Zomerstage Folk & tango met Laure Fourest & Koen Dhondt

De volledige informatie is beschikbaar in het Frans en het Engels. Sommige onderdelen hebben we ook in het Nederlands vertaald.
In the week before Gennetines, Laure Fourest and Koen Dhondt are giving a 5-day dance workshop at Domaine La Clé de Sol in Marsaz, a small village in the Drôme region in the south of France. Get ready for a great stay full of joy and fun, learning, laughing and meeting people, and lots of dancing!


Approximately 5 hours of dance lesson per day. The final program will be decided on the spot according to the suggestions, preferences and/or needs of the participants. The common thread throughout the workshop is learning how to guide/follow and communicate well in the dance. Laure and Koen will give individual suggestions and corrections, so that everyone progresses.
Different variations for couple dances make up the main theme:
  • Folk couple dances: rhythmical variations & musicality
  • Improvisation techniques
  • Folkanatomy: Posture and body work
  • Tangurka: Variations for mazurka inspired by tango
  • Valsango: Variations for the folk waltz inspired by tango

Each teacher will also give classes around his or her own speciality. We have 2 rooms and can therefore separate the group

  • Laure: Argentine Tango: discovery group for beginners & group for intermediates 
  • Koen: dances from the South West & Centre of France, musicality & variations in couple dances, …

Afhankelijk van de deelnemers zal de cursus in het Frans of het Engels worden gegeven, met indien nodig korte vertalingen in de andere taal. Koen en Laure zijn vlot meertalig, dus de individuele correcties krijg je zeker in de taal van jouw keuze.


Stage voor gevorderde folkdansers, en voor getalenteerde halfgevorderde dansers die snel leren.

Je moet de basispas van de wals vlot beheersen, vertrouwd zijn met leiden en/of volgen, en liefst ook openstaan om van rol te wisselen. 

We gaan ervan uit dat je minstens 2 jaar intensieve danservaring -met lessen en stages- nodig hebt om dit niveau te bereiken. Die ervaring kan je eventueel deels opgedaan hebben in andere koppeldansen (tango, salsa, forro, … ). 

Geen eerdere tango ervaring is vereist, want voor de tangolessen voorzien we een beginnersgroep en een groep voor halfgevorderden.


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