From 2015 on all the information & news will be provided there ...
For over a decade Komala has been teaching in Europe where she is highly respected. She has a profound knowledge of the body and of the dynamics of tango. Her workshops followers are invaluable to followers who want to know their bodies better and to become more active in the dance, and her other workshops deal primarily with the energy and dynamics of the dance, preparing leaders and followers for a new level of communication.
Komala started tango dancing in 1990. She began her professional career by teaching together with Eric Jorissen, founder of the famous tango center, El Corte, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. She is currently a main hostess and teacher of El Corte.
Stefan started Tango in May 1997 because he needed some Tango steps for a chanson he was singing in a local theatre group :-)
In no time he was completely caught up by this fascinating dance and could barely finish his preparations for a black belt in Karate. After achieving his black belt he very soon realized that he preferred a partner who is not responding to every movement he makes with a punch but with a soft and gentle movement ;-)
After spending 1 year in Munich dancing nearly every night he was ready to look for something more and he found it in another city in another country: Nijmegen - Holland. There he stopped taking classes for a while and started dancing - all night & day long. And there he learned that there are mainly 3 components which make a Tango a Tango:
- the partner you're dancing with
- the music you're dancing to
- the other people who are dancing in the same room with you
After this period of 'just dancing' he started to take lessons again with different Argentinian teachers - among them Nancy y Damian. But the most inspiration he got from his work with Eric Jeurissen & Komala - not only regarding the dance but also the teaching.
The most important thing since then is for him
'not what you dance but how you dance it'.
There are some little updates in the lifes of Komala & Stefan :-)
