 Live music will accompany our process

Come, Join, and let’s dive deeper into our Dance together!

The place

We will live together and share space in the beautiful Oikia Karapanou, a 200 year old mansion with the beach at 5 minutes for our walking feet and all the stars with us at night.

The nature of our dance

Itay's morning classes will be held in our outdoor dancing space. With Iris we will take our dance to the hills, trees and sea of Aegina. We will meet intimately  with our mother earth, with our inner  being and with each other.

The Programme

 We will start each day with a morning class of CI followed by a light vegetarian lunch and rest. In the afternoon session we will dive into our bodies and the nature of Aegina, to practice improvisation and Presence. The evenings will be open for jams, music and fire under the stars.

The Food

For our daily lunch we will share a feast of fresh vegetables and spreads. Dinner will be prepared for us by the wonderful cooks of Oikia. The menu will be vegetarian.


 You have the choice to camp in the garden

of Oikia or to sleep in shared rooms of couple/three persons.

The number of participants is limited to 35, so save your spot !
