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.

Workshops @ Tanzatelier Widance – 18-19.11.2017

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
