“Music is the Guidance I Follow ~
As an autodidact TangoDancer, not a single TangoLesson in my life , I watched for years how people did their learned steps on different DanceFloors, wondering how I would interpret the TangoMusic in general. For me it was impossible to Dance on most of the traditional TangoMusic because of it generally spoken boring tunes.
The idea to Dance Tango was not my gig until I decided and got invited to figure out how I would move on Music which I like and combine it with the Tango Atmosphere.
The Music is essential for me in order to Move, and I don’t have to forget about rules which I learned, because I didn’t learn any.
A bit of an advantage maybe to Improvise on what I hear and translate that into Movement.
When you translate Music & Sound into Movement, the symbiotic ~if you take your time to emphasise~ creates a borderless platform for your Improvising Capacity.
And as you will engage with a DancePartner, its your responsibility to judge the Follow as possible. It doesn’t make sense to create weirdo Moves which your partner doesn’t understand. The Beauty will get lost as well as the Connection.
Essentially within the line of translating Music there are no limits, no rules, just Space to Fill In.
So this Workshop is not a Traditional workshop where you learn different Moves or Steps.
It will be an Area where you can practice a New Style of Leading and Following, away from conditional steps, guided a bit by Us.”
