Tango Argentino: Musicality Workshop 29.6.2024

Zum Text auf Deutsch

“Tango is improvised. It is improvised all the way. There are no combinations. In tango, you can’t be preoccupied with steps. You need to express your feelings while listening to the music.”

– Miguel Zotto

“The first step in musicality is to be open”

Horacio Godoy

Tango is music, not logic, not steps. To dance tango well, you must listen to the music, you must immerse yourself in the music, feel its rhythms and melodies, become one with the music.

In this workshop we will explore a diverse range of music, get a feeling what’s special with it and start expressing it without the pressure to perform figures or moves. Our aim is to cultivate a deep empathy for the music and to recognize opportunities for interpretations and improvisation in the music.

Tango Argentino: Fluid Role Change Workshop 20.4.21024

The essence of Argentine Tango lies in communication. The Fluid Open Role approach does not assign fixed roles to dancers, instead allowing and requiring both partners to initiate Tango moves and interpret the music.

The workshop will commence with fundamental techniques for communicating balance and movements in Tango. It is suitable for beginners unfamiliar with Tango, as well as experienced dancers seeking to learn the ‘opposite’ role, and anyone wishing to refine their Tango communication skills (even if not specifically interested in open role dancing).

Participants will explore the significance of maintaining a stable axis, mastering body control and tension, conveying clear intentions, employing simple communication techniques, and fostering empathy. These skills will be applicable not only to Tango but also to various aspects of life. We will delve into methods for honing and enhancing these skills through Tango practice.

Moving beyond basic Tango communication, the workshop will be examining how selected more intricate Tango movements can be communicated, aborted, played with and resumed. Participants will come to appreciate that every Tango movement is reversible and endlessly malleable. The focus will be on playfully exploring impulses and reactions, fostering creativity, and improvising in harmony with each other and the music.

Improvisation, passion, and musicality will take center stage in the exercises. Every communication encompasses imperfections, misunderstandings, and miscommunications – we will learn to embrace and enjoy these, to create a fun and enriching experience for everyone.

No partner is required as participants will rotate partners throughout the workshop. The session will be conducted in close embrace.
