Afrekete Dance & Music Camp 2018
Afro-Cuban Summer Dance & Music Camp
New improved venue in Gold Coast for Afrekete 2018!! It will be held on the weekend of 19-21 January 2018 and at Tallebudgera Recreation Centre, only 12 minutes' drive from Gold Coast (Coolangatta) airport!
This decision to move states has been based on those who responded to our survey and some other feedback from previous years, and us wanting to make your experience better each year. A venue in the Gold Coast area makes it much more easily accessible to more people coming from other parts of Australia, like our Townsville & Cairns friends, as well as hopefully attract some more participants from NZ or even New Caledonia too. Gold Coast airport is only 12min drive away from the centre!! The date change was because of clashes with other festivals and also an expression of interest for a kids program in school holiday time.
The venue is in a perfect location opposite South Burleigh Headland with a strong Indigenous & cultural presence, complete with the warm Tallebudgera Creek alongside the site leading out to the Pacific Ocean in front, as well as multiple modern facilities for your comfort in the classes (with option to run parallel classes to cater for different levels of dancers & the kids program), as well as offering in-house catering for healthy & great choice meals at a super reasonable price per meal (only $10.50 per meal, with GF & V options too).
Tallebudgera Leisure Centre & Recreation Camp is essentially a school/ sporting club camp which has comfortable & modern studio cabins with ensuites (no kitchen), that can accommodate up to 6-7 people, so booking a cabin and sharing with all your friends can severely reduce the accommodation cost per person. All the cabins are the same.
What we need from you now is your commitment to 2018 Afrekete sooner than later in order to Secure the whole site to be able to have freedom to run the camp as we wish, with our parties & shows in-house & make as much noise as we want. Due to the Centre's regulations, we are forced to run it as a whole group booking rather than how the event was run in the past (where you booked your own accommodation through the caravan park & booked the Workshops/ Parties Event Passes through us). That means your booking will now need to include the accommodation (& possibly meals if you choose) as well as the Event Pass by 21st November.
We are still offering the best deal ever with regard to Accommodation & Event Pass...

* There are no proper cooking facilities in your cabins or on the site.
* If you opt NOT to have the meals, you can purchase meals at the small cafe on the beach (very busy) just outside the centre or up the road into Burleigh Heads beach for various restaurants, it's a 5min drive or 25min walk away
