Harmony Fusion Dance Weekend

3 days of dance, nature and connection.

This cozy weekend event will take place on 2-5 August 2024 in Poręba Wielka, Poland. The location is approx. 60 km from Cracow (1h journey), with its well-connected airport Balice and is accessible by public transport. If you are coming from far away, this event is perfect to combine with visiting the famous historical city of Cracow.

Join us to enjoy three days of dancing, connections and relaxing in the beautiful Polish mountains. This is an all-inclusive weekend in a comfortable hostel offering small rooms with private bathrooms. You will be able to fully enjoy all of the activities and not worry about preparing meals or doing the dishes. The hostel is located 200m from the entrance to the Gorce National Park and 50m from Gorce thermal pools.

The small size of the group and a programme leaving space for semi-formal skills exchanges, relaxed time and nature exploration will guarantee a familiar ambience.

How to get there?

Poręba Wielka can be accessed by public transport. There are 3 buses per day from Krakow. The organizers will also facilitate and encourage carpooling, when suitable. In case a considerable number of participants expresses a need for support to arrange travel, we will consider arranging a mini-bus, which could transfer participants to the venue.

Accommodation

Rooms are between 2-5 people, all with bathrooms. 3 meals per day are provided, all vegetarian. Buffet breakfast and supper, lunch served at the tables. If you are coming in a group of between 3-5 people, you can let us know and we will try to assign you to the same room. Otherwise, first come, first chooses the room.

Surroundings

Pictures of the park of Counts Wodzicki, just a few meters from our hostel. The park is approximately 19 ha and there are around 1,000 trees growing here, 14 have the status of natural monuments. The oldest trees are approximately 300–400 years old.

What is fusion?

Fusion is a dance style focused on connection and interpreting the music together. We dance to a huge variety of music: sometimes music associated with a particular dance style, sometimes electronic music, sometimes hip-hop, and sometimes something entirely different—depending on the DJ.

There are dancers coming with very different backgrounds: from blues, kizomba, zouk, tango, or contact improvisation. Each dance is different, and you can always expect to see something new.

It’s a great dance for beginners as well: you don’t need experience in dancing. You can attend without anxiety and connect to the music as well as your partner—and dance as you feel. Besides that, we will have open level classes to help you start.

Code of conduct

Respect each other and be aware that everyone has a different perception of limits: better err on the side of being too polite and too respectful. Please talk to each other: ask for permission and tell people if they do something you are not OK with.

If someone is repeatedly disrespecting your limits, please talk to the care team or the organizers.

In case anything uncomfortable happens to you, or you witness anything that concerns you, please get in contact with your care team or the organizers.

Note! If you have ever been banned from any dance community or event, please contact the organizer before purchasing your ticket. We want to make sure everybody feels safe—and we would need to double-check if we can have you at the event. Failure to notify us can result in your being banned from the event.
