Tango Summer School is a 4-days training program for advanced tango dancers which will take place during Open Air Tango Festival Heidelberg.
With Tango Summer School we want to create a 13-hours intensive learning experience including 12 hours of practical training (4 days à 3 hours) and an 1-hour theoretical lecture.
In Tango Summer School we will deal with the most popular topics of our monthly Intango-Seminars. Thereby we want to give tango dancers who cannot attend our monthly Intango-Seminars the chance to work with us during a longer period of time intensively. Of course, Tango Summer School is also open to tango dancers from our region.
On day 1, we will look at different sequences of tango walk and turns, musicality and variations in time (tempo) and space (direction). On day 2, we will deal with tango elements that involve a joint balance and axis of the couple, and we will practise them in both Milonguero- and Nuevo-Style. On day 3, we will continue with more elements and combinations with these elements. On day 4, we will talk about the secrets of good tango dancers in theory and practice. We will begin with a theoretical lecture on the essential qualities that a good tango dancer needs, afterwards we will work with different exercises to put them into practice.
With Tango Summer School we follow an integrated approach to tango: We look at a topic from different perspectives, i. e. musicality, technique, connection, aesthetics. We will give you plenty of material, well-founded information and concrete personal feedback – all of which is based on 30 years of tango expertise and teaching experience. With this approach we enable you to reach a long-lasting effect on the quality of your dance.
We recommend a participation in the complete program. If you cannot participate in the whole training program, it is possible to book single days as well.
