About

Liebe Tangueras y Tangueros, liebe Tango-Interessierte,

bereits zum 7. Mal bieten wir unser spezielles Sommerprogramm mittlerweile an. Vom 8. Juli bis 29. September gibt es an 3 bis 4 Abenden in der Woche wieder die Möglichkeit, ‘drop in classes‘ für alle Niveaus bei international renommierten/ lokalen Lehrer*innen zu unterschiedlichen Themen zu besuchen.

Aktuelle Schüler*innen von uns können wie jedes Jahr an allen drop in classes gratis teilnehmen**. Gäste sind ebenfalls herzlich willkommen und zahlen 15 € pro Kurseinheit direkt bei der Kursleitung. Anmelden braucht ihr euch nicht. Ihr könnt spontan vorbei kommen.

** HINWEIS: Dies können wir ausnahmslos leider nur für Schüler*innen mit einem AKTUELL LAUFENDEN VERTRAG anbieten!

Wir haben auch in diesem Jahr wieder ein pralles Programm zusammengestellt. Haltet euch über diese Seite weiterhin up to date über etwaige kurzfristige Änderungen des Programms, die wir uns vorbehalten.

Eigentlich vor einigen Jahren für uns als Urlaubsvertretungsplan gedacht, wurde das SommerSpezial, auch aufgrund unserer guten internationalen Vernetzung und den mittlerweile fast 4 Jahrzehnten, die wir Tango in Hamburg leben, vor allem durch eure begeisternde und begeisterte Teilnahme schnell zu einem schönen Tango highlight.

Es ist eine wunderbare Gelegenheit sich über mehrere Wochen ganz intensiv mit dem Tango zu beschäftigen, vielleicht mal die andere Rolle zu lernen, Kontakte zu knüpfen, oder ganz Anfänger*in eine vielfälige, tolle Unterstützung bei dem Einstieg in den Tango zu nutzen.

Solltet ihr noch keinen Kurs bei uns belegen, oder nach einer evtl. auch längeren kreativen Pause wieder mal Tango hören, sehen, spüren wollen, oder euch auf basics besinnen möchtet, ist das Sommerprogramm ein richtig guter Moment dazu. Nicht zuletzt auch, weil ihr die Gelegenheit habt, euch für den üblichen Monatsbeitrag von 60 € die ganze Woche intensiv mit Tango zu beschäftigen und das fast 3 Monate lang.

Viel TANZVergnügen!

Herzlich,
Ute & Marga

“The women, in simple dresses, curved across the space together, with a calm focus that was immediately engaging. Flirting with the soft vibrancy of the tango form, the dancers experimented with the letting go of the necessity for a strong leader and follower”
Erin Johnson in https://bachtrack.com [‘Dis/tr-action’ review, 2013]

“Pegorer can be commended for subverting genre expectations by neutralising typical tango tropes”
Donald Hutera in Resolution! Festival [‘Approximation’ review, 2013]

These classes focus on relating: to gravity, to one’s own body and that of others. They deal with negotiation of spaces and attending to whatever it is that is happening at that moment, prompting quick improvisational responses. These classes take the tango embrace & figures and fill them up with the delightful challenges of standing and the pleasurable engaging of the senses. In these states, how can we initiate a movement dialogue that allows for considerate mutual interactions and unexpected exchanges? Some tango figures and technique will be taught but in general, we will work on refining the quality of what you already know (this will depend largely on the level of the class and participant’s skills and desires).

These classes require standing and walking positions alone or with a partner. The guided explorations require giving and receiving gentle touch: if you are not sure about this please ask us (in general, a safe space will be established at the beginning).

These propositions come from my own 20 years of curious explorations, influenced by diverse techniques and dance forms including Tango Argentino, Contact Improvisation, Japanese Butoh, Skinner Releasing Technique, Ideokinesis, Pilates, Fascial Fitness, Core Awareness and Anatomy Trains.

The workshops in the week-end follow the themes of some of the classes during the week although the exercises may vary. The intention is to offer some clues prior to committing to a long workshop. Prepare to be challenged sensorially rather than via a sequence of complex steps. The focus is on quality of sensing and being, connecting to oneself, to the other, to the music and the whole room.

Being your dance somatic problems and we will find and answer together! Becoming aware to repetitive patterns and breaking them up with variations will open up many possibilities in your dancing. I work with various methods and approaches to achieve this, and the best way forward will be discussed with the client. Expect to work on the mat as well as standing, sitting or dancing.

Programm 04.-16. September

Double rotation

Ideal for an expressive upper body and de rigueur pelvis-torso tango disassociation! These guided explorations will help you create a sense of circular, folding flow in the spine, as well as in the hips and shoulders. You will be offered some anatomical references to understand the beautiful natural spiralling intentions inherent in the body and then we will move into rotating Tango action!

Do the basic to the highest standard

I heard this being said during the Finals at Wimbledon in the match between Federer and Djokovic: when time gets tough, the commentator said, “Do the basic to the higher standard”. This could be translated as “keeping it simple” but with a little special extra. Let’s find out together.

‘Balancing Acts’ – the art of standing in relation to a partner. 

We will play with different intentions as we learn to perceive, offer and receive microscopic shifts of weight – how can this art of synchronized balancing inform the partnership of leading and following at all times?

Alle Niveaus

20.00-21.30

‘Partnering momentum’ – the art of sharing a dynamic axis

 

We will work on connecting arms and legs to our own centre to then share this centre with a partner in dynamic, creative and precise way. Choosing to alternatively tune in to either our own or the shared axis can playfully transform our dance (particularly relevant for double tempo figures such as those involving sacadas).

