With Stefan & Komala

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.
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.

Friday November 24th @ El Corte, Nijmegen

Paradas & pasadas: the art of pausing

Paradas are a gentle way to tell your partner to stop moving for a moment by building up a little barrier. The continuation of the dance is often started with a movement passing the barrier – hence “pasada”.

A pause can be such a wonderful moment during a dance – it adds another dimension to the continuous flow of movements by standing still for a few seconds and then rebuild the flow. It also connects us stronger to the music where pauses are a vital element to colour the song. We look into the possibilities how to express pauses in the music with paradas. After that we dive into the wide range of pasadas which make the re-initiation of the dance so exciting.

And we will certainly not forget to check out when it is useful to dance paradas and when not 😉

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.
