Workshops @ Tanzatelier widance 18./19.11.2016

With Stefan & Komala

With workshops during Saturday & Sunday afternoon!!!

Saturday 18/11/201616.00-19.00 o’clockOchos: variety & expression
Sunday 19/11/201615.00-18.00 o’clockDynamics and diversity with D’Arienzo & Troilo

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.

Workshops @ Tanzatelier Widance – 28./29.11.2015

Workshops @ Tanzatelier widance 28./29.11.2015

With Stefan & Komala

This time there will be workshops during Saturday & Sunday!!!

Saturday 28/11/201515.00-18.00 o’clockGet around: turns with sacadas & boleos
Sunday 29/11/201512.30-15.30 o’clockChange of direction: dynamic, musical, good

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 2 basic concepts in the Tango: turns and changes of direction.

Turns are a constant game of inviting & accepting that invitation. The art is to find the space for this interplay also in the close embrace. The focus in this workshop will be on both the basic technical elements as in change of weights, pivots and spiral movements in the body just as the timing that is essential to make those turns possible.

Changes of direction, also know as Alteraciónes, belong to the most surprising movements in the Tango. They demand from the leaders distinctness and softness at the same time and challenge the followers to admit to those unexpected changes of direction.

Both movement concepts are very suitable for the interpretation of music due to their dynamic character. 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.
