Want to know what your next steps should be as a dancer? Want to know how the tango sound is made by the musicians? A musicality workshop may be all you need to explain the mystery behind the music.
For dancers, it is eye-opening to watch musicians break down different layers of music to reveal what your body has always known but doubted. For musicians, it is jaw-dropping to watch a tango musician how simple techniques can be adapted to create that unique tango sound. It’s communication and connection between dancers and musicians at its most fundamental.
There is a dancer and a musician hidden within all of us. Winnie inspires you to let out both.
Sample topics for your next musicality workshop (All Levels; No Partners Needed):
1, Get to know how to listen for básic musical building blocks in our tangos like phrases / melodies, responses / fills, different modes of tango rhythmic accompaniment, section endings and beginnings, and how to apply that knowledge to your dance
2, Get to know musically your Big 4 Golden Era Tango Orchestras: Di Sarli, Troilo, D’Arienzo and Pugliese, and how to apply that knowledge to your dance
3, Dive into the concept of Tension & Release in tango both music and dance: How this concept is the heart of the beauty of tango for many. How Tension & Release is created in the music, and how we instinctively dance it in every song. How tango is built on the concept of contrast, in terms of color, texture and sentiments. How this 2.5 minutes of tango encapsulates life, in all its tensions and releases. This is the Winnie’s Signature Class (works great if this is the second class after one of the above classes).
