Detailed Information

Dear Dancers,

Greetings from the Bintan Dance Camp Team!

We continue the success of previous years with full days of intensive study and training in Latin American dancing in Indonesia, guided by the world’s best coaches, teachers and dance personalities. Our annual dance camp in September this year will be held in Bintan, an Indonesian island right next to Singapore, with World Class Latin Teachers from all over the world: Ralf Lepehne, Carmen, Slavik Kryklyvyy, Espen Salberg (only for the 2nd camp), Ruud Vermeij and Lu Ning.

The Bintan Dance Camp is open to Professionals, Amateurs, and Pro-Am dancers.

If you would like to join the dance camp, please note that the closest airport to Bintan is “Singapore Changi Airport (SIN)” and everyone needs to take a ferry (approximately 1 hour) to Bintan and back to Singapore.

Thank you for your attention and we’re looking forward to seeing you all in the first Bintan Dance Camp!
