Itinerary (See FAQs below):

Day 1: Our dance adventure in the Dominican Republic begins in the capital of Santo Domingo. Founded in 1498, “La Zona Colonial” was established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is full of incredible history, music, dancing, and cultural attractions-including the first cathedral and university in the Americas. On the first day, you arrive in the late afternoon and settle into your hotel. After orientation and dinner overlooking the Caribbean, you’ll have free time to relax and drink your first ice cold Presidente. Those who still have energy can wander La Zona, enjoy dancing at a nearby club (don’t know any moves yet? No problem! We’ll give you a crash course on the dance floor!), or sit at a colmado and practice Spanish with the locals.

Day 2: After a guided tour of La Zona Colonial, you’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch and a sieste. In the evening, you’ll take your first dance classes in bachata and merengue–both dances native to the Dominican Republic. You’ll then head out for a night on the town with our teachers and Dominican friends.

Day 3: Every trip to the Dominican deserves a dip in the Caribbean! Today, we head to an amazing restaurant that hovers over the Caribbean sea. You can swim, hang out on the beach or read your favorite book in a beach chair while sipping a daiquiri. We return in the late afternoon in time for dinner. Tonight, you can take it easy or dance with the locals.

Day 4: Some of the best chocolate in the world comes from the Dominican Republic. After a chocolate-making course, enjoy a delicious lunch of sanchocho (a delicious stew full of meat and root vegetables) or another local delicacy. In the late afternoon, we take dance classes before going out to dance to live music.

Day 5: A morning of dance classes makes sure you’re prepared for an incredible evening! Tonight, we meet our Dominican friends and teachers for the weekly outdoor gathering that features a live band, folkloric performances, and plenty of bachata and merengue dancing – all set among the ruins of an old monastery. It’s an amazing evening, and you will meet lots of fun people.

Day 6: Your final day in the Dominican Republic is free for relaxing, shopping for larimar jewelry, or meeting up for coffee with your new Dominican friends.


Where do we social dance? Dominicans like to social dance at bars, dance schools, and at the outdoor gathering that happens every Sunday. This gathering is held in the ruins of an old monastery and is one of the highlights of the trip. The social dance venues are all walking distance from our hotel.
How are the classes broken up? There will be three hours of classes over three days for a total of nine hours of classes.
Who are the teachers? The teachers are all fabulous Dominican dancers who teach at various dance schools throughout Santo Domingo. Part of Dance Adventures’ mission is to support local artists, so hiring local instructors is very important to us.
How much free time will we have? None of the activities on the itinerary are mandatory (although they are all a lot of fun!). You can take as much as you want to sleep in, explore more of the city, or hang out with new Dominican friends.
How many participants will come? Will they all be from Salsa With Silvia? This trip will run with a minimum of 14 and a maximum of 20 travelers. We anticipate that the majority of students will be from Salsa With Silvia, however the trip is open to the general public (so feel free to invite your friends!).

Do I need to rent a car? No. We will arrange your airport transfers. If you really need to go somewhere in the city, you can take Uber or a taxi.

How many meals are included? All breakfasts, the welcome dinner, and lunch during our day trip to the beach.
