The Seminar

While traveling...

We are constantly traveling to teach around the globe. It’s an amazing experience to be bringing tango to such a huge variety of communities that are spread on every continent. We are still amazed to see that the “abrazo language” is practiced by all kind of dancers and that people from any place of the world can “talk” that language with any other person from the opposite side of the globe. It’s amazing and yes, we love what we do!

Many times we wish we had more time to share our ideas with the students and very often we feel we cannot go deeper into each subject as we would like because of  the way workshops are generally organized.

This is the reason why we conceived this intensive seminar. We want to create our ideal « teaching-learning situation », that is to have one same group of students for a fair amount of hours working in some key aspects of the tango as an improvisation dance.

About the level

This seminar is suitable for advanced dancers, semi professional or professional couples who practice tango very frequently since a considerable amount of years.

Note that the seminar won’t be about pedagogy, but dance.

Registration in couple

To participate in this seminar you must have a partner. If you don’t you can take a look in the Help Group where single dancers will post their partner request.

Note that during the seminar there won’t be too many couple rotations. So each couple will work on their own pace/level.

Seminar language

The seminar will be conducted in English and French

The seminar program

We are very happy with our first experience of the seminar from last year as we had the feedback from the participants saying it was very inspiring and it really helped them to move forward in their dance path. And we can also see these results on them! 

This is our best reward as teachers and it encourages us to do it again. What we like about having several day is that we can approach the tango dance in a integral way, going through different aspects of it. As those who have already worked with us may know: we like to explore the «body in motion» as a whole unity in which everything is interrelated: its not JUST about technique, or JUST about expression, or JUST about patterns or music etc… because in the end, when it comes to “dance”, all of these aspects go together. So this year we will still work in these various aspects of tango going through different exercises and examples. The main pillars of the work will be technique, connection, music, elements and qualities of mouvement.

NEW in 2018!!

To enrich the learning experience we decided to add a shot of private classes for all the participants at the beginning of the week. So as part of seminar each couple will recieve one hour of private teaching. These classes will be tought in one room with two student couples simultaneously with the presence of Pablo and Sofia so each couple will recieve feedback from both (30 minutes with Pablo and 30 minutes with Sofia).
Also we decided to enlarge the amount of hours of the seminar, that will now be of 16 hours of classes plus a 2 hour welcome practica what will make the seminar last 6 days!
Summarising the 2018 edition includes:
16hs Group Classes
1h Private Class with Pablo & Sofia
2hs Welcome Practica
TOTAL= 19h Traning program