PLEASE NOTE: ‘Partnering Momentum’ requires some quick footwork / changes of rhythm. If unsure please take ‘Balancing Acts’ first.

Join us for any of those two classes to get a taster of the Sunday ‘Balancing Momentum’ workshop.

‘balancing momentum’

In this workshop we will revisit and expand on the topics introduced during the classes ‘Balancing Acts’ and ‘Partnering Momentum’.

We will be sensing the relation of opposites and the spaces in between. For example, what is between towards and the away, giving and receiving, upper and lower, inward and outward, bones and muscles, vertical and… apilado, vertical and … colgada!

This workshop will allow you to establish a clear connection with your own axis, another person’s axis and the axis that you share.

Highly recommended if you are interested in an dynamic embrace!

… to show off at the Milonga evening!

Join us for a fun, informative and most of all, super relaxing afternoon after last nite Milonga! All levels welcome!

Please bring your own mat and a scarf. If weather is cold please bring a blanket or something to keep you warm.

Part 1
14.00-16.00

‘Constructive Rest’

‘The Constructive Rest is a dynamic, unique way to restore, replenish and realign your body-mind. This approach fine tunes the neuromuscular system resulting in improved coordination and range of movement, better balance and posture, ease of breath. It was developed by Mabel Todd in the early 1900’s and later by Dr. Lulu Sweigard and Irene Dowd and is widely known as the Ideokinesis Technique. It is also commonly used by the Alexander Technique professionals to treat actors, musicians, athletes and dancers. I was fortunate enough to study with the fabulous Glenna Batson, who trained with Irene Dowd. My hope is that you will continue with the practice of the Constructive Rest and share it with your friends! In addition to a mat, please also bring a scarf (cotton or wool, 1,5/2 metres) and a light blanket. In this class you will work both with a partner and on your own. Open level. This class requires laying on your back for at least 10-15 minutes at the time. 

Part2
16.30-18.00

 ‘Pilates for Tango dancers: rotation’

Please bring your own mat and a scarf. If weather is cold please bring a blanket or something to keep you warm.

We will gently work on a few selected exercises targeting tango major hot spot: hips, shoulders and lower back! Ideal for improving ochos and sacadas, voleos, enrosques and a simple beautiful embrace. Ideally you will then continue to work with those exercise in your own time in the future!

You will develop and improve:

*disassociation of upper and lower body * coordination * sequential spinal movements * toning & lengthening * awareness of movement *

In this class you will work on your own. Open level.

Recommendation: for best results please take the Constructive Rest class beforehand, particularly if you have any long term injuries.

‘Wrists and Ankles’

Those joints do a lot of work every day and also when we dance. We will briefly look at their anatomical structure to allow us to understand how we ‘land’ (step) and how we ‘grasp’ (embrace). This is particularly relevant for effective leading and following embrace but also for delightful sweeps and a beautiful, sophisticated walk.

‘One heart with four legs 2’: sharing the core

In this class we will connect our core to our own feet and also, to the feet of our partner!! Particularly relevant for sweeps, colgadas and decoration by either leader or follower. Balancing on 4,3,2 feet in turns can be a joyful -and useful- game for improving improvisation skills.

One heart with four legs ... and four arms!'alancing momentum'


EXTRA Workshop 

14.00-17.30 inkl. Pause

Invest 35 €

Tango is often said to be a dance where two hearts merge into one and four legs find interesting ways of walking around each other playfully! We will find inspiration

from the embryological development of the heart with its folding, spiralling and twisting brilliance:

“one of the things that happens in development is that the heart tube in the embryo coils up and knot itself up into four chambers”

(Michael Shea, embryologist)

We will work on exploring the intrinsic dynamic qualities of the heart and place them in relation to our walking in partnership.

We will attune to our own body and that of our partner, sensing weight and space/s, negotiate release and resistance, share impulses and momentum, provide-remove-offer contact and support, develop a sense of rooting and floating, play with leading and following roles and anything in between and beyond.

So 15. September

With 26 bones, 33 joints and well over 100 muscles, our feet are incredibly sophisticated in their function.

During these classes you will be offered some simple yet effective tools to get to know and look after your feet. Guaranteed to put wings on your feet!

A brief introduction to the anatomical structure of the foot and lower leg will then lead you to some explorations performed whilst sitting and/or standing with the use of a small ball (provided). We will soften and expand the articulations and tissues in the foot with emphasis on the ball of the foot, the toes, the ankle and the Achilles tendon.

You can exercise barefoot or in socks/tights.

These classes are excellent if you wish to neutralize the effects of wearing high heels as well as the effects of standing/sitting/dancing for many hours a day.

OPEN TO ALL

PLEASE NOTE: Sports people (especially runners, dancers, yoga practitioners) and people with various feet problems find that this work deliciously help to ease the pain and give them a greater sense of stability.

‘Undoing Removing’

Let’s face it, some things are just not useful. And what is not needed can be identified, isolated and gently removed. Freed your dance!

Ab fortgeschrittene Anfänger*innen

20.00-21.30

Disobedience: what happens when followers don’t follow and leaders don’t lead?

We have all been there: we lead something and the follower does something else. Or we are led something but for whatever reason, we end up doing something rather different. This moments are full of potential to create something unique: let’s try to figure this out together and let’s do elegant, playful mistakes on purpose!
