Tango: form and function in leading and following

Arrabalito | with Ilka Puschmann & Sebastian Recke (Berlin)  

11 Mar 2023Dance and movement

How do I set the right impulses when leading? How do I understand what the leader wants from me? How do I make myself perceptible to the leader as the following? How can I listen to the following? Clarity, precision and presence, in one's own steps and foot positions, in posture and embrace enable a good function in leading and following. And from this comes the beautiful and elegant form. Principles of leading and following will be studied, as well as the interplay of form and function, using step combinations that can be danced well.

For dancers with intermediate/advanced level.

Ilka Puschmann is probably one of the most experienced tango dancers in the internationally recognized Berlin tango community today. She is passionately dedicated to Tango Argentino both as a dancer and as a teacher and has been for more than 20 years. Ilka is known to many through her popular tango classes at Tanzschule Nou and Haus der Sinne. Ilka is also a qualified yoga teacher, and her students appreciate both her knowledge of bodywork and her figurative language.

Sebastian Recke has been dedicated to Tango Argentino since 1998 and has been influenced by the Argentinean Tango Grandmasters Sebastian Archaval, Sebastian Arce and El Flaco Dany. He is known as a dancer, teacher and DJ beyond the borders of Berlin. Sebastian manages to convey a quick way of learning even for complex subjects.

Ilka and Sebastian have been dancing and working together continuously as a dance couple for five years, focusing mainly on fundamental topics such as musicality, connection in a couple and the art of moving together in harmony. They incorporate all of these qualities into their dancing and teaching.
