Jairo and Steffie, business partners and husband and wife, have lived in China for 1,5 years when they felt like they needed a little break. They decided to go for a sabbatical year to travel around the world to meet new people and dance as much as possible. They love dancing Kizomba, Semba, Zouk, Flamenco, Salsa and Bachata.

In every country they go, they always look for local dance teachers that could teach them more. Steffie googled about dance trips and couldn’t find any trip that satisfied her desire to learn new styles and get to know the dance scene. That’s when the love baby Global Dance Trips was born.

Global Dance Trips is a platform for dance teachers to organize dance trips all around to world; From Flamenco in Sevilla to Hip Hop in New York and from Contemporary Dance in Berlin to Vogue in Paris. All dance levels are covered.

We believe the people you meet while you are travelling play a prominent role in how you feel after the trip. That’s why we carefully choose our dance teachers that are professional, kind and have a huge passion for teaching. They will teach in private and group sessions and show dancers around the city to give them a local experience.

I dance Flamenco, Salsa, Bachata, Zouk, Kizomba and I am always looking for places to learn new dance skills while I am travelling. GDT is born out of the desire to make it easy for you to find your next teacher and next destination.

GDT is a platform where I can mix my passion for dance, service design and entrepreneurship. The moment Steffie came up with the idea for GDT, I knew I wanted to be part of this dance movement. Hopefully, you will love it just as much as I do!
