August is no holiday for TangoForge, and the marathon of teaching, performing, and partying at Europe’s special neotango events started in July. We joined ToulouseNeoTango for their fabulous first event in Amsterdam. Then at TangoForge Sverige IV in Halland we launched 3 new workshop themes: Real Music, Bad Surfaces, and Action Heros. On 17 August, we began 10 days of dancing and teaching at the spectacular NeoTangoRave Bremen XII, going directly from the dance floor there to our classroom in Berlin. The Seminar took place in beautiful rooms at the Ballsaal, Tangoloft, and the Tangoloft Lotus Loft with 27 students from 12 countries. In addition to dancing afternoons and evenings at the Contemporary Tango Festival in the Berlin Hauptbahnhof, we had our own Altertango Experiment Stations with 10 musicians participating during the week.
