Andres Molina y Natacha Lockwood

Bio & Details

Andres and Natacha met four years ago in Buenos Aires milongas.
She is from Paris. He is from Buenos Aires. This encounter will be a blast. Early 2015 they decided to work together, based in Paris, to develop and share a renewed vision for tango. They look for an organic and cheerful dance, focusing on sensations and musicality, yet keeping present the essence of tango, sparing superficialities and clichés. When they dance, they actively listen and inspire each other.
Their quality of movement is a combination of smoothness and power, grounding and presence, creativity and expression. Their way of teaching is based on precise internal body technique, which allows comfort and fluidity individually and as a couple, as well as communication and improvisation.
Socially open and fun, their classes are both challenging and playful and bring practical tools to improve and develop the dance.”

René-Marie Meignan y Tania Heer

Bio & Details

René-Marie was born in a theatre, into a family of artists: actors, theatre directors, musicians, painters, dancers… His youth resonates with the live arts: drama, music, and dance. His different artistic experiences have led him to travel the world and it is Berlin that he discovers himself and learns the Argentine tango, notably with Matias Facio and Ismael Ludman. He then developed his dance concept with masters such as Corina Herrera Horacio Godoy,  Moira Castellano, Gustavo Naveira & Giselle Anne, Ruben & Sabrina Veliz, Ariadna Naveira & Fernando Sanchez, Carlitos Espinoza & Noelia Hurtado, Mariano Chicho Frumboli & Juana Sepulveda.

René-Marie is part of the new generation of dancers that represents tango in Europe today. He teaches regular workshop cycles in France and Switzerland as well as the LABOTANGO in Lyon with Tania. In addition to his activities in theatre directing within his company La Mer est ton Miroir, he participates in the organization of the Alchemie Tango Festival in Prague.His dance draws from a great musicality an energy that is both intense and sensitive.

Tania is a dancer, translator, and epicurean. She started dancing tango in early 2012 during a semester of independent studies in Buenos Aires and has been in love with it ever since. Tango came as a rediscovery of a life-long passion that had been left aside during her schooling; as she studied tap, capoeira and classical ballet through the Royal Academy of Dancing program for over ten years. Since 2012 T’s embarked on a search for self-improvement and worked with a number of established maestros including Horacio Godoy, Moira Castellano, Corina Herrera, Ruben & Sabrina Véliz, Ariadna Naveira & Fernando Sánchez, Sebastián Jimenez, Maria Ines Bogado, Ines Muzzopappa and much more. Tango also plays well with her gripping need of discovery and has opened the doors even further for an already experienced traveler, who now has an extra reason to go travel the world.
