I hope you had a great weekend.
Just a short one this time :) I'm giving a tango workshop on 22nd April, next Sunday. What can you expect from it?
The basic idea is to pack a lot of learning into an afternoon, for maximum value and maximum fun, whether you're a beginner or a more experienced tango dancer.
We'll look specifically at 3 key areas of tango: pivoting, the free leg and the embrace. Starting with an (re)introduction to the basic principles, we'll move on to exploring some interesting, creative and musical applications of the basic techniques. These will include a range of leader and follower secadas and ganchos, boleos and more.
Who's it for?
The workshop will be structured for dancers with a broad range of experience. Different options for steps will be taught for different experience levels, ensuring everyone is appropriately challenged.
For the beginner tango dancer this will be a chance to start playing with ideas you'll develop more over the coming months and years, while refining the core technique you've learnt on the beginner course.
For the more experienced, improver or intermediate dancer you'll have the chance to get to grips with some fun new possibilities (and invent you're own), while improving the basic technique that makes them possible.
The workshop starts at 1pm and runs on until 5:30pm, with food and tea breaks. From 5:30-6:30pm there will then be a free practica, so you can start to use what you've learnt in your dancing straight away. The workshop will take place at the usual venue, the Povey's Dance Centre, 159 Shirley Road, Southampton.
The cost is £32 per person. (For those who have done a tango workshop with a similar format and amount of teaching to this before, you'll be used to paying closer to £45. My hope is that the lower price of this workshop will enable more people to attend. If you'd like to attend but this is still too much for you to afford, please get in touch, and I may be able to give you a discount.)
No partner required, but you're welcome to bring one.
