 the lowdown 

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 and Ella 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.

 the classes 

Groove on the Move with Ella


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! This class will have you busting out your best moves as you sweat, groove, and let loose to incredible feel-good music.

Music Video with Laura


Ready to dance like a music video superstar? Inspired by iconic artists like Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and the Pussycat Dolls, this class will make you feel like a true backing dancer. 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)

Get ready to move and groove like never before with Dirty Flirty (Beats) – the ultimate dance class that combines trap, dubstep, and electronic beats for a high-energy, feel-good session! Unleash your inner dancer in this electrifying class that will make you sweat, smile, and dance like nobody's watching! 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.
