He started his career as a professional tango musician and then moved into the dance. Currently Lucas Malec is a full-time tango dancer and teacher. He has taught and DJ’d in Buenos Aires and all around Europe.

In Amsterdam he has a Tango school (Tinta Roja) where he regularly works with top level dancers and guest teachers.

We are pleased that Lucas will be giving a special workshop on musicality on Saturday afternoon. As a musician, he is able to explain and translate into movements the different emotions, layers and nuances in the music; as a dancer he is also able to translate this into the physical technique which will enable you to apply this knowledge directly into your dance.
