Near the park, there is the extremely long beach of golfo di Manerba that features a marvellous cycling track that runs along the entire coast, where you can have fun renting boats or pedal boats to discover the two beautiful islands that embellish the gulf: Conigli island and Garda island: a comfortable shuttle-boat crosses the lake on a regular basis, that will bring you to the Conigli island where you will find a bar-restaurant and the neatest and most crystalline water of the entire Lake Garda for refreshing swims.

Dance students and teachers
During these lessons, the students can further understand the dance class, the issues linked to the execution of the steps, the various phases are explained and analysed to learn coordination, improve the perception of rhythm and teach musicality.
Through an analytical and theoretical explanation of the proper dance study, the students will strengthen their knowledge and will be encouraged to undertake a more profitable and aware course.
A show will be held at the end of every week, to which all students will participate.
A therapist specialised in the dance field will be available, who is aware and knowledgeable about the multiple issues that a dancer has to face during a study day. A qualified figure that will alleviate the fatigues thanks to his treatments, relax the muscles and heal any contracture. Francesco Russo is truly the person that each dancer wishes to have by his/her side for the entire career!
