Costa Rica Dance & Music Camp
The Costa Rica Dance and Music Camp is a 6 day camp for adult artists to share their talents, learn, inspire, and be inspired. It is based in Puerto Viejo, a Caribbean town on the south east coast of Costa Rica. In this unique area, the vibrant jungle and beaches lie side by side. This combination, along with the fusion of Latin and Caribbean cultures, has created a magnet attracting creative and progressive minds from all over the world. Currently there are over 50 countries represented in the expat population of this area. Therefore, its a perfect melting pot for sharing culture, skills, and creativity! The camp will consist of several options of activities including dance, music, jungle exploration, supportive artist based discussions, beach hopping, and more. We'll also be using the jungle and beaches as our "classrooms" whenever possible. All participants can participate in the talent show on the last night of camp. Puerto Viejo also has a vibrant nightlife in which campers will be free to explore. The first night of camp we'll be attending the local "Open Jam" where everyone will be able to debut their talent. This will also be at the same venue as the talent show the last night of camp.
