Dance Workshops : 

Our "Neo tango" works with principles such as circularity, moving MORE AROUND AND IN each other, a dance that grasps the space, with dynamics, a lively embrace, connecting, with elasticity too. All of the above give the steps more depth, color, and significance, and within the focused form of tango, freedom within the embrace, A MORE ACTIVE AND CREATIVE ROLE FOR EACH of the dance partners, in that way, finding a new vocabulary that fits our contemporary world. 
For this Neotango project in Bruges, we start from the (very traditional) principle that "everything is a giro": born from movement, musicality and the autonomy of the leader and the follower, we will find each other in an intimate and expressive dance, able to create even more freely in a very easy way, a principle that leads to a tango that opens your mind for a next level, a whole new universum.

"Blues for Tangueros" By Isabelle and Thierry

We feel that a lot of the music played during neotango parties can be danced using blues technique. Because of that, Blues dancing and Tango dancing are two dances that fit very well together cross fertilizing each other. Common to both dance, a very strong and full time connexion, a movement freedom, playing and creating based on music inspiration, all that being the source of a lot of pleasure widening your dancing possibilities.
This is why Isabelle and Thierry propose a blues initiation built for neo tango dancers. During the workshop you will learn the basis of the blues connexion and increase your palette of body movements with the goal of dancing even closer to the music following your inspiration.

  • Workshop themes

    • When does music inspire blues dancing
