Tango Wednesdays at OWL Bakery.

Tango Wednesdays at OWL Bakery.

Begin your Argentine Tango Journey.

We are offering an ongoing 6-week fundamentals series that focuses on body awareness, technique, and communication with your partner– a different (and we think the best) way to learn a dance that is unlike any other.

Our next series is

7:00 – 8:30 pm Fundamental movement, technique and tango.

8:30 – 10:30 pm Milonga, free to all students. $5 at the door.

Location: Owl Bakery, 295 Haywood rd., Asheville, NC

Class: $50 per person  

Milonga: $5 at the door.

In our fundamentals tango classes, we explore and practice basic tango movement technique and concepts.

The Truth About Boleos, March 8th

The Truth About Boleos, March 8th

A Boleos Workshop and a Victorian-themed Milonga!

For this year’s workshop before the Victorian Ball, we decided to explore so many dancers’ favorite theme: Boleos!  But this is from our perspective– so class will be filled with lots of juicy body movement explorations, partner connection exercises, and straightforward understandings of just how these things actually work (when they work well).  We hope you will join us!

~ Eric and Susannah Gebhart

Saturday, March 8th

1:00 – 2:30 PM      The Truth About Boleos I: Finding and Using our “Edge” in a spiral

3:00 – 4:30 PM      The Truth About Boleos II: Crafting boleos for the music– the communication & the expression.   

9:00 PM – 1:00 AM “Victorian Ball” Milonga

CLASSES

The Truth About Boleos I: Finding and Using our “Edge” in a spiral.  1:00-2:30 PM

Through exploring and applying the dynamics of our internal spiral, we will learn how to find the space where balance, extension, and release intersect, giving rise to the potential of the boleo. Followers and leaders alike will find and play with the “edge” from which the boleo arises. Intermediate.

The Truth About Boleos II: Crafting Boleos for the music– the Communication & the Expression.  3:00-4:30 PM

This class will expand on the concepts explored in the first class, to explore a range of expression in boleos. Using principles of the dynamic “edge”, we will examine the technique needed to communicate the quality of a boleo to our partner (both for leaders and followers). In the music, we will explore big & swoopy boleos, tight & quick boleos, and low and high boleos.

This session will focus on the social elements of tango through music– we’ll listen and dance to the rich music of golden age tango, becoming aware of the possibilities for expression/communication in the dance, as well as come to an understanding of how, through the music, one does not only dance with just one partner, but with every other dancer on the floor. We will also learn about the quirky elements in tango, such as the cabeceo!
