During MilonGato 2019 we offer you several tango workshops from Victoria Rybalchenko and Den Shevchenko and a lecture on history of tango from Andres Vilks.
Teachers of Milagro del Tango school
Victoria Rybalchenko
and Denis Shevchenko
Victoria Rybalchenko and Denis Shevchenko are the heads of the biggest tango school in Kharkiv– Milagro del Tango. Bright and charismatic personalities, they, first of all, see tango as a dialogue. Thus, their method is based not on memorizing figures, but learning biomechanics of movements that allows achieving freedom in dance and a deeper emotional contact inside a couple. As good teachers, Victoria and Den are permanently working on improving their skills, attend festivals and workshops of the best European and Argentinian maestros.
Victoria and Den will give three workshops:
12:00 – 13:30:
"I'm not a slowpoke, I'm just slowing down" Part 1
We'll learn how to slow down harmonically and musically. The topic has two parts. During the first one we'll review the technical aspects needed for slowing movement. The second will be dedicated to musicality (we highly recommend to take both workshops together. If you're planning to take one, it should be the first one)
14:00 – 15:30:
"I'm not a slowpoke, I'm just slowing down" Part 2
Attending the first workshop is required for this part.
13:00 – 14:30:
Milonga. "Simple, but spicy"
Some sequences for playing with music in milonga.
