Unearthed Dance Trapeze Retreat 

March 29th - April 5th 2024


Unearthed Dance Trapeze Retreat is the in person version of my 6 week online mentorship. This retreat is all about you and your trapeze practice. 


Unearthed is my Dance Trapeze creative mentorship 

I am delighted to be offering as a 7 day retreat in the jungle of Costa Rica at the breathtaking space of Airborne Arts. 

This retreat is about immersing yourself in your creative practice and relationship to trapeze. Finding what you deeply desire to express, what is standing in your way and how to unearth these parts of you into movement and creativity. Building the tools and guidance to create a practice that is both satisfying and freeing. Unearthed isn't about molding you to move or look like me or someone else. It's about finding YOU and bringing that into your creative expression and movement, to give you a creative practice that is both satisfying and liberating. 

What to expect:

Over the 7 days I will be guiding you through the methodology and creative practices that I use in Unearthed (my 6 week online mentorship course) and my own work. You’ll have 2 classes each morning focused on spinning, sequencing, movement quality and expression. In the afternoon there will be plenty of open studio time to hone in on and cultivate the material from the morning classes. Each day will build on the next to expand and deepen your movement vocabulary and confidence in your creative expression. We will have a sharing(mini performance) on the final evening of the retreat. 

There will be additional open studio time to explore, play, jam to your hearts desire in the evening until 8pm.


Accommodation: Will be in Airborne's beautiful shared rooms you can see more here:


Food: Airborne Art’s will be catering for us each day with 3 delicious and locally sourced meals

Transport: You will be picked up from San Jose  Airport (or pre determined hotel) on March 29th and back to San Jose Airport on April 5th 

Cost: $2800 (a $500 deposit is required to secure your spot) -   



What level is it? Intermediate to advanced. This retreat is about cultivating and developing you as a trapeze artist. The most important part of that is that you already have a trapeze practice and feel comfortable moving on the apparatus. Strength wise having a few pull ups and feeling confident inverting in the air will be important for the spinning work we will do. 

Will I have the option to see some of the surrounding area? Yes definitely, there are options to arrange excursions through Airborne Arts (Note: these are at an additional cost)

Can I bring my own trapeze?: Yes you can!


This retreat is about developing your skills, movement and expression as a dance trapeze artist. 

I look forward to working with you!
