This year, Marisa & Oliver will be joined by another famous couple of teachers: Veronica Vazquez & Damian Mechura. These 2 teaching couples complement each other very well.
Marisa van Andel & Oliver Koch are famous teachers from the Brussels’ tango school La Tangueria-Al compás del corazón and owners of La Tangueria and have a long experience in organising and teaching tango holidays. In their workshops they focus on instruments of dynamic and subtle leading and active and elegant following. They use the embrace and the frame to reach the optimal connection in the couple, to create a free and improvised dance. Thanks to their professional background at Rosas, they can rely on a variety of dancing techniques and improvisation tools. They often propose their own, original and creative movements and figures, without ever forgetting the importance of musicality.
Veronica Vazquez & Damian Mechura began dancing and working together in 2015, both sharing the same aim: transmit the legacy and passion for this dance to the students and the audience. They have been teaching in many schools, including famous La Viruta, and the University of La Plata. They have been resident tango teachers in Denmark and Switzerland, and gave workshops in all over Europe.
Veronica & Damian have participated in the Tango World Championships, resulting finalists in the Tango de Pista category.
In 2016 they were teaching and performing in different cities of USA and Europe.
With Marisa & Oliver and Veronica & Damian are teaching couples who complement each other perfectly. It is provided that every participant attends classes of both couples – 7,5 hours at a stretch so that the teachers can go in-depth into a theme.
The participants will be divided into 2 groups. Each group will have 7,5 hours workshops with each teaching couple for a total of 15 hours.
