Tango with Ute Walter

1 pm – 6 pm                          Cost: free                                  Level: ALL
Location: Club Italia, 20 Brixton Road, SW9 6BU, London (Oval)

Tango is often being described like a “conversation” or a dialogue” between to people and it represents an attitude affected among other things by mutual respect, empathy, presence, clarity and a relative autonomy of the partners.
Tango is an improvised dance. The steps are like the words of a language. After each step everything is possible. The path is created by walking.
The workshop will use simple movements and exercises for establishing mindfulness, connection with one’s self, partner and musical sensitivity.

Ute Walter belongs to the first generation of European Tango teachers, gaining experiences from more than 25 years of dancing and teaching. Ute runs her own School ‘Nuevas milongueras’ in Hamburg and works internationally (Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Argentina, USA). The emphasis of her teaching is based on her scientific work in the relation to Tango and mindfulness, dialogue and gender. She is qualified and experienced in several methods of mindfulness training. She created the term "queer tango" and is one of the initiators of the queer tango movement together with Marga Nagel and Felix Feyerabend and worked for many years on building the worldwide queer tango community.     
Ute will be assisted by Cornelia Zell:
Cornelia Zell (Hamburg) studied Contemporary Dance in Amsterdam. She worked internationally as dancer and choreographer and has more than 20 years of teaching experience in dance and movement. Today she works as a teacher for Contemporary Dance, Contact Improvisation, Tango and Bodywork. Cornelia has been dancing Tango for 15 years.
