Komala & Stefan are well known for their love of detail and their playfulness & fun during the lessons. During this intensive workshop weekend they concentrate on diversity, musicality and expression in the Tango.
Ochos belong to the nicest movements in Tango Argentino. We investigate the different possibilities how to get to an ocho and how we can use that to achieve more expression in the dance and the music. The most exciting question of course is how to develop other forms like boleos and changes of directions out of ochos. This question will be answered as well.
Dynamics and diversity touch one of the biggest fears of leaders: “Am I too boring to dance with? I’m dancing the same thing all the time.”
We show that even the simplest movements are enough to get some depth & colour into your dance if you execute the same movement with different intensity, dynamics & musicality. During this workshop we’ll also get involved with more complex movements like giros with the focus on the music. As a musical guideline we will use titles from two of the biggest orchestras in the history of the Tango Argentino: Juan D’Arienzo and An;iacute;bal Troilo. On the basis of different musical styles we’ll demonstrate how different movement can feel as long as you completely engage with the music.
To Komala & Stefan it matters a lot that the participants develop besides the insights into the technical part a keen sense how they can bring those concepts to life by applying the movements with different intensity being inspired through the music.
Werk aan de Winkel to be continued in 2016!
An irregular series of extra long workshops with Stefan & Marian
The Tango school “El Corte” in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, under the lead of Eric Jeurissen can be seen as the crib of the European Tango and the Mother of all Tango-Marathons. Our guest-teachers Stefan Wimmer and his dance partner Marian feel and spread the spirit of this highly profound Tango which is accessible for dancers of all age and experience levels. They define themselves with a very particular, at times minimalistic and unorthodox-traditional style which in the meantime has been adopted by a lot of Milonguer@s. But they also define the Tango anew with their unique and fresh approach. We’ve got the opportunity to undergo an example of their teaching methods and their well-travelled but still open and down-to-earth Tango. Join us with our open class called “Drehen bis zum Umfallen!”.

Dansen is beweging op muziek. As simple as that. En het begint bij de voeten. Zij geven ons de verbinding met de grond en vormen het begin van elke beweging. Als wij deze contact met de aarde verliezen worden onze bewegingen minder secuur en vermindert het plezier in onze eigen dans.
Maar de voeten zijn meer dan dat. Zij zijn ook het instrument waarmee wij onze beleving van de muziek uit kunnen drukken. In eerste instantie het basis ritme volgen maar ook versieringen & eigen interpretaties toevoegen. Zij kunnen onze dans enorm verrijken en ons het gevoel geven dat wij de muziek dansen en niet de muziek ons.
