Planned activities

  • La Tangueria

    Community building / Tango dance workshop

    In cooperation with dance school La Tangueria we organise 2 dance workshops. During this free trial lesson you will discover the real Argentine tango which is based on connection and improvisation and not on choreography or structures as in the ballroom dances.

    No dance knowledge is required to take part, even if you think you have two left feet... you might be surprised by your hidden dance talent!
    Wear normal casual clothes and street shoes that are attached to the foot.
    You can come to the tango class in couple, but also without a partner, because everyone can choose to learn the leader role or the follower role (or alternately try both).

    Location: La Tangueria, 239 Chaussée de Jette/Chaussée de Jette, 1080 Brussels (near Simonis)
    La Tangueria, Brussels | 20:00 | For  Upkot & Upliving tenants

The newsroom of the socialist newspaper Dagblad Vooruit first moved into the original building in 1931. Printing took place at 'Het Licht' printing press, located right behind it. Today, this art deco monument with a unique design has been repurposed as the home of the Upgrade Academy. It also houses Ghent company Nexxworks.
