One event... a culture inmersion

During the development of our dancing, we had to deeply dive in many layers and aspects of tango...

Unfortunately, all this different aspects were never condensed on a single teacher or a couple.
So we were receiving inputs on these layer, little by little and from different sources, and it was completely up to us to link  and make sense of them and their relationship with each other.

This process was many times so frustrating (so much contradictory information) and it made the learning so much harder longer than... nowadays, we prefer to incorporate all these layers on our workshops, bringing a more holistic approach to tango and shortening the learning process.

What are we focusing on this time?

We will have a focus point for the morning sessions and a focus point for the afternoon sessions.
Each focus point is the main practice/training layer to later analyze the interaction with the rest of the layers creating the holistic approach.

From previous voting after the first NYA Meeting, the layers "Technique" and "Musicality" were the winners... but they will not be the only ones!!

There is a crazy idea building up!! :)

Mind blowing full tango immersion !!
:)

As we shared already, balancing the different tango layers is a very important part of our workshops and events planning!
Therefore, this time we have the crazy idea to immerse you in a full round experience.

Workshops

The morning sessions will focus on the technique layer, while also slightly touching expression and connection! Special way but such a booster on the learning curve!

The afternoon session... musicality!
Not the common musical tempo, doble tempo... we will do crazy interesting stuff!! Working with rhythmic  melodies and melodic melodies, executing all sorts of different musical bridges, composing with our bodies second melodies that build atmospheres, working with the singers, jumping then to the rhythmic base... all sorts of creative ways to use the music.

+ Challenge room

A 24hr training room for you to practice and explore when ever you want! but... but... but... also, there will be around 8 different games and challenges to well... challenge you!
You can train alone, and with a partner! These games are connected to fundamental tango elements.
We noticed that some  "out of tango" exercises, can teach us very useful tools and much faster than a traditional "tango class"!
So the playroom is open for you!

+ Cinema

And also! to complement with the "Tango knowledge" layer, there will be a cinema room, with some short documentals about old milongueros, orchestras, conductors, dancers and local Argentine festivals.
Something worth to see if you would like an extra "salt and pepper" in your culture experience during this week!

+ Pond of fun!

Oh one last thing! Not so tango related but it is important to say! bring your bathing suit!
