October 1st - 4th 2016 - 2 times 90 minutes each day – total of 12hours
Use this exceptional opportunity to develop your TANGO skills through our four-day semi-private seminar of intensive and closely related classes. MAX 6 COUPLES!!!
Required level : intermediate/advanced

Everyday from Saturday 1st of October to Tuesday 4th of October 2016, Jean Sébastien offers a four day seminar aimed at developing your TANGO over time. Here we will continuously develop the same themes over time, to ensure progression through deep and concentrated work under professional supervision.

The seminar will take place in Montpellier - one of the most beautiful southern France city.

The work will focus on improving these 4 tango elements:
Giros – saccadas – boleos – colgadas
Each element will be first developed apart from each other, and then gradually mixed all together. These elements are chosen to give the seminar two main directions:
- Developing a strong and sensitive tango technique to share our feelings within the couple.
- Improving the balance between being active and still being feeling and listening what our partner needs.
The 4 elements will give us a full lighting of the tango technique regarding the posture, the embrace and the ability to share a dynamic movement.

Price per person: 280€ including 8 x 90-minute-classes (3 hours per day, a total of 12 hours of teaching) and one practica each day.

All the classes will be given in English
