The Berlin Connection on Stromboli

The Easter Ensueños Project @ De Danswerkplaats – 14-17.04.2017

With Daniela & Raimund || Stefan & Marian

The Berlin Connection

It’s Easter weekend! We have more time to submerge into the world of Tango, start dreaming and do what we enjoy most: dancing 😏

Join us with “The Easter Ensueños Project”.

And there is more than that of course!

The four Easter days offer you a unique concept of workshops combined with lectures on tango and musicality. Even more than in the case of other social dances, the understanding of music is an important condition for an exciting and creative dance. Both parties are required to create the fascinating game together. That is why we deepen our access to music and explore the possibilities to enrich our dance.

Daniela & Marian
So you will listen to music, you will hear stories about that music and it’s protagonists and you will work on the possibilities how to express this music in your very own dance.

To give you the opportunity to work consistently and without a hurry we organize the classes on Saturday and Sunday in the form of seminars which will stretch over the whole afternoon (with breaks of course).

The Easter weekend will start though with a drop-in class on Friday.

Raimund & Stefan
And on Monday you get the chance to participate on a long audio-visual lecture about Tango Argentino given by Raimund Schlie.

Raimund is an experienced speaker who gives talks about Tango Argentino all over Europe and is well know by his ability to spice up the historical facts with nice little anecdotes. He also makes the relationships between the musicians and orchestra leader transparent which helps enormously understand what in fact was going in during the first decades of the 20th century in Buenos Aires.

But dancing makes hungry!

There are plenty of possibilities to have a dinner on Saturday & Sunday evening at one of the restaurants in the vicinity of De Danswerkplaats which all serve delicious food!

Stefan & Marian: The adventure called Music

Stefan, the TJ.

Stefan is a dancer. And he loves music. That’s why he’s TJing ..
Stefan, the TJ

Soon after he started dancing he also began TJing back in 1998. Since then he’s grown out to one of the house TJs in El Corte. He’s providing the music during the Chain Salons (together with other TJs) and at other occasions in El Corte. Besides that he’s TJing both at festivals & other events as Marathons or Encuentros all over Europe.

His main goal is to connect to the dancers and create a specific mood & atmosphere during a milonga that keeps the dancers going and offers a great diversity. Therefore he’s creating a coherent structure by using tandas (four songs per tanda, two tandas of Tangos followed by a tanda of Milongas or Vals alternately). If the location and the situation allows it he also includes cortinas.

His main ingredient form the orchestras from the Epoca de Oro but he also loves to give his music a twist by playing the lovely old & playful music from the Guardia Nueva. At some events he’s also using pieces of Neo-Tango or even Non-Tango music to interpolate with the classical Tango music.

At the end it’s all about the old saying:
“What kind of music do you like?” “Good music.”
