With workshops during Saturday & Sunday afternoon!!!

Saturday, 18/11/2017
16:00 – 19:00 Playing with the axis

The connection in the couple is the most important communication element and essentiell for any improvisation. Most of the times this connection turns around the common axis in a dynamic balance but sometimes this axis is released which creates a new balance with a lot of possibilities. In the 3 hours we address the build-up of the connection und work on possibilities on the basis of movement examples varying from very easy to quite complex.

Sunday 19/11/2017
15:00 – 18:00 Rebotes: dynamics made easy

Regularity and stability are a good basis. The icing on the cake however is diversity – not in the sense of as many figures as possible but in the meaning of as much different executions of one and the same movement as possible. This creates a dynamic which keeps every single dance exciting and refreshing. Rebotes – elastic movements based on the principle of rebound – are due to their dynamic character extremely suitable to enhance your dance with an extra dimension.

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.


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 – 17.06.2017

Workshops @ Tanzatelier widance 17.06.2017

With Stefan & Komala

An afternoon with 2 intensive workshops and a break long enough to practice a little bit.
Stefan & Komala stand in for love to detail, connection & musicality.
Saturday, 17/06/2017
15:30 – 17:00 Entradas: sacadas of a different kind
The theme of the first workshop is entradas – a softer version of sacadas where the leader tries to influence the movement of the follower as little as possible and instead takes the place that the follower leaves. This way very organic movements are created which can applied in both simple steps and complex turns.
17:30 – 19:00 Simple but good: changes of weight as a style element
The second workshop is completely dedicated to a simple but very effective concept of movement: the change of weight. This concept permits us not only to switch from the parallel to the cross system but also offers acces to surprising elements in our dance – both rhythmical and technical. As a result our dance gains depth and diversity with very simple methods.

Workshops @ Tanzatelier Widance – 18-19.11.2016

Workshops @ Tanzatelier widance 18./19.11.2016

With Stefan & Komala

With workshops during Saturday & Sunday afternoon!!!

Saturday 18/11/2016 16.00-19.00 o’clock Ochos: variety & expression
Sunday 19/11/2016 15.00-18.00 o’clock Dynamics 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.
