Level: intermediate and advanced
Tango weekend ‘De Veste’ is named after the beautiful location of the weekend, in the city of Apeldoorn. It’s attuned to our intermediate weekends as a follow up, but it is open to all intermediate and advanced dancers. The weekend offers good opportunities to improve your basic techniques and your mastery of the steps and sequences that we focus on this weekend.
De Veste has a very nice dance hall, and a separate bar where we have our lunches and tea/coffee breaks. The surroundings of Apeldoorn are very beautiful, with heath and forest. Perfect for a nice weekend together or a longer stay.
Whereas the program of our beginner and intermediate weekends is always more or less the same, our ‘De Veste’ weekends have a new program each time. It offers an opportunity to those who are unable to follow regular weekly classes, to learn all the important tango techniques and movements.
However, practice is important if you want to learn to dance tango well. Therefore, if you don’t have the opportunity to follow weekly classes, we strongly advice you, instead, to dance regularly at milongas (tango dance events). Practice makes perfect!
