Every Monday is a special day and this Monday will certainly not be an exception!
Tango, among many other things, is a living folklore – from Argentina, of neighbourhoods, of generations, of individuals with unique & shared ideas in relation to the music and the culture.
We will continue our tango journey with Franz Alvaro Bravo maestro of Tango de Salon, more specifically of Tango Estilo Villa Urquiza ('Villa Urquiza style’). The term has been used to identify the traditional style from the tango-scented neighbourhood of the same name, in the 40s and 50s — often characterised by (1) elegant, smooth and precise walks (2) use of both closed and open embrace in perfect connection (3) movements that sensitively reflect the phrasing of the music (4) code of good manners on the dance floors. A significant part of the music we listen & dance to, today, is from the same era in which this style emerged and flourished.
Let us explore the contemporary creativity of the Golden Age together, starting with the basics that take us far: OCHO dynamics and variations. After an hour of study, we will swirl into a Dance-Hard Practica with DJ Mario Garufa at 19:00!
17.30-18.00 (Nytt för 2023) Portarna öppnar redan 17:30 för lugnare ankomst, ombyte & uppvärmning inför workshoppar som börjar 18:00 som vanligt! 18.00-19.00 WS med Alvaro 19.00-20.50 Praktika med DJ Mario Garufa (Obs! Cumparsita spelas kl.20:45)
