Alejandro Berón and Kelly Lettieri are visiting from Buenos Aires for the first time in Vienna!
They have a combined experience of over 20 years. Performing and teaching in 5 continents, more than 20 countries and over 75 cities, judging in tango events and festivals, and choreographing.
Alejandro and Kelly have podiumed individually and together in various competitions and, in addition to dancing, they are in the process of bringing together their musical careers, singing in venues in Argentina and Europe.
Most importantly, (because being a good dancer and a good teacher don't always come together), they have a great talent to translate the complexities of tango dancing into simple terms, and to gauge their teachings to the students' needs and experience.
We've prepared a juicy program for you to enjoy and enhance your dance with intensive workshops, private lessons, milongas and show!
Here's TODAY'S PROGRAM:
14:00-15:30 Connection Intensive
Take a deep dive into increasing your harmony with each partner you dance with by finding balance together, creating clear signals, and learning to communicate using the movement of the free leg.
16:00-17:30 Harmonizing your Giros
The Giro (Spanish for turn) offers a space of unlimited potential for every tango dancer.
We can use it to express our connection, illustrate our favourite moments in the music, and even get out of a tight spot on the dance floor.
Like the walk, our journey into the giro never ends! We can always explore it and express it more deeply.
In this workshop, Alejandro and Kelly will guide you with exercises and tips that will refine the giros you already do*, and provide you with structures that will give you greater creative freedom and connection when it's time to improvise.
Those in the proposers role will increase their creative and improvisational capabilities inside of the giro, and those in the interpreters role will increase their ability to take on a proactive role when a giro is proposed.
18:00-19:30 Synchronized adornos for couples
Adornos (Spanish for embellishments, adornments) can be a great resource to add attractiveness to your dance. Or a source of noise and disconnection between dance partners if how and when you do them is detrimental to what you're doing together.
Alejandro and Kelly share their secrets on adornos that actually enhance your dance, for both roles and synchronized!
21:00-02:00 Alejandro is DJing at Milonga Central!
We join Sylvia and Bernd's milonga in the first district to dance the best tandas by Alejandro Berón as guest DJ! (Bäckerstraße 16, 1010)
All workshops take place at Haydngasse 1, 1060.
You're welcome to attend with or without a dance partner and to register to the workshops of your choice.
