Workshop 1 (Sat: 16.45 - 18.00) CREATING DECORATIONS WITHIN FIGURES FOR BOTH LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS (DAVID & KIM)
MULTIPLE LEVELS Minimum Level: Improver (at least 4-15 months regular tango) + Extra content for Intermediate & Advanced dancers. This workshop explores the where, when and how of decorations - for both the leader and the follower. Part I of the workshop will introduce a number of decoration drills - building your corporal awareness, coordination and confidence, and enhancing your musical ear. Part II will move on to tango salon figures, investigating exactly where you can add the decorations. Becoming expressive through adornments works wonders for musical interpretation, creativity and partner connection.

Workshop 2 (Sat: 18.30 - 19.45) ADDING CONTRAST: DYNAMICS AND CADENCE (DAVID & KIM) MINIMUM LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED (at least 15-36 months regular tango dancing). Ensure your dance is more than the sum total of its parts! Changing dynamics and working with cadence is an exciting and rewarding way to discover new sensations and find ever-deeper connection. David & Kim will provide simple and effective guidance which will breathe new life into your dance.

Workshop 3 (Sat: 18.30 - 19.45) VALS RHYTHM: FUNDAMENTALS, SNAKE WALK & GIROS (WARREN & IRINA)

MULTIPLE LEVELS Minimum Level: Improver (at least 4-15 months regular tango) + Extra content for Intermediate levels. No Valentines event would be complete without the romantic rhythm of Vals. In this workshop Warren & Irina introduce some intricate foolproof technique and patterns suitable for all levels. Interesting walks and exciting turns with special attention to suspension and easy musicality. Develop your confidence and dance to Tango's most flowing rhythm.

Workshop 4 (Sun: 11.30 - 12:45) GANCHOS COMBINATIONS AND CHANGING DYNAMICS (DAVID & KIM)
MINIMUM LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED (at least 15-36 months regular tango dancing) In Part I of this workshop, David & Kim will present exercises to help you free up your legs and create the whip-like dynamic of a gancho. In Part II, they will explore some beautiful gancho combinations with a fail-safe formula to ensure they're effective, comfortable and safe. This workshop will not only help you with the ganchos we study on the day, but with every gancho you ever learn.

Workshop 5 (Sun: 13.30 - 14.45) SMALL MOVEMENTS FOR A CROWDED DANCE FLOOR (DAVID & KIM) MULTIPLE LEVELS Minimum Level: Improver (at least 4-15 months regular tango) + Extra content for Intermediate & Advanced dancers. Turn a crowded dance floor into your playground. David & Kim will explore the secrets to not only managing a small dance space but relishing it! A busy dance floor needn't spoil your dance experience. We'll give you steps, guidance and plenty of inspiration to transform it into a source of creativity for your tango.

Workshop 6 (Sun: 15.00 - 16.15) OUT OF AXIS MOVEMENTS FOR TANGO SALON (DAVID & KIM) MINIMUM LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE & ADVANCED (at least 15-36 months regular tango dancing) In this workshop, David & Kim will wade deep into the technique of out-of-axis movements. Part I will introduce exercises to explore our body alignment when out of axis, and how this applies when we work with a partner. Part II will focus on out-of-axis sequences for the dance floor. When combined with Part I, these sequences will feel practical and comfortable, taking the "white knuckles" out of out-of-axis ... and bringing back the fun!

Please note: Workshop 2 & Workshop 3 run at same time (in different halls)
