Tango in medieval castle

April 6, 2008

This weekend is the Brussels Tango Festival, I’m going tonight and I went the first 2 days. The opening night was great with a good atmosphere. The second night was not ideal, the floor was sloping and slippery and sticky at the same time. It was of course too crowded with unexperienced dancers before the demos, but that got better after the demo’s as usual on friday and saturday.

Concert Noble Very nice opening night at Concert Noble.

But that’s not all, there was more tango in Belgium, yesterday, saturday, the first dance event in the past 200 years was organized in the Ovidius room at the charming medieval castle of Horst by El Rumbo.

A beautiful setting, the night was introduced by master story teller Ivo Hermans of De Koerier van Navarra, linking the castle to tango in his own very unique historical and poetic way. Overall a great night with the old El Rumbo gang 😉
