Workshop description package (A)
Beginners

arrowRegister!

The idea of the beginners package is to focus on musicality. Through the music we will find will find inspiration and feel how fun it is to dance tango. You can be a complete beginner with no prior knowledge. Since we focuse mainly on musicality it can be interesting for those who already participated in tango course(s) and now wish to focuse on musicality.

  • Musicality, Rhythm & Phrases
  • The basic structure/elements of tango
  • Communication & Contact
  • Technique
  • Musicality & Tango Waltz
  • Musicality & Milonga
  • Exchange of roles

 

 

Workshop description package (B) Adv beg and
package (C) Intermediate/Advanced level

arrowRegister!

The idea of this year´s workshops is to give you something fun, playful, challenging and useful which will spice and add musicality to your dance. The content of the workshops is the same for all levels (from advanced beginners to intermediate/advanced). We advance from simple to more advanced exercises and steps so couples can choose and practise on a level comfortable and also challenging for them. We encourage partner changes within the same level.  You can sign up without partner and you will practice with participants on your own level if possible.

Sacadas as starting point for creative and fun foot play!

Workshop with Charlotte Rivero

The sacada is a choreographic element with a lot of possibilities for interplay and improvisation. The sacada  means action!  It sets things in motion and is generally in favor of the turn which means the couple find themselfes in a new situation with different possibilities. The workshop will be led progressively from simple to more advanced exercises.

  • Definition
  • Structure & Dynamic
  • Technique tools
  • Musicality
  • Leader & Follower sacada
  • Front & Side sacada  (all levels)
  • Back sacada (interm/ advanc level)
  • Exchange of roles

Tango de Barrio! 
Playful and creativel tango in mirror position!

Workshop with Sergio Segura and Matthew Grubler

Tango de Barrio is a very characteristic style created on the outskirts of the city of Buenos Aires. This playful and creative form of tango revives the beauty of mirror-image steps inspired on the everyday life of the 30s to 50s. In this unique workshop, leaders and followers will learn "tango in mirror position" which consists of symmetric and interchangeable steps between the two roles, originated in old male practices while enjoying the flirtatious musicality and peculiar dynamic of this style.

 

Front boleos as initiator of turns of direction!

Workshop with Ute Walter and
Nancy Lavoie

During the workshop we will work with front boleos as initiator of turns of direction for both. The workshop will cover:

  • Structure/Improvisation technique
  • Musicality
  • Technique for frontboleos
  • Work on assertive and receptive energies.
The workshop will be led progressively from simple to more advanced exercises.
