Winterstage 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 grote succes van de zomereditie geven Laure Fourest en Koen Dhondt een volledige week dansworkshop op Domaine La Terriade, een verborgen paradijs in een klein dorpje in de regio Diois in Frankrijk. Bereid je voor op een geweldig week vol plezier, bijleren, lachen, mensen ontmoeten, lekker eten, sneeuw, sauna, en veel dansen!


Approximately 5 hours of dance lesson per day. 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.
This intensive week of dance is for experienced folk dancers who wish to take the time to develop and refine the body skills (posture and dance technique) necessary to embody the music more precisely and sensitively in couple 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.
This bodywork will also allow us to dive into the exploration of this great mishmash called "musicality" and 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 songs, to get out of our usual movements by developing new types of vocabularies, 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 concepts in greater depth.
Koen will also give optional trad dance sessions. He will teach the branle béarnais, also called branle d'Ossau, (basics and variations), and at least one other trad dance that we will choose together (rondeaux, congo, bourrées, sauts béarnais, …)

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, warming up, musicality, posture and body work
  • Koen: dances from the South West & Centre of France, improvisation, musicality & rhythmical 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, forró, … ). 

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

Er is een gratis opfriscursus op zaterdag 4 februari van 14 tot 16 uur, bedoeld voor minder ervaren maar snelle leerders. Ook een aanrader voor wie nog nooit een stage bij Koen of Laure heeft gevolgd.


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…
