Workshop offered by Nueva Guardia
Charlotte Pédrant is a professional dancer, with a multi-dances background ranging from classic, jazz, cabaret, pole dance and, of course, tango. She has been practising tango since her 17, and she now teaches it in Marseille.
She met Cédric in a... pole dance class!
Cédric Tellier teaches martial arts (kung fu, tai ji quan) and tango.
He also practises salsa, bachata, kizomba and brasilian zouk.
Neotango aims to open tango to different styles of music and dancing moves that one can find in traditional tango, playing a bit more on open/close embrace (abrazo abierto/cerrado). In their class, the teachers will use nuevo or alternative tango music so that dancers will become more familiar with those kinds of music and can develop their own musicality skillset.
- level 1 (called "Cortinas"): beginners or intermediary, without problems with tango basics and moves.
- level 2 (called "Tandas"): Intermediary or advanced, you already know some figures such as voleos, sacadas, volcadas.

Free extra class (by Davina & Phil):
"The man suggests, the woman enjoys and takes advantage of it! We want to teach you some keys to sharpen your imagination, your musicality and your creativity. It is a way to approach the freedom within the couple, to better share the experience. A so "neo" exercise!"
"Passionate by tango, I love dancing with its technical sophistication as much as I love its codes and its music. Tango being a social dance, it seems to me that the pleasure that we feel in milongas should also be found in class. I think classes are also important places for exchanging, where everyone comes with his own knowledge, motivation and nice mood." Miss D.
