San Miguel de Allende is a beautiful world-famous UNESCO site, with cobblestone streets filled with original colonial architecture and a wonderful vibe and ambiance. 

This trip features lodging split between two convenient locations, daily breakfasts, dance classes, and fun, plus lots of exploring this remarkable city and the surrounding region. We will visit museums, gardens, hot springs, churches, and enjoy the numerous wonderful restaurants – many of them rooftop.  

We will have classes each day AND dance every evening to live music in one of San Miguel's many wonderful local nightspots. 

Lots of teaching, lots of dancing, lots of adventure!



Our week of dance adventure will be held in the historic colonial town of San Miguel de Allende in the highlands of Mexico. San Miguel is a world heritage site known for the art, culture, architecture, friendly people, indigenous influence and exceptional cuisine, and was recently named by Conde Nast and Travel and Leisure as the ”Best Small City in the World”.  Besides dancing at every opportunity with daily lessons and evening dance action, you’ll be able to sample the best of Mexico, visit two local hot springs, attend a fabulous Halloween night at a local artist colony, meet the local dance community, and fall in love with the warm Latin culture!   


For our first four nights in San Miguel, the entire group will be staying at the beautiful  "Casa de al Noche" -- an award winning boutique-style bed & breakfast located in a former bordello.  

The next five nights we move to two different lodgings close to Parque Juarez, a wonderful area to explore.  La Gran Casa del Parque is a spectacular old-world style luxury home for those who want an extra-deluxe experience for an additional $150/pp.  This will be our base for many of our group activities.  Hotel Real de Minas provides a charming and comfortable Mexican hospitality experience with extra-large rooms and grounds.  Both properties feature beautiful gardens and a pool.
