Workshops Details:

W1: Walking on the wild side
How to use the upper body to create different qualities on the walking: playing with high, middle and low intention to adjust your steps according to different styles of the music.

W2 Where is my axis
How to improve the couple technique and the quality of the communication between the two dancers. On the menu: boleo, colgada and giro with enrosque … in reduced space (crowded milonga)!.

W3 Exploring Valse
Using a simple walking-turning sequence to see how we can put emphasis on different beats of the music in the valse.

W4 Milonga
Rhythmical foot work and some basic keys to enjoy dancing milonga!

Technique T1
Axis, posture, balance, free leg and base leg, presence and adornos in walking
Make sure your posture is correct before any movement is engaged. Learn to recognize when you are in balance and how you can improve your dance with correct posture.
Walking with different intentions depending on what is proposed by the music. Play with your feet and dance with the free leg. Toe or heal first ? Make an artistic choice.

Technique T2
- Dissociation, ochos, giros, presence and adornos in circular movements.
- ENROSQUE: Discover your torso and how it can be used effectively to generate powerful giros.
