Do you find yourself marvelling, open-mouthed, at the sinuous, sensuous movements of the intertwining limbs of Argentina’s national dance??? Have you already taken a few classes (or none) but find yourself awkwardly crashing into your partner—or the floor—rather than eliciting gasps of admiration at your twinkle-toed skills?? Then this workshop is a must-do!
Turn the participants at your next milonga green with envy by learning from Argentinean dancer Eva! The workshop will cover the roles of both dancers, with the emphasis on communication and improvisation, and starting from the very basics.
As proper posture is key to dancing tango, this will our first focus, to be followed by techniques from contact tango, so that you may move more comfortably with your dance partner. Lastly, Eva will teach you a range of techniques to help you understand the fundamental mechanisms of tango and find your own individual way of dancing it.
This course is suitable for intermediate and above students, who have done at least a year of tango classes. No need to come with a partner!
Arrival is in the evening of 20 August, and we will start with dinner. The course will end with lunch on the 25 August.
Tango classes will be from 10 to 12 am, and from 7 to 8 pm. Your remaining time will be free to explore the area or to rest. For more information or things to do in the area, please check here.
