August Workshops for Leaders and Followers

TangoMalta is organising two workshops aimed at playful interpretation elements in tango. The workshops will focus primarily on the use of the offbeat, for both leaders and followers.
  • Due to the nature of the different roles, the plan is to hold one two-session workshop aimed at leaders, and one two-session workshop aimed at followers.
  • The workshop is open to anyone who has already taken, or is taking the Principiantes course (formerly known as Beginners II).
  • The workshops must be taken in couples. Most of the work will be in the couple as you have registered. So, make sure you find someone reliable!
  • Due to the nature of the workshops' content, only leaders will pay for the leaders' workshop, while only followers' will pay for the followers' workshop.
  • You are not obliged to take both workshops as the same couple. However, since both workshops focus on the same musical element - the off-beat - participation in both will ensure you absorb more from the sessions.
  • A milonga will be held at the end of the first workshop, and a practica at the end of the second. Entrance fee is 3 euros for each event - but free for paying participants of the workshop.

Playing with the Music: Playful Elements in Tango
A Two Session Workshop for Leaders
It takes three to tango - a leader, a follower, and the music. This workshop will focus the playful use of the music elements in tango walking - using pauses and off-beats to turn a walk into a passionate dance. Leaders participating in the workshop are requested to bring along a willing follower, your dance shoes and a pair of ears. We will provide the rest. Although the workshop will focus on the leaders, there is much that can be absorbed by the followers participating.

When: Friday 14th August 20:00-21:30 and Saturday 15th August 19:00-20:30
Where: University Common Room
Price: 15 euros for the leader. Free for the accompanying follower.
For whom: Anyone who has taken or is taking the Principiantes/Beginners II course.
How to apply: Leaders interested in taking the course are to find a willing (and reliable) follower and contact us with your intention to take the workshop.
Milonga: The Milonga de Santa Maria will be held at the University Common Room after the workshop. Entrance is free for leaders taking the workshop. 3 euros per person for the rest of the world.


Playing with the music - Adorni on the offbeat
A Two Session Workshop for Followers
This workshop will be focusing on what followers can do within the offbeat to adorn their dance. The first session will focus on the technique required and followers will work on their own. The second session will put the techniques gained into actual practice, and therefore you will need a leader to support you.

When: Friday 21st August 20.00-21.30: Tecnica class - Adorni on the offbeat. (exercising alone, no leaders needed) and Saturday 22nd 19.00-20.30 - Adorni on the offbeat during the dance (Willing leaders needed to support you).
Where: University Common Room
Price: 15 euros for the ladies taking the workshop for both days and the practica. Ladies taking the Friday class only 8 euros. Free for the accompanying leader.
For whom: Anyone who has taken or is taking the Principiantes/Beginners II course.
How to apply: Followers interested in taking the course are to find a willing (and reliable) leader and contact us with your intention to take the workshop. If you would like to take the Friday session only, please let us know. Please email Nathalie to register for this workshop.
Practica: The Practica will be held at the University Common Room after the workshop session on Saturday 22nd from 8.30pm to 11.00pm. Entrance is free for followers taking the workshop. 3 euros per person for the rest of the world.
