Senegalese Retreat with Dance Lessons and Pilates in Toubab Dialao (3 or 5 nights options)
An environment in which art, dance and movement are offered as experiences that nourish the quality of travel and vacation:
Pilates lessons to awaken the body and free the mind from stress; dance lessons with local artists to get in touch with the energy of the place.
All this in Toubab Dialaw: a fishing village on Senegal’s Pétite Côte where a stone’s throw from the airport you can immerse yourself in the peaceful atmosphere of the local population, enjoy the calm beach during the day and lively in the evening, where the best time is at sunset.
When the sun goes down, the energy is lowered and the rosy light floods the sea, sky and earth: a pleasure to remain in contemplation tasting a local juice or beer at one of the hippie-style kiosks. Then continue the evening with live music or dance performances in one of the different cultural realities that over the years have chosen Toubab Dialaw as the location of their activities.
Imagine that you arrive at the international airport in Senegal: on the way out you meet our friendly driver, who will take you to Ker Lep Jamm. You will see the sky of Senegal, the houses and villages on the way to Toubab Dialao:
The magical energy of Africa that you will feel in the air.
Once at Ker Lep Jam, you will meet our hosts who will welcome you and accommodate you in your rooms and arrange the dance and pilates class times for your next days.
The way from here to the beach is very easy: Going straight ahead, crossing the main road, and continuing straight another 300 meters you will see the first local shops, handcrafted with materials from nature, such as bark, wood and straw. Walking about 400 meters to your left, you will find several beach shops to eat, or enjoy a drink.
Some have DJ or live music at sunset, to fully enjoy the wonderful sunset.
The sea is wild in this region, but you can swim taking the necessary precautions.
You will enjoy dancing on this beach, and if you wish you can join the soccer matches with the locals.
Dance in Senegal
Senegal’s dance tradition encompasses social dances as well as dances of religious or ritual nature. As in other West African dances, influences from Islamic and, in the 20th century, European culture can be traced. The dances can be divided into collective ring dances and distinct soloist dances. The dance is so-called polycentric: the dancers use the whole body, but with independent control of the different body parts. Body movements are often combined with advanced footwork. Typical of a number of dances in this part of West Africa is the use of dance masks.
