About a workshop

Vacation 2023 - Here I Am a freedomDANCE retreat for gay men with Bodie Hunt and Alex Svoboda Sundance, Turkey 10 - 15 September 2023

‘Maybe you are searching among the branches for what only appears in the roots’ ~ Rumi

Vacation is an opportunity for each of us to shine in our uniqueness supported by a community of dancing gay brothers.

The simple and surprisingly powerful practice of freedomDANCE reconnects us with our physicality, sends our inner critic on a holiday and opens our hearts. Sharing a dance journey also connects us with each other on a deeper level. That’s how we create the special space where each of us can be seen and celebrated in our vulnerability and power.

Join us for our tenth Vacation, an unforgettable week of self-discovery, connection and healing.


We are going back to the welcoming rustic atmosphere of Sundance in Southern Turkey (the nearest airport is Antalya). Sundance is a real gem hidden away from mass tourism. It bathes in nature, has two beaches and a great dance space. The owners are excited about having our gay group back.


Book by 31 May at £295, or £345 thereafter. Accommodation and food (around €45 to 65 per night, depending on the option chosen) is paid directly to the venue on arrival. Full information sent via email on request.


Bodie and Alex, together, bring 30 years of experience teaching conscious dance. They both trained directly with Gabrielle Roth and are members of freedomDANCE Teacher Training faculty. They have been running Vacation gay retreats since 2013.


The retreat is approved for the purposes of freedomDANCE teacher training and professional development (Level 3, Here I Am - 18 hours; Level 2, Unity - 12 hours).
