Tango Intensives & Holidays

@ Mas de Mestre in Sommières/Villevieille, France

Tango-intensives and -holidays are a perfect blend of vacation and tango. Apart from the daily lessons, centre stage goes to enjoying the wonderful ambience of the surroundings, the relaxed socializing within the group and the evening´s dance after a fine meal. This is a perfect setting for an unforgettable tango experience. The "intensives" focus on work, the "holidays" allow for more time to relax.

The enchanting Mas de Mestre is set in picturesque garden, close to the small medieval town Sommières and near to Nîmes and Montpellier. Is is in comfortable driving distance to many interesting historical sites and the sea. The Mas de Mestre was renovated tastefully, combining traditional style with modern art. Check out the website.

Please note: The Mas de Mestre is no hotel, but a Gîte, a guest house typical for rural France. There is no daily cleaning of the rooms or changing of towels. Furthermore, the normal double rooms are equipped variably: Some have a private bathroom, whilst others share a bath with one other room but have an additional sitting-room-area.

In 2017, we offer three stays. Please scroll down to find all.

Tango Intensive - June 7-11, 2017

Workshop description:
Change role!
In this class, we are going to work on the quality of our tango: embrace, communication, the walk, musicality... But this time, we invite you to change roles in order to experience both sides of the interaction.
In our opinion, the understanding of both roles is paramount to the development as a sensitive leader as well as an active follower. But even more: we want to encourage you to actually use both roles on the social dance floor. It will be fun and challenging alike!
This class is suited for all levels. We invite regular dance-couples who want to experience a role change as well as same-sex dance-couples or single dancers. We are not only going to change roles, but also partners in order to better the communicative skills.

Program:
There will be 17 hours of classes, one short unit each on the day of arrival and departure, as well as 4,5 hours per full day (Thursday - Saturday).
We have arranged for full board: a tasty breakfast, a simple meal at noon and a 3-course dinner in the evening. Our cook Marjorie will surprise us with a regional, tasty cuisine.
In the evenings, we will either dance at the Mas de Mestre or visit Milongas in Nimes and Montpellier.

Bookings & price (per person):
• Regular double room: 690€
• Additional fee for stay in single room or in the apartment for two: + 55€
• Discount for the smallest room (private bath, but no private wc): - 45€
