Workshops in Gainesville, FL on Saturday October 3rd, 2009
with Victoria & Federico
Musicality and Essential Basics: Theory and practice.
This workshop will focus on the basics of tango musicality focusing on ‘musical cues’ on how to move with the rhythm and melody. Federico and Victoria will center the attention on the art of ‘creative’ walking and dancing to the music, reminiscent of drawing music with your feet and always embracing the music. Understanding tango musicality is what makes a good dancer, a GREAT one!
This is a course for all levels of tango dancers.
Time: 1 pm to 2:30 pm
Molinete and its variations – including sacadas and barridas-
This workshop will focus on the possibilities of the molinete including elements of improvisation allowing the dancers to create their own figures in the line of dance. This workshop is great for beginners but also recommended for more advanced dancers who feel locked into dancing only set patterns and would like to dance more creatively.
This workshop will be a multilevel workshop; however it is required to know the basic concept of molinete (grapevine).
Time: 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm
Dissociation: Voleos and Ganchos
This workshop will focus on the dissociation technique and the complexities of dissociation through contra body movements, maintaining frame and axis. Voleos and Ganchos will be the focal point of this workshop using the right posture of the body, the right lead, and the correct placement of the lady’s leg.
This workshop will be for the intermediate or advanced tango dancer.
Time: 4:30 pm to 6 pm
The workshops are 90 minutes each. We recommend bringing high heels and lower heels for the ladies and comfortable clothing.
