Sonja Bruyninckx and Sven Breynaert

1238178 645165922185085 635026149 nSonja Bruyninckx and Sven Breynaert (Belgium) have been dancing since they were little. Both had the opportunity to practice several dance styles during their youth. Sonja's classical ballet education began at the age of 7. Sven's hip hop and street dance background dates from about the same age. His Argentine roots - his belated grand-mother was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina - were explored as of 2006...

They started to dance Argentinean tango in 2006. They have been teaching since 2009 in Brussels and Bruges. In 2011 they decided to dedicate their professional lives completely to the passion of the tango. They are regularly asked for performances, demonstrations, workshops, etc. in Belgium, as abroad. Their clear and precise didactics are the key to their successful workshops. Since 2009 they visit Buenos Aires each year to improve their dancing and performance skills.

In February 2013 they performed -as the first Belgian couple ever- at one of Buenos Aires' most renowned festivals: Misterio Tango festival (check the website: www.misteriotango.com/artistas.html).
In the first half of 2013, Sonja and Sven are invited to dance at FestivalitoDelMar, the festival on top of the North Sea, (http://www.festivalitodelmar.com/invitados.html), Prague's Tango Alchemie (http://tangoalchemie.com) and Poreç' Mediterranean Summer Tango Festival (http://www.summertango.com/instructors-performers).

A long search for their style identity led them to in what appears as a simple and a musical dance. In this style they embrace tradition with dynamics and flexibility.
The energy and love they share as a couple, resorts among the spectators during their performances."

"We cannot describe our style into one specific one. Our different dance backgrounds met somewhere in the middle and it works for us. This unusual combination defines our dancing style, going from classical closed embrace salon style to modern tango. We emphasize on combining fun, musicality, joy and emotion in one tango!" - Sonja & Sven.
