”Dance means joy, well-being, communication and love of life. It is a willingness to share and celebrate, to be together in the moment, recognizing ourselves in our humanity. Through dance we intend to express the core of humanity from heart to heart.” – Sabina Todaro
”Sabina’s method encourages dancing and expression and time after time makes a student find the joy of dance.” – Taina
”Sabina builds dance movements through stretching and exercises. She is a demanding teacher who has the ability to encourage and support her students. In Lyrical Arab dance you can find the balance between body and mind, leaving you with joy and longing for the next time.” – Liisa 2th to 7th August 2017 in the nice and charming Pärnu, Estonian summer capital!
5 days dedicated to Lyrical Arab Dance, holyday and well-being, in Estonia, where it is warm but not too much 😉
Every day you can attend up to 7 hours dance classes or even only one so you have free time to dedicate to rest and self-care.
We will stay at the Spa Hotel Viiking, located along the beach and equipped with a wellness center, beauty salon and spa.
The dance classes are held in a large, bright and charming top roof Victoria Studio in the hotel, in a pleasant atmosphere, helping concentration, learning and training without any stress, promoting serenity and joy of living.

Sabina Todaro uses a particular educational approach developed during her more than 25 years experience of teaching, which starts from the study of anatomy and neurology especially to get a central reinforcement of the body structure to improve efficiency, through a tonic and effective training. Once the body is awakened with various stretching exercises, balance and toning, Sabina accompanies students in search of their expressiveness and their own natural movement, directing them to the archaic language of the dance forms of the Arab world reinterpreted in a contemporary way.
After the class, you will feel that you have worked hard, but without exhaustion: people have an incredible positive life energy that takes them every day towards a feeling of general well-being.
Next to the dance, there is time to enjoy a real holiday relaxation: in Pärnu there is the sea, with wide sandy beaches and secluded beaches, boulevards and parks to go walking and cycling (bike rental is everywhere and cheap), and take care of your wellness area with Finnish sauna, turkish bath, hot and cold water pools, Japanese bath and jacuzzi available to us for free at the hotel and the opportunity to undergo a wide variety of spa treatments, therapeutic and beauty massages at a very very low cost.
The town is very pleasant, walk in the center full of cozy cafes, restaurants and excellent shops, makes us feel on holiday: Parnu is in fact a place well known to the northern Europeans because of its beaches and spas .
The dance course is very intensive in terms of movement and the results in terms of improvement in dance and movement are evident.
Human experience is also very rich and full, and all accompanied by sun, sea, rest, and good company it feels really renewed!
The organization, according to Tanssiva Aurinko and Helena Metsa’s directions, provides transportation by ferry boat from the port of Helsinki to Tallinn, transport by bus from the port of Tallinn just in front of the main door of Viiking Hotel, the free and open use of the luxorious spa area (saunas, steam rooms, swimming pool, and whirlpools) the hotel provides rich buffet for breakfast 8included in the package.
The hotel offers a huge amount of beauty treatments: to book them, contact the hotel directly (it is recommended to do so in advance by mail, in English, to be sure to have the possibility to enjoy the sessions required).

All classes are taught entirely in English, and the group is international, so the lingua franca is English. Maybe the summer internship can become also an opportunity to learn or brush up your knowledge of the language!
