There are options to stay in a dormitory style loft, single or double bedrooms or in shared rooms with 3 to 6 persons.

The classes are scheduled in the morning and late evening so that your afternoons are free to go for nature walks, visit the picturesque towns around, go canoeing, visit the lavender museum or just stay at the huge open air swimming pool, soak up the sun, read a book and relax.

Extra information:

Algemeene Danstechniek:
Klassieke dans is de basis voor vele dansvormen, hieruit krijg je specifieke oefeningen op het verbeteren van je houding- evenwicht/balans - pivots

Als dans is de Milonga de voorloper van de Argentijnse Tango.De houding en basispassen zijn in principe hetzelfde als de Tango, maar de figuren zijn minder complex.
Hij oogt sneller & levendiger omdat er doorgaand, zonder pauzes gedanst wordt, meestal met kleine passen op snelle, ritmische muziek.
