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.

Given the success of the Neotango project last time, we organize a new and 2nd edition: with workshops, with aNeo Night and with Feldenkrais for tango. So, make a reservation in your calendar for 23-24-25th November to spend a weekend Neotango in De Koffiefabriek with Bennie & Astrid.

the Neotango project

on NEO: what is it all about? A somewhat confusing term containing themes of space, expression, equality, freedom and new figures in tango. Often it is narrowed down to only 'form' or 'style', but for us, it is much richer than that, building on the fundaments of the classical (more traditional) tango.

Within this neo-modern tango, we are exploring a (new?) interpretation of tango, always continuing, deeper or further, also on the physical level. Especially the role of the follower /the woman in tango /our society is an aspect we like to explore and combine with these contemporary times. In the weekend of 23-24-25th of November, we want to focus in the workshops more specifically on how to create in equality and connection, using techniques and tools, finding movement and more, to be used use to express this aspect of tango.


Feldenkrais for tango

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