Paras en paul
Tango Atelier


from Craft to Art
A tango journey to find your true tango voice

30 Sep - 1 Oct
Veckenstedt (between Berlin & Hannover)

The event
Taboe2Be is an intensive small group workshop weekend with Paras and Paul.

To be free within the tango embrace requires more than a free spirit. It also needs a solid technical base and a deep understanding of how our bodies move and respond to each other and the music. This 'how' enables the 'what', so we can express ourselves better.

This edition we put more emphasis on this: how we can cleanse and beautify our technical foundation, to move more effectively, effortlessly and attuned. Discover further the free and joyful dancer in us.

We offer an extensive program with about 10 hours of lessons with different flavours. We start with a grounding, relaxing body awareness class in the morning to prepare ourselves to tango. After that we will be fine-tuning our essential technique 'tool kit' with topics as posture, walking techniques, transitions, spirals and decorations during the leaders and followers class. In the last lesson of the day we explore their effect on several tango figures. We make sure that we have enough time in between to forget all instructions and just dance!

Paras will play her famously inspiring music mix of traditional and contemporary tangos until ethnic and other music on the open milonga on Saturday.

Prepare yourself for a rich learning experience with a lot of personal guidance as this time we work with a smaller group. We of course adding our special Taboe ingredients to it with a lot of warmth, joy and laughter!

The teachers
Paras Saghi and Paul Vossen are teaching tango internationally since 2004. They are well known as the organisers of the Taboe Tango Camps. Their 'beyond technique' tango approach makes them as teachers quite unique. They can take the group with ease onto a magic journey, where everybody finds a few hidden treasures to bring home.

By public transport
Hannover -Airport is nearest, then by train to Ilsenburg (around 2 hours). Another option is Berlin Airport, than by flixbus. That is cheap, but maybe the timetable does not fit (around 3 hours). Or from Berlin by Harz-Elbe-Express (cheapest train) to Ilsenburg (again timetable has to fit, around 3 hours).
