In times like these, sometimes you just need to get away from it all..and what a better way than to head out of town to a 5 star resort! Last weekend, our dance family traveled to Sea Island, Georgia to have a leisurely weekend at the World Renowned resort, The Cloister. Our trip was planned with intent on being safe while having the time of our lives. While respecting the social distancing stand safety measures to keep everyone healthy, we managed to have an absolutely wonderful time and forget about all of our worries if only for just a weekend.

In pulling up, we were all floored by the absolute beauty and luxury this resort had to offer. You walk in and are almost taken back to a different time with the old world charm. As we all got settled in, we dressed for the first night of fun festivities. We started with a champagne toast in the Spanish Lounge as we learned about the history of this magnificent hotel. We went to dinner at one of their phenomenal restaurants, Tavola. After dinner, we immediately went over to our own PRIVATE BALLROOM! In this 1900 sq ft ballroom, we had an amazing band play exclusively for us…E-Z Credit Combo where we danced the night away! We were able to dance with each other without being too crowded and we made it a point to wear face shields and masks throughout the entire night and sanitize our hands in between each dance

As day 2 came around, we were ready for a day of fun! We had breakfast and then got ready for our free day. Some people went to the spa, some to the pools, and some even took a little day trip to Jekyll Island for some fun and history. With all of the extra curricular activities the resort has to offer, it’s pretty hard to not have a good time. As it got close to dinner time, we all got to our rooms to get all dressed up for our formal night of dancing. Our evening affair started with an exclusive dinner in their private wine cellar where we were treated to a three course meal that was TO DIE FOR! After dinner, we headed back up to our ballroom where we were then treated to a night of dancing with the Jekyll Island Big Band.

Our trip was coming to a close…but we weren’t quite done yet! On Sunday, we were treated to an exclusive brunch in our private ballroom while we waited for E-Z Credit Combo to play one more set for us before we took off. We danced, we laughed, we had so much fun,,,but most of all, we ESCAPED!

Take a look at our memories from our latest escape!
