Practica 7.October 2017

postitleswirl

Vio, Roberto, and Crew TangoForge invite you to a Real Practica. It means it’s a place to practice Argentine Tango and to meet new Compañeros. On the walls, we will post technique reminders and notes from recent classes and help you with problems. On our lane trainer,, we will do some improvisation drills designed to break habits and find new possibilities.

 

 

Before the practica, we will teach a short class so new students can see how we teach and learn why we think biomechanics is so wonderful.

15:00-18:00: Practica
14:00-15:00.Biomechanics Class: Changes of Embrace

Practica is €5
Class is €10
Class+Practica is €13 (only with exact coins!)

You can invite friends to this event.

Studio students please note this Practica replaces the usual Friday night Practica on 6.Oktober.

 

Address: Torstraße 179, klingeln Starr. 4 étage.

I want you to know that you are not alone…

embrace orig crop

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?

Books

Power is the courage, confidence, and competence to make things happen. I want to create in a way that’s incomparable and define my own compensation package. You too?

Syntax of Power is a raw, potent, and spare revelation of how I got to where I am and how I take on the struggle every day.

This book is not about tango, it’s about everything else.

It’s about stepping into the darkness of change, learning how to take care of yourself, and making things happen.

Dyv stands for Duro y Vio. We were inspired by a 2007 conference at Harvard University about tango as a transnational culture. Also we wanted to create something that would help people to imagine a queerer tango. We forbid ourselves to use the word ‘passion’ and instead tried to articulate the experience more precisely.

Argentine Tango is more than an elaborate and difficult dance, it is an international culture of intimacy, desire, and dignity. No mere romance or memoir, the intricately woven stories evoke tango’s true mysteries … the elation, the frustration, the compulsion…

We published the book in 2009. Dancers asked “how did you know what I was feeling?”

Silences in history. Silences by code. Silences of fear. You already know that Tango’s silences can be sublime and they can be devastating.

What I do in my blog is use myself as a lens – sometimes a microscope, sometimes a telescope. I try to be as honest with myself and you as words concede. Then I try to find a deeper meaning and imagine a pathway for us.

A blog post can be a fragment, a wisp of inspiration, an outline for thinking. A book must complete and reconcile it all. Now I drag the social scientist to the scene to enumerate the facts of the case, the mystery which brought both stardom and tragedy to my life.
