LADIES ONLY! @ Tangoskolen and NOT ONLY Ladies 😉
Friday 1st March – 3rd March 2019

We are happy to welcome Melina & Ramona back to Oslo and Tangoskolen for yet another Ladies ONLY! weekend. This time also with a workshop NOT only for ladies 😉

We arrange a small milonga and the Friday and will go together to Lunatico on Saturday, a milonga arranged by some of Oslo’s other organizers. The milonga on the Friday, Milonga Minimal, offers only a small room, with good flooring, great music and water to drink. Bring a cushion if you intend to sit, and your own drink if you wish 🙂

«Technique & Bodywork for leaders and followers» Friday 1st March 6.30pm-8.30pm
Before dancing with a partner, we would like to prepare ourselves. In this class, we‘ll focus on relaxation and tension, our own axis, different concepts of walking, dissociation and pivoting. A perfect stand-alone class or start into a weekend of classes. No partner required. And yes, men are invited to join!

«The active dancer» Sunday 3rd March 12noon-5pm
This class will address the role of both partners in the creation of a fully improvised dance inspired by music. On one hand, we will learn to understand tango as a language using words and a grammar to communicate in an improvised manner. On the other hand, we will explore the possibilities of how the so-called follower can be active within the framework of what the leader suggests, with the intention of retaining the harmony of the couple. This is a class for ladies, who have not visited our first „Ladies Only“ seminar in 2016 and want to dance actively rather than just follow. Ladies from Ladies ONLY! in 2016 and 2017 are also welcome 🙂

«Calm and determined» Sunday 2nd September 12noon-5pm
We want you to be at peace with your technique in order to find stability and balance in whatever you do. This workshop will offer intensive work on balance and the dosage of energy in steps – the pre-requisite to expressive dancing. The second important topic will be the adaptation to different partners and different styles of leading without compromising your priorities and the comfort of the embrace. A class for advanced ladies and those who have taken our previous classes.

Please bring for WORKSHOP B + C:
– Waterbottle + Packed lunch (we have one hour lunch break)
– Comfortable clothing
– Thick socks
– Your usual tango shoes + flat shoes
– Yoga / exercise mat
– Blanket (if desired)
