrakesh too!
You don't need us to tell you that dancing makes you feel great, so we've built our timetable and classes around amazing music and choreography. Our fantastic dance teachers Laura, Ella and Chris have created classes that will have you hip-hopping and jamming away in no time.
You do not have to be a 'professional dancer to join this trip', everyone is welcome, including total newbies, and this dance retreat is great for solo travellers! We'll be blasting the house, hip-hop, dancehall, and electro beats to bring your sessions to life.
If you think you can't find affordable luxury dance retreats, think again. The Iberostar Club Palmeraie Marrakech is 30 minutes from Marrakesh Menara Airport and 20 minutes from the Medina (town centre), and this swish four-star hotel is our perfect base for this active adventure.

Ella's Groove on the Move is the ultimate high-energy cardio dance class that perfectly blends hip-hop and house genres! Lace up your dancing shoes, and join us for a heart-pumping, body-moving, and soul-boosting dance party like no other!

With high-energy routines set to music that needs no introduction, you'll learn the full choreography and then unleash your fierce moves on the dance floor. Bring your A-game to this class led by Laura, then ignite the floor and dance like a music video pro!
Dirty Flirty (Beats) with Chris

Unleash your inner dancer in this electrifying class that will make you sweat, smile, and dance like nobody's watching! Led by Chris, this class will have you breaking out your best moves as you vibe to the banging beats and infectious bass drops.
Workout Away Revive - Yoga Inspired Stretching Class
Revive is our signature yoga-inspired stretching class that anyone can do. You don't have to be a traditional yogi to fall in love with this restorative session.
You'll practice energising sun salutations to develop full-body strength and flexibility. You'll challenge balance and coordination with powerful standing stretches and move through seated twists to alleviate stress and restore energy levels.
So this is what you can expect from your Etu retreat. As you can see, there’s plenty to keep you busy, active and feeling great!
All classes are optional and included. You may want to get involved in everything, but we understand that everyone needs a bit of me-time too.
