The Berlin Connection on Stromboli

The Berlin Connection: Living colours !!! – 20-22.04.2018

With Daniela & Raimund || Stefan & Marian

The Berlin Connection: Living Colours !!!

Welcome at the weekend seminar“Living Colours !!!”

Learn as you dance.
We want you to listen differently to music and dance differently to every piece of music. Therefore we stay closely connected to the character of the milongas you attend to dance with a lot of different styles and types of music.

Four qualities: power, calm, vigour, happiness.
Four colours: red, blue, green, yellow.
Let’s mix 😏

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 weekend seminars will start with a very interactive lecture on Friday called “Orchestral playground” given by Raimund Schlie. In these two hours we will discover Tango music and its protagonists. Using videos, music, lots of information and – of course – practical exercises we will reveal the essentials of this fascinating music: who created it and how did these guys do it?

Some background.

Most of the milongas are structured in blocks of music (tandas). The DJs do their very best to weave a diverse and exciting carpet of music during the event to entice the dancers to keep dancing and inspire them with a lot of different music. The dancers on their part want to respond to that diversity by expressing the music with a different quality of movement according to the music. Our goal is to stay in the seminars as close as possible to that diverse character of the milonga.

To achieve that we are defining for four primary qualities: power, calm, vigour and light. There are of course much more qualities and facets but by isolating those basic entities we get a basic platform to work on.

Now lets assign these primary qualities with a colour: power = red, calm = blue, vigour = green and light = yellow.

The idea is to reduce every song to one of those four primary qualities. Having done that we can adjust our dance according to our quality of choice. That means that we have uncountable possibilities to vary our way of moving. That is true in the first place for our own body but it also is applicable inside the couple.

How it works.

On every seminar day we have a couple of buckets – assigned to one of the primary colours. We fill every bucket with a music (that might be a single piece or a whole tanda) and a movement. During the seminar every bucket will be used in a different way. There is no time limit which means that on some buckets will only be worked for 15 minutes whereas others take 45 minutes to be handled.

The aim is to first single out the basic quality of a song or tanda and apply it to the movement in the bucket. From there on we go to the facets, edges and overlappings of both the music and the movement which always exist.

What about food?

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!

During the seminars on Saturday & Sunday we will provide you also with delicious but not too luscious snacks & drinks.

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.

“Bitte keine Überraschungen: Richtungswechsel gut vorbereitet” @ tango mio halle e.V. – 07.09.2017

Worskhop Halle 08-09-2016

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 “Bitte keine Überraschungen: Richtungswechsel gut vorbereitet”.
