Belle Valley Estate provides a secluded and lush property nestled 30 minutes from La Crosse, WI.


This beautiful location gives us many options to dance including many acres of grass, as well as the recently finished barn! The log home provides a cozy space to relax and rest. The heated in ground pool will be so nice to jump into after our dance classes. The hiking trails on the cascading bluffs will provide some exploration time!

"Creativity and inspiration can be found almost anywhere. I sometimes feel I lack creativity and get into a rut, but this retreat helped show me that it is fairly easy to get out of that mindset and continue to create."
"I really enjoyed taking classes and watching the dance films! The classes were relaxing yet still engaging and I felt very inspired by the films."
"I highly recommend I&E classes! Michelle creates an inclusive and supportive environment in which any adult will feel successful in."

The Dance Retreat!
