You are invited to join an intensive weekend with Vio and Crew TangoForge.

Currently based in Berlin, TangoForge is known for a commitment to precise and distilled technique and to improvising with every movement from the history of tango.
They love close embrace, and they are fascinated with how tango can be used to express the world heritage of music – including dubstep and Chopin!

TangoForge seeks a liberated tango which gets beyond hungry women and masterful men to discover deep creativity through the profound roles of this dance.

The weekend includes biomechanics classes and improvisation classes. Every student will have a 30-minute private lesson.

Saturday Improvisation Theme: A world of expression in every step:
Control systems for the transfer of weight, dynamic expression, and elasticity

Sunday Improvisation Theme: Flying the free leg:
Adornos (marked and unmarked), Linear, Circular, and Butterfly Voleos

The price includes 10 h ws and 30 min private lesson and food for three days.
120€-220€ depending on the number of participants. The more people less paying.

Housing is possible close by at Carin Munthers, Ulla Werkström and Anders Noréns houses. Then a cost of 15-30€ will be added.

Registration is required in advance.
There is NO partner required.

Contact jessicafoerster@hotmail.com or fb Jessica Förster.

 

Ni är välkomna att ta del av en intensiv helg med Vio och crew TangoForge från Berlin. Utmärkande för gruppen är deras finslipade och precisa teknik och att improvisera med rörelser från hela tangons historia.
De älskar den nära omfamningen och är fascinerade av hur tango kan användas för att uttrycka olika danser såsom dubstep och Chopin.

Tangoforge strävar efter en befriad tango som sträcker sig bortom de stereotypa rollerna och inspirerar till en djupare kreativitet. Denna helg inkluderar biomechanics-klasser och improvisationsklasser och varje deltagare får 30 minuters privatlektion.

Pris för ws+privatlektion och mat i tre dagar: 1200kr-2100kr
beroende på hur många deltagare, ju fler vi blir desto billigare.

Vi kommer att turas om att ordna lunch och middagar i matlag för att få ner kostnaderna.

Övernattningsmöjligheter finns hemma hos Carin Munther och Ulla Werkström som bor nära lokalen. Då tillkommer det kostnad för boende. Priserna varierar från 150kr-300/ natt inkl frukost.

På lördagkvällen beger vi oss till Halmstad och dansar på tango Imago.

Anmälan sker till Jessica Förster via Messenger eller via mail jessicafoerster@hotmail.com.
Alla nivåer välkomnas och inga krav på partner krävs.

 

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?

Important Insights

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.
