May 9 | 17:15 – 18:30 | René & Gabriëlle
Join this workshop with this Amsterdam couple. René & Gabriëlle have been advocates of Neo Tango for years. It is a true joy to work with them and their never ending enthousiasm.
René belongs to the first generation of tango dancers in Amsterdam since its rediscovery in the mid eighties, who worked together with old Argentinian maestros as Antonio Todaro and Pepito Avellaneda.
Since 2007 René & Gabriëlle run their own tangoschool in Amsterdam, named TangoTalks, a dialogue without words.
Although based on the priciples of (traditional) Argentine tango, we organise a lot of activities in and beside our school concerning so called neo- and cross-over tango, like concerts and performances. We support and love to dance on live music and went several times on tour with tangojazz band Tango Extremo. Our approach to tango intends to contribute to the development of an contemporary tango culture in the Netherlands.
