Tango summer classes with Lucho & Gilda

Tango summer classes with Lucho & Gilda


World Dance Company


Last time they were teaching together in Göteborg was in 2009 and we are very happy to welcome them back: Gilda Stillbäck and Lucho Lucero.

The approach of Lucho and Gilda is based on their respective backgrounds: contact improvisation and contemporary dancing. The uniqueness of their pedagogie lies in the deep knowledge of the body they developped. They focus on creating your own dance from a technique work adapted to your own body, a musical development revealing your own sens of musicality. The workshops will always have a ground work on developing the sensitivity of your communication, to create confortable movements in the couple.

All the workshops will be held on Mondays-Tuesdays-Wednesdays in weeks 32-33-34, at Oceanen, Stigbergstorget, 8. They are all composed of an intense class, followed with a time to practice and receive individual feedback from Gilda and Lucho.

For all classes, we will open the room 30 minutes before the class starts to give you the time to warm-up.
