With Daniela & Raimund || Stefan & Marian
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?
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.
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.
