Friday February 15th @ El Corte, Nijmegen

Imploding turns

Turns are most of the times expanding movements that require quite some space. Imploding turns on the other hand are a way to initiate a turn towards the center of the leader which do not demand a lot of space but create plenty of dynamics to play with.

This makes them an ideal instrument for crowded salons.

Come & join us!

Time
20:00 ’til 22:00 o’clock

Price
€ 22,- p.p. for the workshop

Location
El Corte, Graafseweg 108, 6512 CH Nijmegen

The Berlin Connection: The Horn of Plenty – 15-17.03.2019

With Daniela & Raimund || Stefan & Marian

The Berlin Connection: The Horn of Plenty

Welcome at the weekend seminar“The Horn of Plenty”

Approach every dance as if you prepare a meal.
Choose fresh ingredients from the abundance Tango has to offer, spice it up with delicious herbs and enjoy 🙂

The rich taste palate of Tango

Tango music offers us a universe of atmospheres, tastes and textures. Every orchestra has its own texture and every tango touches a certain feeling. As dancers we are constantly working to translate into our dance what the music tells us. Dancers are transformers, they mediate between music and dance. In fact, dancers share the music experience with their dance partner and dance their story together in dialogue with the music. The question is how to find a way in this complex constellation and how to give the creative processes that go along with it as much space as possible. In the plentiful world of Tango music, we are not quickly running out of taste.

Imagine a tango as a beautiful dish. All your senses are addressed, you taste, you smell, you feel. The dish is prepared in a certain way with the necessary ingredients which gives it that specific taste and texture, and it is further enriched with sublime herbs. The entire cooking process leads to a result that we can then experience and enjoy. Parallels can be found in the music and how we dance to it.

This seminar is completely set up to unveil the richness and complexity in Tango music and dance. It is often said that we have to make it exciting, for ourselves and for our partner. But how? For two days we work on the taste of Tango, the aromas that rise from the kitchen of Tango, the musical herbs and the oh so necessary basic ingredients for a tasty dance. Dance as if you were preparing a delicious dish.

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.

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 🙂

Intensiv-Workshop @ Esquina del Tango – 05.09.2018

Workshop @ Esquina del Tango 05.09.2018

With Stefan & Marian

“Spiralbewegungen in der engen Umarmung”
A seminar 19:00 – 21:00 o’clock

Spiral movements are an essential part of Tango Argentino.

It starts in our own body where torsion plays an important role in ochos & giros and of course continues in the interaction between the partners who continuously move around a common axis. In this seminar we look first how spiral movements work in the own body and how you can use them to be able to move with complete freedom in close embrace.

Next we will study the possibilities how we can apply those insights to revive our turns in close embrace and give them another spin.

Here you can find more information about Esquina del Tango in Erfurt.

“Dynamik in Drehungen” @ tango mio halle e.V. – 06.09.2018

Worskhop Halle 06-09-2018

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 “Dynamik in Drehungen”.

20:00 – 21:15 Workshop “Dynamik in Drehungen” with Stefan & Marian
21:15 – ? StudiLonga with TJ Stefan Wimmer
