Celebrate the Joy of Dance with Karina Smirnoff at Golden Door Spa

January 11, 2012 -

Golden Door, North America’s premier destination spa, is offering a special Dance Week, Feb. 8-10 hosted by Karina Smirnoff, reigning champion for the hit television show “Dancing with the Stars.”

Karina will teach a series of exclusive dance classes for guests. Karina will also talk about her inspirational journey and be available for photos during a special evening presentation.

"I have been a fan of Golden Door for years and I couldn't be more excited to do my DanceFIT program here! We're going to dance, get in shape and have a ton of fun! It's a perfect FIT for the start of 2012!” says Karina. Beyond being an incredible teacher and world champion, Karina is dedicated to helping people lead healthier lives, and will be sharing her exclusive DanceFIT program and dance moves, designed for all fitness levels (private sessions offered as well for an extra fee). In addition, a variety of other dance classes will be offered by our skillful staff.

As a form of self-expression and communication, dancing is a powerful emotional and spiritual outlet. As exercise, it provides all the essential components of a complete aerobic workout, improving endurance, balance, strength, flexibility and core stability.

Learn from the best while you enjoy a transformational getaway and practice your favorite dance steps to build strength, burn calories and have fun. Also included in your week is a customized Golden Door stay of massages, beauty treatments, organic garden-to-plate cuisine, fitness at your level, skin care products, camaraderie, and attentive service in the secluded rolling hills of Northern San Diego.

The original Golden Door Spa®, founded by Deborah Szekely in 1958, is home to one of the most innovative, integrative and transformative luxury retreats in the world today. Winner of SpaFinder Reader’s Choice Award in 2011 and Travel & Leisure’s 2011 World’s Best Awards, it is known for customized fitness and wellness programs, 20 miles of private hiking trails, Japanese-inspired architecture, plus a staff-to-guest ratio of 4:1. Golden Door Spa is part of the LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels collection, a dynamic collection of resorts and hotels dedicated to an entirely new definition of luxury.
