Armin Vio Workshops 2012

postitleswirl

Armin will teach two workshops on how to set your dance free, work with intensities, and be playful!

13 and 20 May
1-3 pm
Heffron Hall
34-40 Burton Street at Palmer in Darlinghurst

Workshop 1: The Embrace… What is the embrace for? How do we make the embrace light? How do we use the embrace to set the dance free? How do we maintain connection while changing the embrace? Often in close embrace we have the feeling of being in a frame – how do we open the frame so we don’t dance to embrace but embrace to dance? This workshop will give you a new understanding and a new feeling of the beauty of the embrace and its potential.

Workshop 2: The Economy of Intensities… How do we make our dance exciting? What do we do when we are bored of our steps? How can followers give impulses to the dance to change the feeling? How can we enrich our dance with emotions? Sometimes we have the feeling that we are stuck in our patterns. This workshop will explore possibilities to break out and provide tools to experience your tango anew in every dance.

Workshops are $40 per person. Tango Synergy members pay $35.

Questions please contact Armin at 0424 897 723 or Vio at 0478 397 203.

Armin Kyros was trained by Sebastian Tkocz and Chantal Imboden and works as a teacher in their school, ART.13 TANGO BERLIN. He has studied with Gaia Pisauro and Leandro Furlan, Gustavo Colmenarejo, Julian Elizaro, Guggi Zuzakova, and  Eugenia Parilla and Yanick Wyler. Armin practices TaiChi and Yoga and studies Spiral Dynamics.

What does improvisation mean?
Is it possible to improvise Argentine Tango? How?
A sequence in dancing is beautiful. Until it becomes a fixed habit.
Each sequence carries its key to variation.
These workshops will help leaders and followers see and feel many forms of improvisation, not only in the steps, but in how we express them.

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.
