PROGRAM

Argentine tango is an improvisational dance, a subtile game between leader and follower and the music on the dance floor. In the studio of L’Huys Préau we will work with 2 levels: a Basic Group (Beginners/Intermediate) and an Advanced Group. During the day all classes are scheduled and every evening there is a Tango Salon to practise your steps and enjoy the music.

* During the Mornings the Technic Classes are scheduled, about the posture and the embrace, the technique of walking, of turning (ochos & giros) and of course of the embellishments (adornos) for leaders and followers.

* In the afternoon the regular Tango Classes are scheduled; we will analyse some motives and combinations of steps and translate them into the music…we will play, combine and interprete the rich material of tango.

* Every evening there is a Tango Salon in the beautiful studio of L’Huys Préau with wooden floor; the bar will be open, the teachers will be there for some coaching and we will listen and dance to the beautiful and varied music of DJ El Chino. Regularly Tango Orchestra Préau, conducted by Kay Sleking, will perform in our salons and classes.
