There are a number of options available to you depending on your preferred mode of travel. If you choose to fly, you may make your own arrangements or you can request that we organize your flight and transfer. Flights are available to Thessaloniki, Volos or Skiathos. Aegean Airlines and EasyJet fly daily into Thessaloniki. If you wish to have your own car available during your stay on the Pilion, overland travel through Croatia and Serbia is now possible again without difficulty. Many ferries operate between Italy and Greece, so you may decide to combine the convenience of your own car with the relaxation of a sea crossing.
There are no requirements. The courses are open to all, whether or not you have ever danced, acted or did Yoga, or are already a professional. Choose the courses you are interested in, just inform us of your dance level ability.
We recommend light comfortable clothing. No special outfit required, T shirt and shorts will do. Footwear depends on taste, we recommend to dance in socks or barefoot. Some of you will have dancing shoes, but no black shoes please, they leave nasty marks on our dance floor. The apartments are all supplied with fresh bedding and towels twice a week. Please note that the next cash machine is 5 km away in Argalasti. Mosquito repellent is recommended.
