Muévete is a 7-day beachfront retreat in beautiful Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic.
Held 2/9 - 2/15 2024.
Learn and center with daily meditation and yoga, Bachata dance classes led by famous local instructors, breathtaking excursions into nature, and sexy nights out dancing, all on the gorgeous beaches of Las Terrenas.
This retreat is a beautiful balance celebrating life through movement, nature, breath and community.
You will leave Muévete Dance Retreat with a greater knowledge of traditional Bachata, as well as a deeper connection to your inner knowing. We are so excited to provide you with a safe space to move physically, emotionally, and energetically.
It is our belief that dance is one of the most powerful medicines on the planet.
Moving one’s body through the medium of dance unlocks and frees stuck energies, opens our Life Force, awakens our sensual nature, and ignites our joy of life.
In indigenous cultures everyone dances and everyone sings. Everyone! Dance was not reserved for the “performers” or elite. In our culture, many of us have been shamed concerning dance – either we weren’t “good enough", it was shunned by our religion, we didn’t have a “dance body”, etc…
It is your birthright to move and enjoy your body in every way possible regardless of background, abilities, body type, gender or any other freakin' thing!
Join us for Muévete Retreat to celebrate movement, your body, dance, the ocean, sun and fun in a positive, supportive & loving environment.
This retreat is for ALL dance abilities. You can be an absolute beginner (have never danced bachata before, but always wanted to!), or you can be advanced. The teacher are adept at catering the classes so that everyone learns, enhances their dance skills, and has a super fun time doing so.
Start your beautiful morning
with meditation, yoga, breath work and circle led by Bethany & Kyla, followed by Bachata dance class led by local expert teachers
Participate in as little or as much as you'd like.
Afternoons consist of
enjoying the gorgeous beaches of Las Terrenas, exploring local treasures, lounging by the pool, or group excursions.

Kyla Hallums is a traveling dance teacher, vocal coach, empowerment guide, and multi-discipline movement professional based out of Nashville, TN.

She’s put thousands of hours into her own training to curate a space to authentically help others uncover and celebrate their true selves. Kyla truly believes all the answers lie within you, and with the use of breath, movement, touch, self-reflection, and connection, Kyla has been a guide for many people, from learning dance moves to conquering lifelong fears and limiting beliefs.

A joyful soul. But most of all, Kyla is someone who loves to watch others step into their power, conquer fears, and simply love themselves a little harder.
