Lektionsbeskrivningar

How to become a PRO in one hour and a half  (all levels)
Being on your feet is not the same as standing properly. The difference between the quality of movement that is achieved when standing up correctly is what makes the difference between a professional tango dancer and an amateur one. This difference lies mainly in the use of the feet. We generally assume that we are using our feet in our movements, but dancing tango requires everything they have to give, and that is why it is important to understand what it really means to use them.

Just by observing the way a professional dancer stands, one can observe the aesthetic difference between them and a beginner. But this aesthetic difference is based on a very important functional difference, and the aesthetic is only the indicator that allows us to recognize this difference from the outside. We are going to experience how our dance changes radically from only this simple idea.

Connection (all levels)
We are going to start the weekend with what I believe to be the most important concept in tango: connection. First we are going to go over my way of understanding lineal connection, which I believe depends on the work of the feet and a special responsibility on the follower role.

Then, to work on circular connection, we are going to work with the concept of "amplitude". We often try to make ourselves small to “fit” into the embrace, and my approach is the opposite, is about occupying space.

This concepts works for both open and close embrace.

Focal points and pivots (all levels)
To understand pivots and focal points, we will work with an analogy about the embrace and a parabolic antenna. A parabolic antenna collects all of the information that it receives in its plate and focus it on one single point. In the same way, we can focus all of our energy both leading and following into one single point that summarizes the information that we want to share.

For the follower, that point is fix, and it’s placed in the chest area. But for the leader it can slide within the embrace, along the chest and arms. By sliding the focal point, the leader will be able to lead pivots in the follower, thus creating new possible directions. Also, we are going to understand the vital importance of the feet in this process.

To dance as a bandoneón (intermediate)
To dance as a bandoneón means to be able to be an instrument of musical expression while dancing. Expressiveness is a key aspect for both musicians and dancers, and there are technical aspects to that expressiveness that are present in both. For example, muscle tone needs to change if you are playing/dancing D’arienzo, than if you are playing/dancing Di Sarli. If you are going to dance D’arienzo, better do it with the attitude that he has on this video and that he transmits to the musicians.

Also, a bandoneón contracts and expands on itself, just like the dancer can do with his body. We are going to explore this possibilities to add quality to our dance and improve the connection.

Giros/turns (intermediate)
To be able to perform a good giro, first you must feel the circular energy inside your own body. We’ll think the spine as a spiral that generates this circular energy first inwards, to then express it outwards. This is important for both leader and follower.

Then we’ll go over other many important things to consider in order to make a healthy giro, like what to do with your feet, where to get the energy from, how to keep the connection going, and more.

Milonga (intermediate)
To dance milonga (as a musical genre) is all about being efficient with one's energy.

We are going to work on better ways to channel our energy and we’ll also discover different ways of stepping. This will allow us to have different energies in our dance and increase our efficiency.

Also, to be able to dance milonga, we need to understand its unique personality. In order to get into the flow of milonga, we need to enter into a special predisposition of our energy and emotions!

I didn't know sacadas were so easy (advanced)
Learning trough play is the best way of learning anything. When you play, you explore your own body and take out what already exists in yourself, instead of trying to impose an outside structure.

This is the path we are taking to make you realize that sacadas are very easy and that you can come up with plenty new different ways of making them, once you understand the main concept.

We are going to work with an exercise that will clean many "outside variables" in order for you to understand the basic core of sacadas, which are actually pretty easy! and it will also make you much more creative with them.
