Do you find yourself marvelling, open-mouthed, 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 dexterity?? Then this workshop is a must-do!
Turn the participants at your next milonga green with envy by learning from Argentinean dancer Eva, who will teach you a range of techniques that will allow you to understand the fundamental mechanisms of tango and find your own individual way of dancing it.
The workshop will cover the roles of both dancers, with the emphasis on communication and improvisation, and starting from the very basics.
This course is suitable for complete beginners and people who have done up to a year of tango classes. No need to come with a partner.
It can be taken on its own or combined with the posture and movement workshop.
Optional morning course: If you want to combine this course with two hours (10 to 12 am) of improving body posture and moving more efficiently, that is possible as well. This might be the ideal preparation for the tango classes later on in the day. You are also more then welcome to try out a class the first day, see if you like it!
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 6 to 8 pm except the last day from 3 to 5 pm. Your remaining time will be free to explore the area, to rest or to join the posture and body improvement classes in the morning. For more information or things to do in the area, please check here.
