Portugal is home to some of Europe’s finest beaches, steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Combined with fantastic facilities and exciting excursion options Portugal is an unbeatable destination. The local climate offers over 260 days of sunshine, making this the ideal destination for all Performing Arts group tours.
Visions groups are based in the wonderful beach resort of Praia Vieira, centrally located between the fascinating cities of Lisbon and Porto. Our resort is situated 50km, northwest of Lisbon in the village of Vieira Leiria, which has a number of shops, cafes, bars and supermarkets. Only 100m outside of the hotel, you will find Portugal’s breath-taking white beaches. Here, our groups can enjoy beach games, beach volleyball and other great activities in their spare time.
Accommodation in Portugal is usually the Cristal Praia Resort – for more details please click here
Our Academy tours take in both Lisbon, http://www.visitlisboa.com Obidos, www.obidos.pt as part of your tour. For the Art students amongst you, these are fantastic places to visit and sketch. For Dance, Drama and music, both venues are inspirational.

All of our Academy tours include five tailor-made workshops, along with a full day excursion to Lisbon. Visit the Lisbon museums and get to know the main subjects of Portugese cultural heritage. Come and discover the history of Casa Pia de Lisboa and Casapiana culture (visitable collection, temporary exhibitions, library and historical archive) is a firm favourite with all of our groups and will inspire your students to be creative and enhance your Academy tour to Portugal. There are over 7 museums in Lisbon alone. We aim to make your tour a fantastic experience with your students and show you the Visions Difference!
Vieria Lieira is the ideal destination to study this specific art form. Our drama tutors are masters in this genre and can provide educational drama sessions to enrich students’ knowledge beyond the classroom boundaries. Set in a colourful area of Europe with wonderful scenery the area can be used to add an exciting dimension to the course content.
Visions Academy utilises top quality dance studios in the area surrounding our accommodation. The Portugese passion for movement and music is demonstrated throughout our resident tutor team, who are able to create with you a memorable and challenging dance programme that incorporates your group requirements.
Students find the stunning beach locations of Praia Vieira very inspirational. Lisbon and Obidos are a great source of culture and sheer excitement. Our tutors, who are wonderful artists in their own right, can give the benefit of their own experience to enhance many aspects of the curriculum.
Visions song school is as popular as ever, as many students enjoy singing by the beach or near the pool. Percussion using ordinary, everyday objects is another favourite aspect, with students having great fun exploring the region for such implements. For performance tours, we have a variety of exciting venues with appreciative audiences.
This will include Dance, Drama, Art and Music. With the expert guidance of our professional Academy tutors, your Academy workshops will be carefully personalised to suit the ability of your group. Each workshop lasts for one and a half hours, and takes place in first class studios in the surrounding area of Vieira Lieira.
