The Five Hour Milonga Seminar
You don’t need complex moves to dance a good Milonga – a unique dynamic, and your understanding of the music is the game changer! In this seminar, we will explore the walk of Milonga, and then the rhythmical variations of that walk, the physiological contact of the couple in traspiés, their embrace, and then co-combine these elements into fun Milonga movements for the Social Milonga that you can use at any milonga, anywhere in the world. Let us spice up your dance!
Part 1 – Friday Evening Feb. 23rd, starting at 6:30 pm until 9:00 pm at Dance Union (16 Bow St., Somerville, MA)
Part 2 – Saturday Evening Feb. 24rd, starting at 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm at Dance Union (16 Bow St., Somerville, MA)
The Sunday Advanced Milonga Seminar
Crazy Crosses for Milonga (2.5 hrs)
The simple Milonga does not encourage us to dance complex cross-versions, but simple diagonal moves. We will examine the foundation and play with crosses in all directions, even, some of them in combination with Traspiés
This seminar is recommended for advanced dancers only and/or those who have taken the 5-hour seminar on the two previous days.
Sunday Afternoon Feb. 25rd, starting at 3:30 pm until 6:00 pm at Dance Union.
