Tango Factory 2019

Voltastraat 8, 1050 Elsene

SEASON 2019 - 2020

TANGO FACTORY present the new course cycle 2019 -2020 

Although the name might suggest otherwise, TANGO FACTORY is a school on a individual level. We like to see every student as a dancer in our tango family.

Our priority is the quality of the courses, for this reason we work on 3 aspects: 

1 - We have a limit of 10 couples for group courses and 5 couples for semi-private courses. This allows us to visit each couple several times during the classes, in order to advise each couple as well as on an individual basis. In addition, teachers do not only talk and explain to students, they also dance with them; 

2- The quality of our teachers: they all have a great pedagogical experience; 

3- The themes and didactic of the courses are programmed in advance: we set objectives for each term and then develop them throughout the term course by course. In other words, the courses are programmed and designed organically for the entire term and not individually from week to week. Each course consists of two parts: a first technical part; a second part characterized by the development of the figure we are working on and in which we apply the technique worked on in the first part of the course

You may think of stretching as something performed only by runners or gymnasts. But we all need to stretch in order to protect our mobility and independence. "A lot of people don't understand that stretching has to happen on a regular basis.

COURSE "El Tango de antes"

Thee feeling and the roots of tango:

Friday from 19:00 to 20:30 

TEACHERS Flávia Morari & Lucas Malec

In this course we will explore the reasons why people talk about dancing with the old milongueros feels so great. Both for leader and followers. We will choose a different milonguero every week and analyse their style and moves and how with time these moves became a defining characteristic of tango and are used now a days by profesional and social dancers all over the world. But mainly we will focus in understanding the mind set that make them find their style and why dancers from all generations in argentina always choose to dance with them and talk about how confortable the feeling is. It is also interesting to point out that many of them were dancing at the same time that the music was being composed, so it is fair to say that the music influenced their dance as much as their moves influenced the composers.
