“Rūta” resort has an authentic vintage feeling to it. Spending a weekend here does feel like traveling back in time, and the accommodation is rustic, yet comfortable to spend the weekend dancing blues. 

The prices indicated are for STANDARD accommodation – each house has their own fireplace and a  mini kitchen, with 3 to 7 beds in each room. WC and shower are in general facilities. There is a spot for barbeque near each house.

There is an option to upgrade to COMFORT accommodation (WC and shower inside) – please check the second page of registration to select this one. The resort has 90 beds in small rustic cottages with hot water, WC, showers – this is what we call „COMFORT accommodation“ – if you want the spot in comfort accommodation, hurry to register, as these come on a “first come- first served” basis.

Classes start on Friday afternoon and end on Sunday (please schedule your trip knowing that on Sunday you will reach Vilnius at around 17:30) .

Parties:

2 grand parties on Friday and Saturday with live music, contests, showcases. Several dance floors will be available, so get those dancing shoes ready!

Pre-party:

You will be hosted in the same house/bed as planned for the festival. There will be no meals served, therefore bring what you want to eat as we will have a „no suits“ barbeque, talks, dancing, maybe some live music, but nothing formal – just cozy, relaxed atmosphere to meet old friends and make new ones!

Extras:

Volleyball, basketball, football, tanning in the sun, swimming in the lake… you name it! You all are welcome to bring your own equipment for any activities.

COVID-19:

As all of us know, we are still in the pandemic. Your health and safety is of utmost importance to us. Bluesila will be run in line with all Lithuanian and EU regulations regarding the pandemic. As the rules are changing, we will keep the participants updated before the event. We hope that by the time of the event, they will be minimal.

For the sake of safety, proof of vaccination, Opportunity Passport (for local dancers) or negative COVID-19 test result will be required to take part in the event. Considering everybody’s safety our plan is to keep the same requirements for all participants and staff regardless of their nationality or location of departure.

Some important notes:

  • In order to participate in the camp, one must meet all the requirements enforced by the EU and Lithuanian laws. We will update all the requirements prior the event (approx. 3 weeks)
  • Proof of vaccination with the vaccine approved by the EU is a must.The official document must include the vaccine type and manufacturer, number of doses, date of vaccination. 
  • Organizers may ask you to take a rapid COVID-19 test during the test. If a person refuses to do so, the person will be expelled from the camp.
  • If a person has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and has documentation to prove that, 100% refund will be provided prior to the camp, upon submission of documentation.All certificates and documents should be issued by a laboratory, written in English or Lithuanian and bear the name of the participant.
