Tango intensive workshop

Screen Shot 2019-03-28 at 15.35.45.png

What is Argentine Tango?
“Tango is a non-verbal conversation on music between two humans”.
And for that the dance is uttermost suitable to join people with different languages, cultures and ages and let them interact with each other. For us, the essence of Argentine tango is to meet the other in the music.
A tango dance can look big and spectacular, it does not mean that a dance with small and simple movements is a less fine dance. In fact, if you are attentive to yourself and your partner, that simple dance can be very special.
Exactly in the Argentine Tango everything comes together. Connection, grace, movement from the inside, contact. Tango is a social dance, characterized by a constant embrace, without exaggeration or spectacular movements. ‘The couple moves in harmony, connected, which in the man is reflected in the rhythm and in the woman in the sensuality of the movements’.
In this Intensive we take people on a journey into the world of Argentine tango. In this Intensive of 5 hours, we intend to do the moves that we normally do in about 8 normal lessons, but now we can skip the ‘repetition of the week before’.

The goal is to enjoy the mutual embrace and the music, taking into account the space on the dance floor and in harmony with the other couples.

After this Intensive you could step into the regular ‘Beginners-2’ lessons with a 50%-discount for students which start at 16th April in Thuis.
Dance experience or a good physical condition are not necessary, a partner would be nice but if you come alone, we will work something out.

‼️Clothing and shoes‼️
Wear clothing in layers, we are dancing and teaching together so it really could get hot.
Especially for the ladies: Shoes with a soft sole with which you can turn easily on the spot would be great.

Teachers are Rob and Petra from www.tangowageningen.nl

Diwali

Screen Shot 2018-10-17 at 11.36.56.png

Diwali- The festival of lights

It is symbolic of the victory of good over evil linked to the ancient tales of Hindu literature. People today draw the idea from there and celebrate this joyous occasion with family and friends, distributing sweets, decorating home and more importantly with lights, in the form of Diyas, the traditional lamps. Come join us and we will tell you about all the modern interpretations of this ancient concept.

The event will be held in ISOW on 11th November from 6-9pm.

First we will tell you all about Diwali as you enjoy Indian snacks, then you will experience the rich Indian culture in the form of cultural performances. You light up diyas and play some traditional games with us after which you can dance your heart out to Indian music.

Entry is free!

Food charge- 4 for non members, 3 for members.

Jump on the Art Express and unleash your creativity 🚂

Our artists invite you to join them for a fun afternoon of sharing knowledge, ideas and curiosity about different fields of art. Here you can get a better idea of what you can expect:

Poetry performance 

By Donatella Gasparro 

Have you always loved writing verses but never dared standing in front of a crowd? The mic, who’s this stranger? Do you want to explore the performative possibilities of your texts? Come join us for this performative poetry workshop: we’ll break the ice and build up confidence in sharing our deepest poetic thoughts.

Collage art 

By Marcel Reulen 

In this workshop, we will explore the magic and possibilities of the art of paper collage under the guidance of Wageningen based urban collage artist Perishable Rush. If you have collage material, such as magazines at home, please bring them to the workshop. 

Brushless painting

By Sarah Haimes

Miss that childlike feeling of touching everything and getting your hands dirty? This workshop will take you back to those days when painting had nothing to do with technique but whimsical feelings of enjoyment and glee. We will each paint a canvas with our naked fingers, feel the cool paint on your tips and the rugged canvas beneath. You can paint whatever comes to your mind or heart as long as you are smiling through it. No artistic skills necessary just some nude fingertips and your enthusiasm! (Warning: Save your favourite clothes, do not wear them to this workshop!)


Improv Comedy
By Emma Holmes 

Need to clear out those mind cobwebs? Then improv is for you! Use your body and voice to be as silly, and therefore as funny, as humanly possible. Through games and scenes learn to be spontaneously funny with your team mates in this beginner's introduction to improv and the performing arts. No experience needed, just an ability to laugh!

Creative Writing 

By Tina Hauptfeld

Writer's workout: Writing a good story takes a lot of things - great, relatable characters, a nice plot and most of all: training. Exercises for writing different perspectives, locations, tips for overcoming writer's block, and building engaging characters await you in this workshop. Instructions will be in English, but you can write in whatever language you want. And do not worry: there will be no reading aloud of the created texts.
