Why a ukulele retreat?
A retreat is a complete immersion in doing what you love. It's like being on a secluded island where the concerns of every day life melt away. No worries, no judgement. We offer a safe, supportive, all-women environment that encourages and nurtures. Think sisterhood bonding with music.
Why only eight participants?
We have been a small-scale ukulele retreat for seven years. We believe people get lost in large groups, they seem to disappear. Sure, the sound is big, but in a small group there are more personable experiences. A closeness develops that doesn't happen in large groups. Small groups embrace the magic of the music which creates dynamic connections.
How is the the Sassy retreat different from others?
Ours is more of a discovery retreat with a community-based theme. You will leave with an abundance of songs, and a renewed appreciation of who you are behind the ukulele. When researching retreats be sure to compare apples to apples, and know the difference. Our biggest difference is that we're a small, intimate, women-only gathering in a beautiful, serene, tropical setting. Think couples retreat, where you and your ukulele are the couple.
Can I attend only one day?
We know how to say no. You can't! This defeats the purpose of the retreat.
Do I need to bring a music stand?
Nope, they are provided, on loan for the weekend.
Where in Florida?
