Posted 20.08.2012 by Hjard Jensen in Uncategorized

På vegne av klubben rettes det en stor takk til alle som hjalp til med å gjøre helgen med Fausto og Stephanie til et vellykket arrangement. En spesiell takk til Fausto og Stephanie for gleden, entusiasmen og den grundige personlige oppfølgingen under helgens kurs, og ikke minst en drivende flott oppvisning. Hjertlig takk også til DJ’ene som sørget for god stemning på milongaene både fredag og lørdag.

Fausto and Stephanie in Trondheim, September 28-30, 2012

We are happy to announce that Fausto Carpino (Syracuse, Italy) and Stephanie Fesneau (Paris, France) are coming to teach at Trondheim tangoklubb this autumn. It is the first time Stephanie visit us in Trondheim, while Fausto was here 2 years ago; a warm welcome to them both!

Fausto and Stephanie dedicate themselves to transmit their passion to others. They believe that the connection, musicality and technique are the keys to fully appreciate the beauty of tango. In their classes they want to concentrate on how to be comfortable inside the embrace, based on the logic and naturalness of the movement.(
