During the festival we will offer our 12-hour intensive seminar called the “Nuevo School” with Emile Sansour and Simge. The Nuevo School consists of 4 workshops for 3 hours including a short break each day.
This time the topic will be “From Todaro to Nuevo at advanced level”. The seminar will provide you with the big picture of turns, combinations with different elements, and their implementation in different tango styles: from classical Todaro turns to Tango Nuevo to new ideas for advanced levels. Moreover, we will discuss the historical developement, style and philosophy, and past, present and future of Tango Nuevo.
The seminar will be held in German and English.
A prior registration is necessary. Registrations for the complete Nuevo School will be preferred. It is also possible to sign up for single workshops.
Emile Sansour has been teaching Tango for over 30 years. Tango Nuevo is his specialty. He is the founder of Intango, the first Tango school in Heidelberg, and one of the pioneers of Tango in Southern Germany. Emile has trained numerous tango dancers who are now tango teachers themselves. He teaches the Nuevo School together with Simge who also received her tango teacher training from Emile.
