Power & Playfulness in Tango with Sayaka & Joscha
12:00 - 18:00
SAYAKA HIGUCHI & JOSCHA ENGEL BIO
Sayaka & Joscha approach dancing in very pure way.
Drawing from many other forms of moving arts and functioning of the human body, they create a deeply relaxed and highly energetic way of expressing emotion in movement and dancing communication.
Their key to teaching and dancing tango lies in a technical and energetic understanding of the human body. Through awareness and relaxation they show how to connect and propose oneself to the other. Music in movement is the resonance of both dancers’ sensation and individual musical interpretation.
Sayaka & Joscha show tango as a subtle and highly creative communication process; both partners are mutually contributing to the deeply emotional expression of their encounter. The relaxation and elegance of their movement gives way to a very touching and beautiful tango experience.
POWER & PLAYFULNESS in TANGO
It is the fifth Dublin visit for Sayaka and Joscha. Every time it has been received with great appreciation by tango community in Ireland.

They are helping their students and dancers to transform their movement and reach more ease and joy while dancing tango at the milongas.

OPEN LEVEL WORKSHOP
FUNDAMENTALS-TOOLS TO ENJOY YOUR TANGO
In this open level workshop we will go deep into the basics of tango such as THE WALKING, THE EMBRACE & THE COMMUNICATION IN THE COUPLE. It is suitable for all levels and designed for the individual progress in each couple.
PREPARATION FOR POWERFUL MOVEMENTS
This workshop will put its emphasis on the intention and therefore the preparation for stronger movements. Where to start the preparation in my body? What has to happen in the embrace? We will work with examples to understand the moment of preparation for powerful movements.
INTENSITIES-POWER AND RELEASE
We have a look at opposing body tones to find out how to use them complementary. Power and release help each other to get stronger in the own expression and so they bring more variety of interpretation into our dance.
9pm-2am MILONGA & SHOW DJ JOHAN STEYN
SUNDAY 30th OF SEPTEMBER
THE MUSIC OF POWERFUL MOVEMENTS
Intentions of powerful movements and how and what we want to express with it is the topic of this workshop. We can give different colours to our movement regarding the music we hear or intend to express in the couple. We apply different body techniques to start playing.
IMPROVISATION-COMMUNICATION TO PLAY
This workshop is about the moments to play in the couple in the improvised dance. When are the right moments to play and how can we communicate this to our partner? Tools and examples for more freedom in the dance without losing the connection.
DRAMATURGY- POWER AND PLAYFULNESS APPLIED
We combine the previous workshops to create an individual and unique form of improvisation in our Tango. When to increase the power, when to play, when to make an impact in the music – in this last workshop of the seminar we work on expressing the spontaneous creations in the couple.
It is recommended to participate in the entire weekend seminar with Sayaka & Joscha. The continuous and progressive approach to tango knowledge and preparing the body for deeper work offers the most benefits to the dancers.
