Easter Ensueños Project @ De Danswerkplaats Amersfoort
16121386_10154513076019263_636967906_oIt’s Easter weekend! We have more time to submerge into the world of Tango, start dreaming and do what we enjoy most: dancing 😏

Daniela & Raimund (Berlin) and Marian & Stefan (Nijmegen) meet in Amersfoort / The Netherlands for The Easter Ensueños Project!

The four Easter days offer seminars, milongas and lectures on tango and musicality. Even more than in the case of other social dances, the understanding of music is an important condition for an exciting and creative dance. Both parties are required to create the fascinating game together. That is why we deepen our access to music and explore the possibilities to enrich our dance.
Daniela & MarianConcept
We offer you a unique concept of workshops combined with lectures to get much more background information about the phenomenon “Tango Argentino”.
So you will listen to music, you will hear stories about that music and it’s protagonists and you will work on the possibilities how to express this music ithrough your very own dance.

The Easter weekend will start with a drop-in class on Friday.
To give you the opportunity to work consistently and without a hurry we organize the classes on Saturday and Sunday in the form of seminars which will stretch over the whole afternoon (with breaks of course).
And on Monday you get the chance to participate on a long audio-visual lecture about Tango Argentino given by Raimund Schlie.

Raimund is an experienced speaker who gives talks about Tango Argentino all over Europe and is well know by his ability to spice up the historical facts with nice little anecdotes. He also makes the relationships between the musicians and orchestra leader transparent which helps enormously understand what in fact was going in during the first decades of the 20th century in Buenos Aires.
Raimund & Stefan
But dancing makes hungry!
We’re planning to have an Easter Brunch on both Sunday & Monday. Please give us an indication if you plan to participate on the Easter Brunches.

We are very happy to announce that there is also the possibility to have dinner at the brand new restaurant KROAST on 200m distance from De Danswerkplaats. If you’re interested in joining us with the Saturday or Sunday dinner you can check the option below. If you prefer to make a reservation with KROAST directly you can follow this link to do so.
Don’t wait too long! They are the new hotspot in town and even though they’re not open yet they receive a lot of reservations.16145118_10154511977734263_1349415652_o
