Message from Carsta from La Academia
We are currently working on a solution so that we can additionally dance outside during the nightly quiet time (weekdays + Sundays from 10 pm, Fridays + Saturdays from 11 pm, and Sunday lunchtime (Sunday 1 – 3 pm).
Alternatively, you can always dance inside in the usual setting.
Nico will support us with his expertise and skills.
Plan A) The DJ will play on an APP and the music will still be heard very quietly. For dancing, you can log in through your smartphone and your own headset, and adjust the sound level to your own desire. For this a local network via an internet-free WLAN will be used.
Plan B) is a radio station above the dance floor, all dancers would then need a small portable radio (the size of a mobile phone provided by us) with their own headphones.
We will let you know in good time which version it will be. We prefer Plan A. We will test the whole thing in test milongas beforehand.
The event is fully booked!!!
