Inspiration Tango

Tango is not just a dance, also a wonderful art over the floor. Each sequence is a great design that you make with your feet, like a paint  between two person. Therefore, it requires good lessons with experienced teachers to help you to master the technic, a lot of motivation and above all practice!

We have developed a course program for Tango, Vals, Milonga and folklore Argentino that focuses on technical, musical and stylistic content. This year, we also introduced two new concepts to develops your learnings in this weekend: Cafe Tango & Practica Guiada.

Cafe Tango: To the traditional German coffee and cake, we add an open dance floor with playlist of Tango to practice your steps or just to enjoy and socialize. A free time to your measure of practice and rhythm.

Practica Guiada: The Practica Guiada takes place at the end of the weekend and is a three-hour practice period. It is called "Guiada" (guided) because content that we have developed in the workshops is repeated and the teacher can be asked questions again. In this way, we want to support your learning process more effectively. 

On Friday you can enjoy the traditional milonga of "Cafe Basico” and meet the kind local tango-dancers. On Saturday followed by the Birthday's Milonga with Emilia & Benjamin's Show and our beloved international DJ"El Jaak" (Belgium) with amazing selection to inspirited us.
"El Jaak" played at the famous Tango Emotion Festival in Italy. He has been a regular DJ at the Antwerper Tango Festival for years and leads the popular Halfdiep Milonga in Belgium.

 

Looking forward to see you!
Emilia, Benjamin and Team.

Workshop (W)

01 Vals: “Sacadas in the rhythm of the waltz”. Three styles: linear, circular and false sacada.

02 Tango Technique: “Variación ochos y ganchos”  The variation is a fast musical part that occurs in almost all tangos. Dancers must execute the steps with agility and sense of rhythm.

 

03 Tango: “ Dance figures in a confined space.”Dance figures, where it is possible to maintain the orientation of the upper body even with little space and be able to guide and follow effectively.

 

04 Folklore Argentino: “Chacarera y Zamba”. Two cheerful and romantic Argentine folk dances. They are fast to learn, strengthen the connection in the couple, the rhythm and the body coordination. Learning these dances has positive effects on learning tango.

 

05 Milonga: “Cadencia en la milonga”. Milonga steps and the difference between a fast tango and milonga dancing.

Emilia Andrada & Benjamin Galian

Emilia and Benjamin, from the north of Argentina, are known for their communicative & friendly teaching style. They have already been able to inspire students in different countries around the world with their tango pedagogy. In addition to tango, they are also trained in other dance styles such as Folklore Argentino, ballet and modern dance.

“Benjamin and Emilia are trained dancers whit very deep solid knowledge of the mechanics of the body. They have an amazing clinical eye to diagnose the weak spots in somebody’s dance, know what they ultimately stem from, how to correct them, how to get the particular student to understand and adopt the chance” -
