TangoDJCéline DEVEZE will teach this workshop.

The Dj plays a very important part in a successful evening. Thanks to his musical programme, he takes control over the energy and the milonga, and he is responsible for the smoothly-working course of the dance.

Such a perception is fundamental.
« Knowing how to read » what the dancers wish for on the dance floor is what the workshop aims at. Hence the milonga can be a success. 
A minimum of 5 registrations on 8th August is required to maintain the DJ Pass Workshop.

Sessions opened to new DJS or future DJS  looking for further  training. The aim of these sessions is to get to know the various approaches to put tango music on during a MUSICAL  SET (Milonga)

The study of these techniques will be based on construction, order, and possible tandas sequences so as to perfectly adjust the energy of  a milonga, at night or in the afternoon,  according to the richness of the different musical energies and colours of  Tango orchestrations .

1/ 1h 30 of logistic, technical and historical study of tango music.
