Underwater Modelling and Dance Retreat Egypt (September 2027)


For whom is the Underwater Modelling and Dance Retreat suitable?

Basically everyone is welcome to our Underwater Modelling and Dance Retreat who has a passion for the underwater world and wants to gain new experiences. We want to create a place where like-minded water lovers can connect, learn and go home with heart filled with love and memories that will last a life time. Additionally, you will receive stunning photos, videos and underwater content.

To take part in this underwater modelling retreat you must be able to swim well and confidently. In addition, we recommend general basic fitness, because modelling and dancing under water can be exhausting. However, no freediving, scuba diving or modelling experiences are required.

No matter if you are just beginning your underwater adventure or if you are a professional, nobody misses out at our Underwater Modelling and Dance Retreat. Depending on your personal level, we offer as much support as you need.

Since we firmly believe that underwater models come in all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and genders, there are no visual criteria to meet. However, participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
