Fuerteventura is a very powerful volcanic island, consisting at first sight mostly of volcanic stone and desert sand. However, when you take a closer look you will find millions of tiny flowers reaching up toward the sky between stones. On your walks through the desert you will find lush flower and palm tree fields hidden wherever the ground is lower, and water is more accessible. You will notice the beautiful play of light and color in the vast mountainous landscape, – mostly shades of red, brown and green, contrasted by pitch black. You can walk anywhere in the landscape. No fence will stop you. Walk up the volcanoes, see the craters, be there, dance there! Be alive where you are!
Fuerteventura has a great variety of beaches which are all very different, ranging from enormous white sand beaches and sand dunes to beautiful magical lagoons and harsh cliffs. We will be living in the North of the island near Lajares which means we have easy access to the West, North and East coast of the island, which are all very distinct.
The studios for dancing are located in Corralejo and Lajares.
The hostel / albergue de cohombrillo will be our home for sleeping, cooking, eating, relaxing and being. It is close to Lajares, out in the country side. There is a lot of space around to be ourselves without bothering anybody. We are granted great freedom in changing the facilities into our own personal space so that we can create what we wish. The sleeping rooms are very simple housing 10-14 people. You are invited to decorate it, make it your own to feel comfortable. Each dormitory has its own shower facilities run by solar energy. We will be dancing and also living close to nature. Part of the experience each year is running low on hot water and being creative in finding solutions, like doing hot bucket showers.
If you bring your own tent you can put it almost anywhere on the vast premises and you are close to nature.
We have a big community space for eating and spending time indoors.
We also set up a silent tent for bodywork close to the community space.
