So you think you can tango?

The tension between leading and following and how the Argentinian Tango can help you: you will experience this during this study afternoon in the series of Who’s afraid of Art?

Lecture ‘Leadership in organisations'

Director of education Human Resources dr. Renee de Reuver will start the afternoon by a lecture about management theories about leadership in organisations. After that, we will go on the floor to experience personally how to manage leading the other or to follow. What is easy and what is problematic about that?

Workshop Argentinian tango

In this workshop of TangoToolsTraining we will use the Argentinian tango to get a closer look at our way of communicating. In contrast to the ballroom tango, the Argentinian tango is based on improvisation. There are no fixed patterns, only steps that can be combined in infinite ways. The leader initiates, the follower reacts, and in order to be able to dance together, both dance partners have to communicate with each other very well.

We will play with these leading and following principles in order to discover how you take the lead without being a ‘bitch’ or how you will earn respect by your superior. Also very suitablefor the ones among you who think that you cannot dance!
