This is the first in a series of ‘Mastering tango’ workshops . Each workshop can be taken independently.
Some people who dance Argentine tango believe that the tango walk is a bit boring and that tango is all about figures and ‘moves’. Not so! Creating musicality using rebote, change of weight, and contra tiempo, is part of the fun of the dance.
This is a one and a half hour workshop introducing elements of rhythmic walking, and also looking at different orchestras where these walking styles may be suitable.
It is for improvers to intermediate level, and is ideal for couples wishing to expand their technique and musicality for this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.
It takes two to tango, so this workshop will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. If you don’t have a partner, please visit my Facebook Page, find this event and post a comment to see if anyone is looking for a partner too.
The workshop will cover as much of the following as time allows
- Basic Parallel walk and embrace review (Caminata)
- Multi-track walking in Parallel Step using Dissociation
- Changing from Parrallel to Cross Step while walking (Caminata con Cambio)
- The Walk with Musical decorations(Caminata con Adorno)
- The Pause with Musical decorations (Pausa con Adorno)
- Walking with different Rhythms
- Double Timing and Contra Tiempo
By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing a Argentine Tango, using rhythmic walking, to a traditional tango tune.
