Impact Dance Escape

For some of us, a holiday means rest, relaxation and a jug of rum punch. For Impact Dance, however, it means seven days of dance classes, shows and evening parties in Turkey. Now in its sixth year, Escape brings up to 40 people the chance to spend their summer dancing in a 5-star spa hotel this autumn.

“I organise ESCAPE Holidays as I love to see people have great lifetime experiences,” says Impact Dance’s Artistic Director Hakeem Onibudo. “People come together enjoy a week of fun, relaxation and exercise in a picturesque environment. It is 6 days of Dance Sun relaxation with an emphasis on people interacting and having great experiences.”

Participants can expect to take part in over 20 classes during the week, including Hip-Hop, Street Dance, African, Dancehall, Contemporary, Zumba, Azonto, Soca, taught by top professional performers and teachers including Vicki Igbokwe, Paradigmz, Hakeem Onibudo, Delene Gordon and Anthony Duncan.

“We also take our own London DJ and in the evening have show-nights and quiz nights to name but a few,” adds Hakeem. “ Each year I am pushed to bring more ideas to heighten the experience, but still have a fresh approach to things. We do not pressure anyone to do anything that they don’t want to do. Everything is optional, but we encourage everyone to come together in the evenings.”

Escape 2014 takes place from September 26 – October 2 2014, and if this all sounds like your idea of a heavenly holiday, head over to the webpage at for more details and booking information, or email Hakeem on
