Description

With much excitement, Rick's Tango Club presents Sebastian Jimenez and Maria Ines Bogado to DC, for a week of workshops, private lessons, and performance!

Since they won the world tango championship in the category of tango de pista (social dancing) in 2010, they have been one of the most sought-after couples in the world of tango. After the sold-out workshops in DC last year, they are coming to DC this year, with a more comprehensive workshop curriculum and with a more dazzling and enchanting performance.

Save the dates, grab this opportunity to meet and learn from them and experience their tango!

Details are below. Registration will be open soon.

~* Workshop Topics *~

In choosing this year's class topics, the main focus was giro. With this focus, Sebastian and Ines' core technique is introduced on Friday, followed by one day of intensive training on giro on Saturday, and then by one day of intensive training on vals on Sunday. The goal is fluid, dynamic, and elegant dancing with a lot of turns.

Sebastian and Ines were Buenos Aires champions in the category of vals before winning the Mundial in 2010. Their vals is very dynamic with a lot of intricacy and playfulness.

I believe that this line-up of core technique - giro intensive - vals intensive will contribute to improving the quality of dance by the incorporation of fluid, dynamic, and elegant circular movements.

Friday: Core technique and social dancing
Workshop 1. Core technique: Embrace and marca (all level)
Workshop 2. Closed sequences for social dancing (all level)

Saturday: Giro intensive
Workshop 3. Giro: Technique for balance and embrace (intermediate/advanced)
Workshop 4. Enrosque made simple: How to start enrosques, for man and woman (intermediate)

Sunday: Vals intensive
Workshop 6. How to work with vals tempo (all level)

Workshop 8. Barridas in vals (intermediate/advanced)
