Lauren, who earned a Diploma in Professional Dance from the prestigious Urdang Academy, will be hosting half-term dance camps for all-ages that will tap into a dance craze that has been sweeping across the globe for the last decade.

Having firmly established itself over the past 45 years as one of the most highly regarded luxury golf and residential developments in Europe, Quinta do Lago is set among 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park. The Campus is the latest evolution at Quinta do Lago: A multi-sport academy hub, designed as a sport and well-being destination and elite performance venue.

Now we are proud to announce our first set of dance masterclasses, with the presence of one of the rising stars of British dance ensuring this will be a special week for all taking part.

Lauren has a passion for dance and yoga and is coming to The Campus to share her expertise with what we are sure will be a captive audience, eager to learn some of the tricks of the trade in a dance craze inspired by the enduringly popular BBC1 show, Strictly Come Dancing.

Lauren will host her first dance masterclass during half-term week from October 29th – November 2nd and they will be open to all ages, with classes for under-16’s dancers mixed with sessions for more experienced dancers.

The four day masterclass sessions will offer a basic introduction to dance, with ability levels taken into consideration and a focus on fun and fitness throughout.

Commenting on the partnership, Lauren Jamieson said:

It is great to be linking up with The Campus at Quinta do Lago and I am looking forward to welcoming lovers of dance of all ages to what we hope will be the first of many dance masterclasses. I have always had a real passion for dance and I can’t wait to share that passion with those who will take part in my lessons.”
