Workshops @ Tanzatelier Widance – 17.11.2018

Workshops @ Tanzatelier widance 17.11.2018

Mit Stefan & Komala

Das freie Spiel der Linien
Ein Seminar von 16:00 – 19:00 Uhr

An sich ist Tango eine sehr simple Angelegenheit: zwei Körper bewegen zusammen auf einer Linie im Zusammenspiel mit der Musik und anderen Paaren im Raum.

Diese Linie kann vielfältige Formen haben: von gerade über krumm bis völlig aufgezwirbelt. Interessant wird es wenn die zwei Körper unterschiedlichen Linien folgen und sich die Linien der beiden Körper kreuzen. Dadurch entsteht nicht nur das Kreuz in der Base sondern es öffnet sich ein ganzes Universum an Möglichkeiten. Diese Möglichkeiten beinhalten gekreuzte Schritte für beide Tanzpartner auf einer geraden oder auch einer gekrümmten Linie. Das alles klingt sehr abstrakt ist aber in der Praxis sehr spannend und unterhaltsam und bietet Raum für neue Ideen und Bewegungen die aus dem alten Bewegungsmuster ausbrechen.

Unser Workshop wird sich über die gesamten drei Stunden mit diesem Universum beschäftigen 🙂

Workshops @ Tanzatelier Widance – 09.06.2018

Workshops @ Tanzatelier widance 09.06.2018

With Stefan & Komala

Staccato & legato: musical terms brought to life with cortados & paradas
A seminar from 15:00 – 18:00 o’clock
Staccato is an essential rhythmical element of the Tango Argentino. The short strong notes provide a swinging and lively character to the music and stimulate the dancers to keep moving. besides simple but rhythmically diverse shifts of weight it is above all the Ocho cortado which is suited to express the staccato feeling in the dance. Albeit being a very common movement the Ocho cortado due to his complexity still is a challenge which – executed correctly – can provide quite some surprises.
Legato on the other hand facilitates the dancers with a lot of calmness with the tied and connected character of the music. It offers them the possibility to integrate a moment of stillness into their dance paired with elegance. There is one stylistic element which is especially suited to honour those precious moments of stillness in the music: Paradas – little pauses in the dance introduced with a gentle stop. The continuation after those quiet moments is initiated with Pasadas – the occasion for followers to render their dance in a personal way and give it a special expression.

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.
