Being Present in the Heart of the Experience…


Lizelot de Stigter
Founder and supervisor Healing Tango

Has been trained as a ballet dancer and has had an international career for the past 25 years as a Tango dancer and teacher. She has danced and worked with legendary dancers from the world of tango and developed a unique method of teaching based on that experience. 

The Tango became her path to the realization of spirituality, connection with the earth, sensuality, ecstasy and enlightenment. At the moment she is living her dream by using the essence of Tango and sharing it with others to get deep into the essence of ourselves, life and love.
She is considered by many to be a healer in her work, in which people can see themselves reflected in their wholeness.
She helps people to find the experiences of wholeness and freedom that are generated in the lessons through speaking images and metaphors in their daily lives, their relationships, and their work.
