A learning and dancing weekend 
with Maria Filali & Sigrid Van Tilbeurgh     

A weekend to dive deep into both your Tango Dance Roles with Totally in Tango and ENTRE-DOS / DUO DE TANGO - Maria Filali & Sigrid Van Tilbeurgh - five classes, one guided practica, and four milongas all in one place.

Our teacher team has been part of the European tango scene for many years, and they have embraced double-role dancing, and teaching, to its core. This is the third time that they are with Totally in Tango. 

Folkestone is easily reached from the mainland through the Chunnel (3.5 km to the hotel) or by ferry to Dover from Calais or Dunkerque (10 km to the hotel). There are direct train connections from London. We expect a mix of dancers from Europe and from the United Kingdom. Together we create a melting pot of Tango Aficionados.

Our Teachers: Maria Filali & Sigrid Van Tilbeurgh

These 2 Tangueras share their views on both roles in Tango.
Over the years, thanks to their solid background as academically trained dancers, they individually
specialized in transmitting the « invisible that changes everything »....

«... It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye..."
(Quote from: Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

Their aim as teachers is to help dancers grow in their own tango by discovering and/or questioning, concepts and beliefs, sometimes changing one's perspective, to give sense and deepness to the experience of tango.
They always relate the concepts studied in class back to the idea of connection by focusing on what the two roles have in common, rather than breaking them down separately. They also address personal and psychological issues on the different dimensions of both roles.
What connects them and makes their approach so special is a somatic approach to movement and the body in space. Their Tango teaching is enriched notably by the study of BODY MIND CENTERING® for Sigrid, GYROKINESIS® and GYROTONIC® for Maria.
This allows them to provide tango dancers with a deep and joyful experience of the body in space, from a cellular and bio-mechanical approach to an energetic and poetic perspective.
By doing so, they focus on connecting the structure of tango with emotion and musicality.
Their very personal approach makes the study of tango with them a fascinating insight into a very coherent and specific, yet completely universal and contemporary dance.
Join us for an unforgettable time together!

The   Program

The   Venue

Folkestone in winter is attractive for nostalgia, seagull cries, windy walks on the beach, visiting the white cliffs, and time with old and new friends in a welcoming atmosphere.  

The event takes place in the Grand Burstin Hotel in Folkestone. We stayed at the hotel in the summer of 2023 and were charmed by the quiet glory of the old wing where we will dance. The staff was helpful and warmed immediately to the idea of having a tango dance weekend at their venue.  The hotel has a 2-star rating, and they offered us a reduced rate on the rooms (details below). ​For your comfort, we will bring over our '3 diamonds’ dancefloor. It is a first-grade wooden dancefloor, resting on half tennis balls for a soft, bouncy feel.  You will keep on dancing for sure. We will also bring in the sound system.
