"Tango is walking in an embrace. For us, savouring closeness and constantly reinterpreting musical variety is the essence of tango. Discover a dance that has no need of passionate and erotic cliches, but instead is an adventure that begins anew with every embrace, with every step."

 



Workshops for Saturday 10th November


Time 1.00 - 2.30pm  (90 minutes)

Caminar abrazados - Walking in an embrace

Tango is walking. During this workshops we’ll work on different aspects of the movement: an appropriate inner and outer posture, dissociation, relaxation, changing the length of your steps, smooth changes to the outer lanes and on the most important factor of well-being - the embrace. Our signature workshops is strongly recommended to anyone who has not yet worked with us and to all who want to ease into the work by focussing on yourself and the partner in this beautiful dance.

_______

Time 3.00 - 4.30pm / 4.45 - 6.15pm  (2 x 90 minutes)

Please turn!

In this fun and challenging class we will examine turned movements that are not based on the typical molinette structure, but curve our linear repertoire. We will curve synchronous and asynchronous walking, ochos and milonguero ochos and play with the centres of rotation in he couple. The goal is to transfer all your knowledge of linear movements to more compact moves for packed rondas and moments when you cannot just walk on.

We will adapt the level and amount of the input to the skills of each couple, so that dancers of all levels will get valuable advice. Those who have done classes on tuns with us before, will find this workshop very different!


Workshops for Sunday 11h November


Time 1.00 - 2.30pm  (90 minutes)

Rhythm, Syncopation & Phrase

Discovering the most important rhythmic variations and general structures of Tango music. This class is the perfect preparation for the last workshop of the weekend and will break up lots of old habits. Pre-requisite: the ability to communicate changes of speed and length in the walk by using the counter-body movement. We recommend workshop 1 (Caminar Abrazados) as a preparation. 

_______

Time 3.00 - 4.30pm  / 4.45 - 6.15pm  (2 x 90 minutes)

One Tango - Three Orchestras

Our new favourite workshop will help you to distinct different styles and important characteristics of tango music. We will examine one tango very deeply, get to know its history, structure, rhythmical variations and instrumentation in versions by three major tango orchestras.

This exciting class will deepen your musical understanding and bring new insights even for advanced dancers. You do not need a partner for this class: we will listen to music, discuss, move alone. There will also be practical advise for the dance that you can try out with a partner - but musical expression begins in your own mind and body. This is why the focus will not be on the WHAT (steps) but in the HOW (step dynamic, expression) and WHEN (speed, rhythmic variation) of your movements.
