As you can see the program is roughly the same for both BOOTCAMPS, the only thing different will be the guest teacher (Constanze or Amirah) and the dates ;) But BOTH will be equally fun :)

Every morning we will have a (optional, but FUN, promise :)) shred workout session, followed by a long cool down and stretch. After that our guest teachers will teach their respective workshops. The afternoons will be filled with daily bellydance classes with Queenie and Khalida, and there will be a hafla/studio party on Saturday evening. On Thursday morning (starting around 10:00 am) we will have a short introduction round and welcome at the studio.

There are many small Hotels and B&Bs; near the venue, but the cheapest options tend to sell out fast, so don't wait too long to book! Around the time of BOOTCAMP I (5-8 July 2012) it might be easier to find accomodation in Eschweiler and other regions around Würselen, but for BOOTCAMP II (19-22 July 2012) there are more options in Aachen available as well. Check out our special BOOTCAMP Facebook page for tips and possible roomshare/carpool options.

Number of participants per BOOTCAMP
Classes will be limited to 16-17 persons maximum, so if you'd like to join be sure to enroll soon at our Enrollment page. . At the moment there is a waiting list for BOOTCAMP I and about 6 spots left for BOOTCAMP II.

Even though all of the morning workouts are optional, we would like to welcome ALL of you on the first day of your respective BOOTCAMP in the studio at 10.00h. Please count about 10 minutes for parking, as you can park for free in the streets around the venue but you might have to walk a bit. At 10.15h SHARP the official welcome speech begins, and we are looking forward to seeing all of you there :)

Practical and Payments
We will start sending out the first invoices in the coming days to those who have opted for the payment plan. Those who are paying the whole fee in one go will receive their invoice in May (so you can plan ahead a bit!)

Hafla/BC Party
Officer Q will be sending a separate email about the hafla shortly. If you'd like to perform (still spots available!) a short dance just let us know by email to The hafla will be held in the studio itself, so a warm/friendly low-key atmosphere. There will also be bopping/party time in between so bring your dance gear/hip scarf/galabeya or camouflage suit in any case :)

We are THINKING (confirmation pending!) of adding in a mini-prize for 'Best BC Outfit' so you can go as crazy (or as 'normal'!) as you want to :)

Food and Drinks
Please remember that there is NO cafeteria or vending machine on-site in the BOOTCAMP venue, but you are allowed to bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks during the day. We'd recommend to have a hearty breakfast before you come to the classes, especially if are joining the (optional! but fun!) daily morning workout sessions :)

There is a gas station (ARAL) and a supermarket (Aldi) with fresh bread (!) at the end of Oppener Strasse (street of the venue), so in emergency you can always get extra supplies there.

On Saturday we will provide sandwiches and some veggies/fruit before the hafla for you and bottles of water backstage, so you can stay on-site until the evening if you want to.

What to bring?
- snacks, drinks and food for during the day
- a yoga/pilates mat and/or towel
- something to write/take notes
- a photocamera
- sufficient workout clothes (it can get hot!)
- for BCI: ballet slippers (only needed on Th, Fr, Sa)
- underwear etc.. :)
- something to wear at the hafla (and/or plus costume and your CD if you want to dance!)
- makeup
- water
- your best army face ;)

What is shred?
Jillian Michaels' '30-day shred' is a short (only 20 minutes!) but intense (but fun!) workout session, with different levels (we will start at level 1) that can be done with or without weights. Check out the information here:

If you don't have any weights we have a few sets to spare, but using small water bottles works just as well.
You will need a yoga mat as well, as part of the workout is done lying down on the floor.

Alright, that is it for now :)
More news and updates will follow later, at the moment there are only 6 spots left for BCII, so if you have any friends/colleagues that might be interested let them know and/or feel free to forward the information or even this email to them!

for BCI and BCII:

Hope to see you all there! TEN-HUT! BOOTCAMP 2012
