Weekend Special Tango

On a regular basis Tango Alegre organises next to weekly classes also 'tango specials': workshops Women Only / Men Only, intensive weekends in Belgium or abroad, an afternoon Feldenkrais for tango, Workshop specials, enz.

the Neotango project: 3rd edition. Because we care, and because we like to see you enjoy even more that beautiful (tango) music.
This edition: on the circularity of moves.. and some spiraling too! Workshops on Sat-Sun 13-14th of April.

the Neotango project


The "NEW TANGO" works with principles such as circularity, moving around each other, a dance that grasps the space, dynamics, with a lively embrace, connecting and particular, with elasticity too. All of the above give the steps more depth, color and significance, and within the focused form of tango, a freedom within the embrace and the roles, in that way finding a new vocabulary that fits our contemporary world.

Circular versus linear moves. Not so much frontal, but dancing around and through each other, whilst following the roundness of the embrace. The spiral turns into the ground, at the same time creating length upwards, and as such giving a well-deserved alegre to the tango.


We will work with 2 different circular moves: one born from rythm and steps, staccato and playful, the other from ocho, sacada, wrap, boleo and barrida. Once you've got it, this circularity gives feeling and direction to the dance, and it brings every - even simple - tango move so much more alive, within a circle of connection.

Feldenkrais for tango

These workshops are a worthwhile basis, not only for tango, but also for every form of movement and dance!

For a neotango from within.
