Celine and Alexis

We are very glad to welcome again Celine Giordano and Alexis Quezada in Riga!

During this weekend we will have workshops, several milongas and group dinner, as well as it will be possible to have private lessons with Celine and Alexis. So be ready for saturated, interesting, useful and heartwarming weekend! :)

Here is what Celine and Alexis says about themselves and their work:

"Alexis is Chilean, living in Barcelona for 17 years and Celine is French.

We have been teaching together for more than 10 years!

Being social tango teachers is our main work, traveling mostly on week-end to do what we love: transmitting our vision of a subtle, comfortable, rich in sensations and very tasty tango.

Our teaching is based on solid knowledge of the anatomy of movement, musicality & musical interpretation and the technique of tango useful for social dancers.

In our classes, through dedicated exercises and specific images and postures, participants explore the invisible! such as grounding, connection, energy management…

We attach great importance to giving as much interesting information to followers as to leaders and to making everyone feel what we explain.

This is why we have special attention and we dance with each participant. All in a warm and relaxed atmosphere!"
