18.30 - 20 Uhr WS 1 Anfänger/Mittelstufe: Secrets of the Social Dance Floor
Join Alejandro and Kelly as they share tips, tools, and "yeites" (tricks in Lunfardo) that will get you feeling comfortable and confident when you dance in the milonga! Deep dive into building a connection with those we dance with, tapping into the links between our everyday walk and movement and the technique of tango, using simple elements to expand our creative options and finding ease in the circulation (and sometimes lack thereof) of the dance floor. This workshop is specially designed for beginners of all levels - while we love that we can always go deeper into detail in one's journey of learning tango, it doesn't mean that we have to wait to be expert level to enjoy ourselves in tango's many social events!
20.10 - 21.40 Uhr WS 2: Music & Movement Workshop I
Let's explore how we express our musicality by diving deep into three of the most popular classic tango orchestras: Canaro, Di Sarli, and D'Arienzo. From rhythm to melody, we will explore the fundamental elements of tango music and musicality when we are dancing with a partner. On the way to finding your own personal expression of how you dance when you hear these orchestras play, we will also share stories about the fascinating histories of some of tango's most famous orchestra leaders, Francisco Canaro, and Carlos Di Sarli and the impact that they have had on the tango that we dance today!

13.30 -15 Uhr WS3: Harmonizing your giros
The giro (Spanish for turn) offers a space of unlimited potential for every tango dancer, we can use it to express our connection, illustrate our favorite moments in the music and even get out of a tight spot on the dance floor. Like the walk, our journey into the giro never ends - we can always explore it and express it more deeply! In harmonizing your giros, Alejandro and Kelly will guide you with exercises and tips that will refine the giros you already do and provide you with structures that will give you greater creative freedom and connection when it is time to improvise. Those in the leader's role will increase their creative and improvisational capabilities inside of the giro, and those in the follower's role will increase their ability to take on a proactive role when a giro is proposed.
