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.
