Marieke Timmer & Hugo Buiten (NL) 21 - 27 July 2019
Are dancers, teachers and promoters of Argentine tango since the early 1990’s. They are organizers and teachers of Cuartito Azul in Rotterdam, Holland.
Both are strongly influenced by the progressive Tango discovery method of the Argentinean teacher and dancer Mauricio Castro. Td covers a lot of clear insights on techniques and exercises to open up one's awareness for moving as a couple, for the music, the tango structure, the elements of this dance and for finding your personal preferences.
Their classes and workshops are known as well organized around a specific theme, with clarity of explanation, with humor and a focus on realizable goals.
They work with clear exercises for understanding structure, good leading and following, biomechanical function and comfort of movement. This leads to improvisation and smooth sequences, dynamics and musicality.
In their classes they give a lot of personal attention to the participants, focusing on technique, fun and efficiency of learning. They use tango and other music like jazz and flamenco in their classes for the purpose of changing sensations and group dynamics.
