Bootcamp Tango | Posture & Closed Embrace
The title says it all! A bootcamp for all levels where we will work on finding the right posture to dance comfortably in close embrace. We will touch on various topics within the posture and close embrace such as differences between axis and posture, sliding the embrace in close embrace and creating, giving and taking space. How do you create a good embrace together (both open and close!). On what moments/in what figures and how to open and close your embrace comfortable.
We believe that Tango is a dance of leader and follower together! So 50/50. Of course, each role has its own interpretation.
Max. 9 couples per bootcamp!
Teachers: Lorena & Jory
Price: € 29,50 p.p.
Time: 12.15 – 14.30 hr

Bootcamp Tango | Giros with Lapiz & Sacadas
Although that in both figures the turn is called a giro, we need to use a different technique for leading and following them. During this bootcamp we will explain the difference between a giro with lapiz and a giro with sacadas for leader and follower. We will work on the technique of both figures so that both leader and follower feel more comfortable doing them in the milonga!
Max.9 couples per bootcamp!
Teachers: Lorena & Jory
Price: € 29,50 p.p.
Time: 14.45 – 17.00 hr

Bootcamp Vals | Playing with dynamics
Within the tango music, the vals is considered to be the most fluent style. When trying to make our dance as fluent as possible, it is difficult to stay with this fluency instead of making it plain. During this bootcamp we will work on keeping the fluency (for leader & follower, it takes 2!) with the help of increases and decreases of energy, accents and heights so that your dance becomes fluent AND dynamic!
Max.9 couples per bootcamp!
Teachers: Lorena & Jory
Price: € 29,50 p.p.
Time: 12.15 – 14.45 hr
Location: Nivon, Dirk Smitsstraat 76, Rotterdam

Bootcamp Milonga | Moving seperately together
What is this you might think?! 99% of all the workshops are about moving at the same time, but one of the most fun parts of the dance is the ability to take turns and to be able to lead and/or follow this! During this bootcamp we will work on the technique for doing such steps and practice this with multiple simple figures on milonga music for in the milonga.
Max.9 couples per bootcamp!
Teachers: Lorena & Jory
Price: € 29,50 p.p.
Time: 14.45 – 17.00 hr

Bootcamp Music knowledge | For dancers & starting DJs
At last! After many requests the first bootcamp purely about the music of the Argentine Tango. During this bootcamp we will be talking about the different orchestras that you hear in the milonga, how to recognize them, how to adjust your dance to their music and how to categorize them. Not only will we talk about the music from the dancer’s perspective, but also from the perspective of a dj, think about general knowledge and a bit of in-depth tanda building, how the orchestras play their role during a milonga, where to find music and much more!
This bootcamp does not require a partner as we will not be dancing too much and we will all be working individually on the general knowledge of tango music.
Max 8-10 persons per Bootcamp!
Very intensive, but the result is there.
