Tango Workshop

HOW TO BE BIG IN SMALL PLACES

4*90mins tango workshops to prep you with the best tango tips for a very busy dance floor 😎

Sometimes it is hard to stay calm when there’s a crowd on the dance floor. Somebody is always in your way, obstructing your dance flow, pushing you from behind, not leaving you enough space to dance. You feel squeezed in!!

Our tango maestros – Tango Mistico – Lucas y Judit , – developed this workshop to teach you a technique of keeping the movement tight and even more precise. How to adapt your dancing to the situation on the dance floor and navigate promptly. Improve your improvisation mindset by understanding the structure of the dance. How you can make combinations in any situation, react to unexpected events, and as a follower how to be prepared to interpret them.

Even if you only have the size of a table top to tango, but still have the full dance experience!

Tango workshop program:

Day 1. – How to dance in a small space – figures and tips to make your dance colourful even on a busy dance floor

Day 2. – Navigation on the dance floor – basic habits & rules and how to modify movements to follow the necessary direction

Day 3. – Improvisation – analysis of the tango structure that will enable you to adapt your ideas to any situation quickly and in a super creative way.

Day 4. – Sensitive embrace – perceive your partner’s way of connecting, leading & interpreting, adjusting your embrace to each other and enjoy a full connection

 

Our teachers – Judit & Lucas

“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change”

Our passion is Argentine Tango. Our aim is to make you experience the pleasure of dancing.
With more than 20 years trajectory, we do our best that our students live the beauty of dancing day to day, in all our classes.

Our (short) story

2014 was the year when Lucas and Judit met and had their first but definitely not last dance together in Buenos Aires.  By that year, he had 22 years’ experience in tango and Judit had been dancing for 14 years. They were coming from two very different background – Lucas was born in Argentina and trained by the most renowned masters (most importantly Mingo and Esther Pugliese, Gustavo Naveira and Mariano Chicho Frúmboli) and Judit was born in Budapest and had a strong classical dance background. Yet they both had the same passion for tango and decided to work together to transmit the spirit and knowledge accumulated by the vibrant energy born between them.

After just a couple of months of working together, they already performed in various milongas and festivals in Buenos Aires (as El Yeite Tango Festival and the prestigious C.I.T.A). They spend the greatest part of the year in Budapest where they have regular courses and from there they have the possibility to travel on the weekends to different cities in Europe where they perform and teach.

All this in the magical atmosphere of this beautiful city: BUDAPEST

City tour

Private city tour by bus

Budapest is one of Europe’s great cultural capitals.

Over the past few decades, Budapest has re-emerged as one of the continent’s iconic cities. Split by the Danube and many bridges connect the two parts. Meet your guide at your hotel and begin the program in Pest.

Drive along the elegant Andrássy Avenue, the “Champs-Élysées” of Budapest. Continue to Heroes’ Square, representing 1,000 years of Hungarian history. Going through the historical Jewish district admire the neolog synagogue. Across the river, explore the more traditional Buda side of the city. Visit the Citadel on top of Gellert Hill and pulsate together with the city from the most iconic viewpoint. Arriving to the Castle District up on the hilltop, enjoy the panoramic view of the city from the Fishermen’s Bastion and Matthias Church (the coronation spot of several Hungarian monarchs). Returning to your hotel driving along the riverbank you can take pictures of the beautiful Hungarian Parliament.

Walking tour in the city centre

Budapest always was a beautiful city but the real revival of the capital started after the political systemic change. Explore Budapest’s hidden gems by walking around the Jewish quarter with its triangle of the extraordinary synagogues and Andrássy Avenue.

From the Jewish quarter, we will walk to Andrássy Avenue, which is famous for its architecture and high fashion shops. At the end of the tour, you can enjoy a little time in one of the most famous café of Budapest.

20th of August is always a very special celebration in Hungary. Think of it as huge summer closing party, which has been extremely precious for the locals for thousands of years.  It’s one of our oldest national holidays, when we celebrate the foundation of our state, the state’s founder Saint Stephen, and the “festival of new bread”. It’s not only a national holiday, but also a state occasion, so numerous official events also take place on this day. The swearing-in of new military officers, water and air shows, ceremonial speeches and the spectacular firework show are all among the traditional programmes; but more recently, a number of other festivals have come to be associated with this red-letter day.

City tour on boat – watch the firework from the river and dine

The happiest national holiday of the Hungarians is the 20th of August when the country celebrates its birthday. The festivities of the day are crowned in the evening by the spectacular fireworks over the Danube. You can enjoy it from a private boat through a popular evening cruise with dinner/welcome drink and good music. Tour will start and finish at your hotel by bus to and back from the boat with your guide.

Romantic walk at Buda Castle

Walking tour of Castle Hill, take the funicular to the top. Explore the cobblestone streets and pathways of Buda, Stroll around the grounds of the Royal Palace with its beautiful garden established by the beloved queen of the Hungarians, Sissy (or Queen Elisabeth), and witness the Changing of the Guard. See the beautiful Matthias Church and the Fishermen’s Bastion, and stroll along quaint streets lined with coffeehouses. The tour will stop to enjoy a good coffee and cake in one of them.

 

Visiting Széchényi BathThe perfect place to chill out, to get to know locals and fall in love.

Széchényi Spa Baths (built in 1913) in Budapest is one of the best and largest spa baths in Europe. It is the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic. In addition to the marvellous medicinal natural hot spring waters in the 18 pools (15 indoor baths and 3 grand outdoor pools), there are 10 saunas / steam cabins, several massage therapies, facial treatments, and more. The  Neo-baroque palace was specifically built for hosting Szécheényi Baths as Hungary has been the country of baths (and Budapest the City of Baths) for many centuries.
