Our Dutch-French teacher Tim Dany:
'From my secondary years I followed Folk dancing and soon I taught in the EV in Belsele. Later when I studied Geography at UGent I taught Salsa.
In the early twenties I met Lieske and Yannick with whom I could finally channel all my dance passion through the mysterious Argentine dance virus - called Tango. After many lessons in Buenos Aires, and countless maestros later, I started teaching in Nosotros tango Brussels.
It is fantastic for me to teach at Tangorrion on Friday now, it feels like coming home a bit. '
Tim Dany about Argentine Tango:
'I mainly searched for the improvisation character of dance, the uncertainty, which means that you can most of all experience the current moment, and challenge yourself as much as part of a couple-room universe: comparable to an in-depth conversation with interesting elements keep on popping up, like a fundamental meditation that throws you into the universe, like a loving look of a loved one that lasts forever ... "

I worked and work with many great dancers, such as Nadia Cronidu (Athens), Ezgi Er (Izmir), Eugenia Ramirez Miori (Brussels - Buenos Aires), ...
