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.
20:00 – … PastaMilonga

Werk aan de Winkel 2017

An irregular series of extra long workshops with Stefan & Marian

Werk aan de Winkel 2017
These workshops are built around one specific subject which will be treated in depth. The participants get an insight into the basic structure of the subject and have the time to explore the possibilities how to play with it. The workshops are organized in different places in The Netherlands.

Saturday July 15th @ De Danswerkplaats, Amersfoort

Back to the future: sacadas & ganchos in close embrace

The close embrace was for a while not very highly regarded and considered old-fashioned. But nowadays times have changed and dancing in close embrace is again en vogue in the salons all over the world.

In this edition of “Werk aan de Winkel” we investigate how to create comfortable & free movements in this intimate embrace. That’s what a dancer is thriving for eventually. Naturally we end up with round movements around our axis which enable us to develop more complex figures as sacadas and ganchos effortless. We build up the workshop carefully around the basic elements and the body awareness necessary to achieve these complex movements. A quest for all dancers according to their own possibilities.

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!
