Saturday Day 1: Arrivals - Benvenuti!
Welcome to Puglia!
On your arrival at the airport you will be met and driven to your luxury accommodation in Martina Franca where you will be welcomed with a glass of prosecco, given a brief tour of the property and then time to unwind and relax and meet the other dancers.
Once everyone has arrived there will be an introduction by the dance teachers, Heather and Hadass, who will go through the week's dance timetable before dinner, which will be at the villa.
Sunday Day 2: Full Day Wine Tasting Tour
After breakfast you will be heading out for a full day of wine tasting.

On return to your accommodation you can enjoy a couple of hours of relaxation before sitting down to dinner at the villa.
Monday Day 3: Dance Lessons
After breakfast there will be two hours of dance lessons before breaking for a light buffet lunch. This will be followed by a further two hours of dance lessons after which you will have plenty of time to relax around the pool with a drink or, if you are not too tired, walk into town.

We return to the villa for a light lunch and an afternoon of dance lessons.
