Tango Workshop

Know your core & axes – FIND YOUR TANGO FREEDOM

These core muscles are strongly associated with the stability of our spine. This set of muscles is made to work on ‘endurance’: at a low level of activation but over a very long period of time.

The stability of the spine is that it basically determines the stability of our whole body – which is key in tango. One of the key elements of tango dancing is understanding and controlling where our axis is: we need to be able to play with it through subtle movements to communicate as precisely as possible with our partner. By stabilizing the spine, core muscles allow us to control where our axis is: we can keep it precisely at the centre of our body, subtly move it, decide on the dynamics of its movements…

And once you find stability in the main movements, you can start improvising and to find your Tango freedom!

Tango workshop program:

  • 1. Hold your axis in close and in an open embrace: How to control your own axis and be responsive to your partner. How to move effortlessly and be fully connected.
  • 2. Out of axis 1 – Volcadas: basic technique and cool combinations
  • 3. Out of axis 2 – Colgadas: basic technique and fun combinations
  • 4. Subtle ways to play with your weight within the couple to give a superb quality to your dance applying the knowledge from the previous classes. It doesn’t have to be big to make it amazing. How to use the centripetal force to achieve dynamic moves.

 

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 of trajectory, we do our best that our students live the beauty of dancing day today, 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 of experience in tango and Judit had been dancing for 14 years. They were coming from two very different backgrounds – 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.

More about Judit & Lucas

Day & Night Budapest Milonga Weekend

We are proud to announce the first edition of the Day & Night Budapest Milonga Weekend with 7 milongas in 6 different locations. Live music, dance performance, snacks and drinks and lots of dancing! More details are coming soon!

 

 

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 neology 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 at 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 – Follow the Spring & Romance, Best photo spots in Budapest

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.Visit the most romantic spots in Budapest also the best photo opportunity places.

At the end of the tour, you can enjoy your lunch in a chic, cosmopolitan, yet utterly local restaurant near the royal castle.

 

 

Budapest by boat at night

 

Budapest dazzles at night, so get a romantic new perspective on the Hungarian capital with this popular evening cruise. Glide down the Danube River past illuminated landmarks like the impressive Parliament Building, sparkling bridges, lively Pest promenade, and Buda Castle, illuminated Liberty statue atop the Gellért Hill and many more…Kick off the festive, one and a half-hour-long voyage in a panorama boat with a welcome drink of sparkling wine and live music and enjoy the 4-course gourmet Hungarian food. 

The Most Beautiful Turkish Bath in Budapest

The Rudas is found a few steps in front of the rocks of Gellért Hill, near the Hungária, Attila and Juventus springs. These Turkish baths were built at the time of the Ottoman occupation in the 16th century, while the spa complex was added at the end of the 19th century. Eight columns support the cupola under which lies the octagonal Turkish pool. This still functions as the centre of the bath. The light shafts shining through the stained glasses of the cupola openings cause a colourful, vibrant effect inside the pool.

A night above the city

A 21st-century overhaul and modernisation have been kind, retaining the Ottoman atmosphere while adding a panoramic Jacuzzi and sunbathing terrace. The best experience is definitely the panorama pool. You can see the Danube and the inner city meanwhile you have a nice bath and enjoy a glass of champagne.

 

Slick waterfront restaurant & terrace – Robinson Restaurant 

Robinson now plays an iconic role in Városliget’s everyday life. The restaurant –uniquely in Europe -was built on the Island of the Varosliget’s Lake, and opened its doors on July 16, 1989. The guests can enjoy our heavenly dishes surrounded by the Liget’s fabulous ancient trees, and watch the lights dancing on the water 

Spine training / Massage / Beauty treatments

Spine and fascia training

Have you ever wondered what exactly does “being grounded”, “pushing the floor” or “activating your centre/core” mean? We hear them quite often at tango classes, but are we really able to understand these concepts in relation to our own bodies AND to incorporate them into our movements?

Body awareness and the ability to use our bodies in an efficient way with minimum effort is key to developing a soft and relaxed, yet stable and energetic presence on the dancefloor that will ensure both long years of pain-free dancing and a high level of comfort on your personal tango journey. Spine and fascia training combines sensorimotor exercises to sharpen your senses and to discover effortless movements with special exercises to treat your fascia – the connective tissue that weaves through your entire body and whose condition is responsible for the vast majority of non-specific low back pain.

Let’s empower our senses and work together for a more balanced, free and elegant dance experience!

Our teacher – Kata

Kata, besides being an avid tango dancer, teacher and organiser herself, is a certified Pilates and PortDeBras instructor with qualifications in spine and fascia training and more than 25 years of experience in historical dancing. She is dedicated to helping her students experience the liberty of movement let it be on the dancefloor, on a mat or in their everyday lives and to share with them the vital knowledge of physical self-care for a long, active and healthy life full of dancing.

The price per hour depends on the number of participants. Please let us know if you are interested to take the class when you register. 

Massage and Cosmetic Treatments ( hairdresser, manicure) 

Beauty Treatments

Would you like to get home after your tango retreat not only feeling more revitalised but looking as well? Please, allow us to recommend our private dermatology clinic partner. The clinic offers a wide range of aesthetic procedures and treatments from cosmetics to plastic surgery. They have many prominent patients; most Hungarian celebrities are attending the clinic as well as Eva Mendez

Please let us know if you are interested and we are happy to provide you via email with further information.
