Need a break from carrying watermelons?  Tired of being put in the hot, stuffy corner?  As the dog days of summer start to settle in over the Low Country, our IBDS dance family is taking a much needed reprieve up to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina and the refreshing waters of Lake Lure with our newest dance adventure.

Now some people may know of this place as a lovely spa and resort with beautiful mountain views…and while all of that is wonderful, we are going for a special reason. This resort was the one of the filming locations for one of the most famous dance movies, DIRTY DANCING!   Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, the Historic 1927 Inn is surrounded by a beautiful mountain landscape right next to the wonderful Lake Lure where Johnny & Baby practiced their iconic lake lift!

A more casual retreat than our Big Band Weekends, we’ll be dancing on the beach lakeside with a bonfire & smores, relaxing on our very own private pontoon charter, movin’ and groovin’ like Swayze  and Grey to the sweet tunes of the Radio Sparks Band in our own private ballroom where scenes from “Dirty Dancing” were filmed, and having the time of our life!

What better way to escape the everyday, and beat the Charleston heat, than with our IBDS dance family on a Summer Dance Retreat!
