Milonga 102 on 12 July 2014, by Scott Baldwin

After a brief revision of the musicality explained in Milonga 101, we will then dive deeper into some new and interesting elements, and learn how these elements work with the milonga rhythm. The bonus, however, is that I will show how many of these elements are just stolen and adapted from tango, and can be used in Tango, Milonga or Vals. The class will be structured as a 2 hour class, followed by a 1 hour practica.

From Scott:

Back in March I had the privilege of running my Milonga 101 workshop in  Newcastle. I was amazed by the awesome support shown to me by the Newcastle tango scene, and have been wanting to come back and run my follow up workshop, Milonga 102, ever since. So it is with great pleasure I bring you Milonga 102.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all again.”

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.
