Bootcamp Tango | Milonga-proof Colgadas
This bootcamp will be all about the out of axis movement called colgada. It is a movement where you both hang into the outside of the embrace to create beautiful dynamic movements that otherwise are impossible. We will start the lesson with creating a good posture and balance as these are the fundaments of making movements out of axis, followed by exercises to get used to the feeling of “hanging” within the embrace. In the second part of the bootcamp you will learn simple and more complex combinations, which allow you to use the colgada in a fluent motion without taking too much space in the milonga.

Bootcamp Tango | Posture, connection & sliding the embrace
The Argentine Tango starts with walking. If you can walk you can dance Tango:-). Besides the walk there is also the embrace, the connection between you and your partner and the posture of great importance to dance in a nice and relaxed way. We believe that Tango is a dance of leader and follower together! So 50/50. Of course, each role has its own interpretation.
During this bootcamp we’ll work on the posture, connection and the flexibility in the embrace. We start with tips and tricks on posture (use back/upper body/hips/legs/feet), connection, energy, axes, timing, take and receive space for leader and follower.
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.
