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.

Na het succes van de vorige edities geven Laure Fourest en Koen Dhondt een volledige week dansworkshop in La Clé de Sol in Marsaz, een klein dorpje in de Drôme regio Frankrijk. Bereid je voor op een geweldig week vol plezier, bijleren, mensen ontmoeten, lekker eten, zon en veel dansen!


Approximately 5 hours of dance lesson per day: folk couple dances, tango & traditional dances. There will be two half days free to go swimming or explore the area! Lots of free practice time. Each morning will start with 30 minutes of body warm-up (stretching, massage, etc).

This week's workshop aims to provide you with all kinds of tools and experiences to enrich your way of dancing, mainly in couple dances, but also in some trad dances. The main purpose of the tango classes offered is to refine your body skills in the folk couple dances.

  • Further refine your body awareness to gain more freedom, precision and comfort 
  • Deepen your knowledge of each of the couple dances and learn to give relief to your dance by adapting it to their specificities
  • Develop your ability to guide and/or follow, and apply it to new variations
  • Refine your musical listening skills and expand your rhythmic vocabulary
  • Work on your ability to improvise while doing justice to the specific tastes of each dance
  • Explore the specific movements and body styles of some traditional dances

This bodywork will be done via a diversion through the practice of Argentine Tango (no previous experience necessary), because it allows us to explore the finesse and precision of the connection.

The work on body awareness in dance will allow us to dive into the exploration of this great mishmash called "musicality" and of the dialogue that we, as dancers, are led to initiate with the musical proposals that are made to us: to open our ears, to become aware of the rhythmic and melodic richness of the pieces, to get out of our usual movements by developing new types of vocabulary, to be able to choose the musical elements that we want to interpret, etc…

In our opinion, what makes a beautiful couple dance is the comfort of the abrazo, the quality of the connection, and the harmony found by the three of us: you, me and the music. This workshop will explore these three notions in greater depth.

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

  • Laure: musicality, possibilities of improvisation, posture and bodywork in couple dancing, Argentine tango (at the service of folk dances) and morning body warm-ups.
  • Koen: dances from the South West & Centre of France, improvisation, musicality & rhythmical variations in couple dances, …
  • All participants can have 10 minutes of intensive individual coaching with each teacher on the subject of your choice

A part of the programme will be fixed on the spot according to the proposals, preferences and/or needs of the participants. Laure and Koen will give individual suggestions and corrections, so that everyone progresses.

Other activities
  • Bal open for external dansers. Reservation necessary.
  • Practica – a folk ball with recorded music – on most of the other evenings

De stage zal in het Frans gegeven worden, met af en toe korte vertalingen van de essentie indien nodig. 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, forró, … ). 

Geen eerdere tango ervaring is vereist, want voor de tangolessen voorzien -indien nodig- 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…
