RAKSummer Camp Special Edition with Mercedes and guests

1-4 August, 2019, Zánka, Lake Balaton, Hungary

Exhale and inhale… Join us in this magical summer experience! Let’s spend together four days of summer joy, relaxation and recharge: more than 20 hours of dance and movement, beautiful location with nature all around, healthy food, friendly atmosphere.


Do you sometime find the speed of the everyday life too exhausting? Do you sometimes feel that you are under too much pressure when it comes to your work, social media or even your dance career? Do you also love dancing but feel lost sometimes how to go on with it, how to develop your connection to it and your inner world? Then we already have something in common. Join the Soul Garden and learn to slow down with us. Get deeper in dance and be more present through connections we will create – with each other, with nature, and most of all – with yourself.

Soul Garden is a new step of a decade long tradition of my belly dance camps. I would like to focus on the personal development of each participant as well as offering an interesting schedule and space and time to connect, recharge, ask question, experiment.


The Soul Garden team is created out of friendships and years long professional and personal relationships. Together we will create a safe space for you and guide you to immerse in your own creativity.


I have chosen a new location that was a love for first sight to me: Zen Garden Resort in Zánka – a lovely and brand new resort right by the Lake Balaton with a private beach, zen garden, outdoor bio pool, sauna, surrounded with raw nature, huge old trees, lots of space to explore and lots of fresh air to sooth our minds. You can rent bicycle at the resort to get around the area, or rent a sup to immerse into the peacefulness of the lake.   

  • Accommodation in non-smoking and air conditioned bungalows for 4 persons (two bedrooms), equipped with private bathroom, kitchen, terrace, free wi-fi
  • You can easily get there from Budapest by train (apx. 2 hours) or car (apx. 1,5 hours). We will help you to arrange your trip from the airport and pick you up from the train station.
  • The most famous gastro and cultural village of the Lake (Köveskál) is just a 10 minutes ride (car or bike).


The amazing chef of the resort has created a menu especially for us: healthy, light, fresh from local ingredients – it will keep us moving. Any special requests and diets are doable too.

All the meals are included (breakfast, lunch, dinner) in the full pass – but you can also order your pass without food, if you wish to take care of it on your own.


  • Welcome gift bag with lovely Soul Garden surprises
  • Bazaar (with dance costumes and accessories, audio and video materials)
  • Closing night hafla where you can perform or just watch and enjoy the summer evening
  • New friends, sunshine, fresh air
