Tandem Tango Marathon

25 – 27 October 2013 (Riga, Latvia)

We are waiting tango dancers for an autumn tango marathon in Riga to embrace our friends, dance on gold leaves and get to know new people. Together we will make a tango fest during the last weekend of October.

TANDEM TANGO MARATHON is:

Tango fest for friends, friends of friends, and we will be happy if friends of your friends will tell our news forward to their tango communities, because to make fest together much more enliven. Our moto is: EMBARCE FOR ALL. That means – no matter what kind of embrace or style of tango you prefer, when you respect your colleagues on dance floor and tango music – you are welcome!

Tango fest of music and for DJs, because one DJ – this is good, but two DJs always better twice! Of course, not everybody will accept that kind of experiment – more difficult, impossible to use prepared play lists and you have to be VERY concentrated on the mood of milonga, BUT twice more drive and all time absolutely unexpected decisions are guaranteed, In other words, tandem of DJs it is jazz by DJs, duet to get a harmony for excellent atmosphere! During night for your attention will play music men DJs tandems, don’t miss them! And, on day milongas for you will “sing” duets of DJ-girls!

And for dancers – we like if you are sitting not only for pleasure, but also for education. Our marathon will start on Friday with lessons of tango music history by Massimo Politelli (Italy). Massimo many times presented his lessons and very happy this time to listen him in Riga.

The huge dance hall allow not thinking about limits for participants, but anyway we would be appreciated to have your pre-registration to check the gender balance, as well as calculate quantity of night hot soup and give the correct number of participants for a bar (for snacks and drinks). Registration starts on July, 15 by email: info@tangomarathon.lv

Organizer of the marathon – Argentine tango school (www.hitango.lv) in cooperation with dance studio DanceStar (www.dancestar.lv)

Workshops & Milonga with Luca Lamberti

7 – 8 June 2013 (Riga, Latvia)

7.-8. Jūnijā mums būs iespēja ieskatīties tango Itāļu gaumē ar slaveno DJju un tango pasniedzēju Luka Lamberti – gan milongas mūzikas virtuvē, gan dejošanas mentālajos un tehniskajos aspektos. Paredzētas nodarbības dīdžejiem, dejošanas muzikalitātei un līderu prātam un jūtām, protams, milonga ar lielisku mūziku un vēl kāds pārsteigums.
Nodarbības būs par pieņemamām cenām, pateicoties Eiropas Komisijas Kultūras un Izglītības aģentūras atlīdzībai!
Visā pasaulē pazīstams Itāļu tango vīriešu smalkums, skaistums un īsts džentelmeniskums tango un arī ārpus tā. Ne velti Itālijā tango dejo katrā ciematā, labākie tango komponisti ir Itāļu izcelsmes, ar iedzimtu muzikalitāti un labu gaumi! Nu mums būs, ko baudīt!

7-8 июня у нас будет возможность приобщиться к итальянскому танго – вместе с известнейшим DJ и преподавателем Лукой Ламберти – заглянуть на настоящую DJ-скую кухню, узнать об эмоциональных и технических аспектах танца в лучшем итальянском стиле. Мы запланировали урок для DJев, урок по музыкальности танца, урок «чувства и разум лидеров», разумеется, милонгу с прекрасной музыкой и, возможно, какой-нибудь сюрприз.
Цены занятий доступные – благодаря гранту Европейской Комиссии по культуре и образованию.
Весь танго мир знает, что итальянцы – самые элегантные и лучшие танцоры и джентельмены на танцполе и за его пределами. Недаром в Италии танго танцуют тысячи людей, практически в каждом городке, лучшие композиторы танго – итальянского происхождения, все это благодаря особой музыкальности и чувству прекрасного, свойственным этому народу. Предвкушаем море удовольствия!

On June 7th-8th we have the opportunity to look into Italian taste tango with famous DJ and tango teacher Luca Lamberti – into milonga music cuisine and into mental and technical aspects of Italian style dancing. The event plan includes a class for DJs, lessons for dancing musicality and leader’s embrace, mind and heart, then – of course – a milonga with super-music and also some surprise.
The lessons’ prices will be affordable thanks to European Commission Culture&Education agency sponsorship.
The whole world recognizes Italian tango men as the finest and most beautiful leaders, and real gentlemen in tango and afield! In Italy people dance tango in every village, the best tango composers always have Italian roots – all thanks to innate musicality and passion for beauty. Well, we are going to have something to enjoy!

Nodarbību nedēļas nogale ar Ruben un Sabrina Veliz

26 – 28 Aprīlis (Rīga & Ķekava)
Sadarbībā ar HiCentru, kas laipni piedāvā savas telpas nodarbībām piektdien 26. Aprīlī
www.sabrinayruben.com.ar

8 Nodarbības (katra 90 minūtes)
Mēs piedāvāsim divu dažādu veidu nodarbības: pirmās četras nodarbības būs vērstas uz pamatu tehniku ko katram labam tango dejotājam ir būtiski sev atgādināt – nav svarīgi vai dejo augstā līmenī vai kā iesācējs, tie ir vissvarīgākie: “pamati”. Nodarbības var ņemt kopā kā vienu komplektu, vai arī izvēlēties atsevišķas:

Pamati: augstam, vidējam un progresējušu iesācēju (ne pilnīgu iesācēju) līmeņiem:

  1. Pamati individuālai tehnikai (kā pārvaldīt ķermeņa svaru, asi un kā sasniegt pareizu stāju dejošanas brīdim, šādā veidā atvieglojot kustību izpildīšanu)
  2. Disociācija, tehnika un pielietošana pamat-kustībās kā ocho un pus-griezienā
  3. Komunikācija pārī, jo kustības plūdenums iegūst no uzlabotas informācijas apmaiņas (vadības) un apskāviena ērtuma
  4. Iet labi! Lineāri un apļveida gājieni (treks), tehnika un kombinācijas
  5. Bez tam būs 4 dažādas tematiskas nodarbības 2 līmeņiem – vidēja un augsta līmeņa dejotājiem (lūdzam ievērot līmeņa prasību)

  6. Milonga lisa un ievads traspie (Vidējam līmenim)
  7. Sacadas un barridas (Vidējam līmenim)
  8. Giros, tehnika un kombinācijas (Augstam līmenim)
  9. Valsis, kombinācijas un muzikalitāte (Augstam līmenim)
