Susana Miller Tango Milonguero Workshops | June 19-26

susana-miller

Susana Miller is the preeminent teacher of Argentine Tango in the Milonguero Style, a term she coined to introduce tango apilado to students around the world. Milonguero Style is a synthesis of Susana’s studies over the years of the unique dancing styles of the older milongueros. She was the first person to study the anonymous and intuitive milongueros’ dance, to enjoy tango in the same way they have done for decades: dancing socially. She has a gift for deciphering their distinct vocabularies and choreographic combinations, and transmitting these to her students. In this way she has developed a rich language that condenses more than a hundred years of tango tradition. Her work as a teacher has shaped tango as we know it now, not only in Buenos Aires, but also around the world.
Her ability to focus on key concepts and communicate them with ease distinguishes her from her predecessors, since she can – with a language as technically correct as it is accessible – share the secrets of the Porteña milonga with everyone who wants to become part of it. Teacher of teachers, she has worked with most of the renowned milonguero teachers and is constantly training new generations of professional instructors. She has toured all around the world.

Workshop Particulars

Each class builds on what is learned in the previous: It is recommended to take the entire sequence per day or the whole package (while also taking advantage of the discount!)

Saturday June 21 2014

A 1:00-2:15: What is inside the tango? This is a workshop for EVERYBODY, for all levels and all styles of tango, Foundations: Balance, connection, posture, embrace.
Rhythm. The walking has all the “mantras”. We “dance on the tile”. How to AVOID feet and spine PAIN. We use feet like hands.

B 2:45-4:00: Tango – Intermediate: Steps are situations. Basics to develop impeccable navigation. We use our vulnerability, not our strength. The dialogue between our bodies is instinctive. Energy and fluidity versus strength and control. Remembering and forgetting. We change the programming: let’s dance BAD to dance GOOD. Balance in back ochos for women and men.

Bring a camera to record in the last 5 minutes (note: recording allowed only when announced)

C 4:30-5:45: Tango – Advanced
A sequence of one of the great milongueros who is no longer among us: a giro (turn) with traspie and sacada. Balance technique in turns for leader & follower. Then a mind-blowing backwards corrida! I will show it to you!

Bring a camera or phone to record in the last five minutes (note: recording only allowed when announced).

Sunday June 22 2014

D 1:00-2:15: Tango Vals – Intermediate & Advanced
Vals and Tango share the same sequences. It is the rhythmic model that creates the vals. Learn a turn that never ends! A traspie that is exceedingly “porteno”! The woman “flies” around the body of the man. The man leads but follows. The woman “listens to the body” of his partner. The result is a spontaneous act.

Bring a camera or phone to record in the last five minutes (note: recording only allowed when announced).

E 2:45-4:00: Technique for Women – All levels.
Balance, embrace, posture. The actions of the legs are from “somebody else”. How to “listen to his body”.
This class is recommended for men, too!
Bring socks as well as dance shoes.

F 4:30-5:45: Milonga – All levels. Classic Milonga Caminada for all levels. A special traspie for advanced. Gain a deeper understanding of the rhythm of the milonga.
We will also dance with alternative music.

Bring a camera or phone to record in the last five minutes (note: recording only allowed when announced).

All 6 classes……………………………….$120.00
Any 3 classes: ……………………………..$ 60.00
Individual classes…….……………………$ 25.00

Note: Susana reserves the right to change or adjust the syllabus at any point during the workshop based on the students’ skill /comfort level.
