WS2:- Combinaciones Interesantes con elementos básicos (middle-advanced level) (This WS is fully booked)

Interesting Combinations with basic elements – we will work with the three families of basic movements: walk, ‘ochos’ and turns. First with a basic, more technical view and then we will combine them to discover great possibilities of new movements.

1st Baltic Tango Show

30 March 2012 (19:00), Kekava, Latvia

Special guests: Diana del Valle & Juan Camerlingo, Argentina

For the first time a show performance of “Tango Argentino” will be produced and performed by tango dancers and musicians from Latvia and its neighboring countries. With this performance we want to introduce you to classical Argentinean tango music from its “golden age” (20ies – 40ies) and some examples of contemporary tango music, for example by the famous composer Astor Piazolla. The dancers will perform “Tango de Salon” – classical tango dance – in solo and group settings and not a theatre performance with a script. The Latvian tango quartet “Undertango” will play live music.

As special highlight we have invited Diana del Valle and Juan Camerlingo from Argentina (dianayjuan.com), a world-class couple of professional tango dancers with an exceptional aura – we are sure you will be fascinated by them!
