Congo de Captieux

Workshop Congo de Captieux & Luxeir with variations by Koen Dhondt


In parallel:
  • Learning the basics for those who don't know this dances yet
  • Refreshing/practicing and also rhythmic variations (easy and complex) for those who already know the choreography
A dance with figures, originating from the contredanse, the Congo de Captieux borrows for its movement the steps of the rondeau à deux from the Landes de Gascogne (Southwest of France). As for its choreography, which favours the meeting and the game between two couples of dancers, it has the particularity of introducing a dramatic dimension which is similar to… the pursuit of love! (description by Philippe Marsac)
The Congo de Luxeir is a similar dance from the same region.

Practical Info


We suggest all participants bring something to share with each other for tea, 

The Maalbeek Cultural Center does not allow people to bring their own drinks. Please respect this request. This semester, Frisse Folk offers water for free to participants in the Maalbeek.
The bar (coffee, tea, soft drinks, beer, wine) will be open throughout the day.


Our workshops in Brussels are usually given in French, with translations into Dutch or English if necessary. Koen is fluent in 5 languages, so you will get individual feedback in the language of your choice.


It is necessary to master the step of the rondeau in couple. No knowledge of Congo required.

Dance Partner

Il n’est pas nécessaire de s'inscrire en couple. On changera souvent de partenaire . Vous pouvez donc vous inscrire seul, à deux, entre amis …

Je moet je niet samen met een partner inschrijven voor deze stage. Er wordt regelmatig van partner gewisseld. Je kan dus alleen inschrijven, per twee, met vrienden…
