Tango workshops with Belen Silva Sunday 18 March 2012

Belen Silva, the experienced tango dancer and teacher from Argentina, will be back in Newcastle this Sunday 18 February 2012 to conduct 2 workshops.

General scope

One workshop will explore a particular element from the point of view of the person who leads. The idea is that everyone will learn what the lead is, how it is done, which elements take part, how space is used, etc. The aim is that the person who ‘receives’ the lead learn about it through the person who leads.

The second workshop will explore a different element from the follower’s viewpoint, where the person who ‘receives’ the lead takes more prominence. We will work on variations in the response, how to adapt the movement to different bodies, etc.

Specific details are as follows:

  • Workshop 1: 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm -“Volcadas milongueras” (emphasis on the role of the leader)
  • Workshop 2: 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm “Voleos o castigadas: both led and as adornments” (role of the follower)

Venue: Cardiff Senior Citizens Hall, cnr Myall Rd. and Harrison St., Cardiff.

Cost: $25 per person for one workshop, $40 per person for both.
