The seminar topic
"Tango – the co-creation of an embrace + à la carte "

What is the essence of tango and how one dances tango? How does the tango differ from other dances? At first glance, it seems to be the music. However, there are people who also dance tango steps to other music styles. Tango has some unique elements which distinguishes it from other dances, for example: „el cruce“, the „mulinete“ of the woman, the endless possibilities to create something new and amongst many other things, the opportunity to change often the dance partner. Furthermore, we never repeat the same routine (or only if our memory deceives us), repetition creates always a new routine. The embrace, which can be close or open, needs a constant connection to the partner. It is, as a matter of fact, an embrace, which intertwines two bodies into one without the loss of autonomy and by using a certain body language. We can call the feeling of creating together this embrace „freedom“. Yet, this feeling needs a profound knowledge of the body and movement. In addition, it needs the ability to adapt to the changement of the dance partner. In this seminar, we are going to explore the basic elements of tango: the „caminata”, the „cruce”, the technique of „giros“, the connection of the dance couple, and the musicality to improvise these elements while dancing. This time, we give you the opportunity to choose themes à la carte. One month before the seminar, the participants can propose elements and figures which they want to learn or write about their difficulties and insecurities. We will consider these wishes in our preparation. In the seminar, we are going to deepen the improvisation of tango. Every day, one hour will be dedicated to body work in order to prepare the body for its task.
