Island Hotel Istra is on a private island off the coast of the Istrian peninsular in Croatia, Named St Andrews island, the locals call it Red Island and it is part of the Rovinj archipelago. A smart 4 star hotel with spa and all the facilities to match the Istra is a really great place from which to relax and explore the beautiful coastline and heritage of Croatia.

Below is the harbour at Rovinj.

 Boats to Red island depart from Rovinj every hour, from 05:30 until 00:30 and the journey takes 17 minutes. Once there you will find the modern hotel set next to the old castle. There are two pools set above a rocky beach with sun loungers and showers with other beaches available all around the island for explorers. An aerial view of the island is below.

Dance workshops: Ceroc Blaze offers a full schedule of dance workshops each day.  These workshops will not only give you precious time with the top Ceroc teachers in the UK who will entertain you with their humour, personality and excellent teaching technique, but also will give you the opportunity to take different modules including: Styling, Lifts, Drops and Seducers, Dirty Dancing, Fancy Footwork, Close Moves, Stops Breaks and Pauses. This is a unique opportunity to widen your Ceroc repertoire, gain confidence within your dancing and dance as much as you want.

Venue of classes:  All the workshops will conveniently take place within the hotel.

We aim for all of our Ceroc events to be gender balanced. We believe that gender balancing is an important feature of Ceroc events as it ensures maximum enjoyment for everyone. By nature, Ceroc requires a male lead and to create a successful event it is important for both men and women to have equal workshop and freestyle opportunities.

We strive to ensure a successful gender balance by creating appropriate promotions where necessary.
 

Teaching the Ceroc Blaze workshops and dancing with you during freestyle nights will be some of the top names in Ceroc from the UK. The teaching team are chosen not just for their great teaching technique but also for their charisma, sense of humour and fun. Among the teachers will be:

Debbie Attwood
A renowned figure on the UK Ceroc scene, Debbie began teaching in 2001 as part of a fresh start after the breakdown of a relationship. She fell in love with it and two years later in 2003 opened a Ceroc franchise in her home county of Worcestershire. Debbie is still as passionate about Ceroc today as when she first started and has helped to run our annual Ceroc Med Fest event for the past 7 years.

Mark and Rachel
Popular teachers based in the South-West of England, Mark & Rachel hold regular classes in Bristol and the surrounding area.
 

Cuisine:  Rovinj offers a  choice of modern and traditional restaurants with freshly caught seafood a speciality.

What are optional extras?  In addition to your holiday we also offer a variety of optional extras to add some local colour to your holiday.  Optional extras can be booked and paid for at the welcome meeting at the beginning of your holiday.  We will ask you to pay in cash and fill out a form.  Full details and prices will be confirmed on arrival. *minimum numbers required*

 

On Arrival: You will receive a detailed itinerary and details of any optional extras.

Tour Host: Over the week you will have a tour host who will be available to help you with any questions that you may have. They are present from the pickup at the airport until you go home, and also actively participate in the social events. Whilst it should be noted that tour hosts cannot be present at every moment (as they sometimes must prepare other activities for your holiday), their role is to facilitate as much as possible that you have an unforgettable holiday. They normally go to bed at around 1’o clock in the morning and you should continue to enjoy your evening.

Overview of the Week and Welcome Drink: At the beginning of the week there is an Overview of the Week where your tour host will tell you about all details of your holiday. At the Overview of the Week you can buy your optional extras (see below). Also at the start of the week, Dance Holidays will invite you to be our guest to a drink.

Getting Around: You are responsible for making your own way to the dance classes and meeting points on the itinerary. We will point out those times when it is sensible to take a taxi.

Free time: We encourage you to explore the local area and make use of the excellent hotel facilities. This can be done when you please around the activities and dance classes that we have organized for you. Your tour host will be on hand for any queries you may have about the local area.

 

Banks and Money: Croatian Kuna is the currency. You can change Pouds Sterling at an exchange office (Mjenjacnica) or get Kuna out from an ATM on your credit card.

Airports, bus stations, train stations and ferry ports that receive international arrivals (Zagreb, Split, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Rijeka) will have a convenient exchange office to change money but they are not 24/7 operations! For a late-night arrival, look for an ATM. Exchange offices are, of course, money-making operations so you will pay a commission of about 3%.
Big hotels and banks will exchange your money too. You will always need to show your passport at a bank.

Tipping: In most cases, the the tip and taxes are included in the bill, so tipping is not necessary.  If you have a large group, or have excellent service, a 10-15 % would be appropriate.

Making friends with the Locals and people not on the holiday: The dance classes and dance evening events in the hotel at night are exclusive to Dance Holidays clients. Generally, we discourage people who are not on the holiday from joining our activities and we ask for your discretion is this respect. By all means, outside of the itinerary, do mix with other holidaymakers staying in the hotel.

 

Ceroc Blaze includes 7 fabulous freestyle nights and often the party continues into the early hours.

In addition to dancing and music from Ceroc UK's top DJs, our freestyle nights include fun competitions, cabaret, fancy dress (theme TBC) and a showcase by the teachers on the last night. The last night will also host the 'Blaze 2018 Awards' where prizes will be given to the Sexiest dancer, Coolest mover etc.

The Ceroc UK team are fantastic party hosts and they will ensure you have some unforgettable nights on the island.
     

Ceroc Blaze is suitable for dancers of all abilities but we do recommend, for maximum enjoyment, that you have some experience before joining the holiday.

There is a full schedule of dance workshops each day and different modules include: Styling, Lifts, Drops and Seducers, Dirty Dancing, Fancy Footwork, Close Moves, Stops Breaks and Pauses. This is a unique opportunity to widen your Ceroc repertoire, gain confidence within your dancing and dance as much as you want.

The Ceroc UK teachers aim is to ensure that everyone gets something out of the classes; even the most advanced dancers will be stretched and will return from the week away with new additions to their repertoire. What's more, the teaching team inject a fantastic sense of fun into all the classes and workshops.
