Every camp we have a central theme to give a focus and inspiration to the teachers and the participants. We had various inspiring themes already such as: Music - Stillness - Contact - Contrast - Space- Time - Creativity - Intimacy - Dare- Trust - Play - Pure - Imagine -Change - Balance.
Tango can be more than dancing and having fun. Often we also encounter more ’inner’ issues, such as ’intimacy’, ’how to be playful again’, ’saying yes or no’, ’showing more of yourself’, ’how to change your patterns’, ’becoming more open or receptive’, ’how to take care of yourself in a group’, etc.
Once a day everybody who likes it is coming together and Paras will guide the group through these kind of themes. Often with a smile, sometimes crazy and possibly very touching and more silent. You never know. We like sometimes to come together at the end of the gathering to share in smaller family groups. For many participants these gatherings are one of the highlights of the camp.
At the camp we offer 12 to 15 workshops a day for you free to choose. We ask the teachers to be inspired by the camp theme. This way we get often the most refreshing or magical workshops. We really want the camp to be a social event. So we encourage you to take classes and dance with many different partners. Teachers will invite you to swap partners at the workshops, but only if you like.
We will help you to find partners during the day and evening. We even have a wall with photos of each participant so you easily can identify partners you are looking for.
So enjoy body work classes in the morning such as Yoga, Guided meditation or Feldenkrais and once we even had an boxing workout. In the afternoon you can refind yourself with an intensive Yin Yoga session.
When the weather allows we go one day to a nearby lake and have an outside milonga in the water.
Just hanging out, making fun, have a workshop in the water and dance in the lake.
Sometimes we hire a professional band and mostly we have some participants creating a special Taboe Tango band. So if you like, bring your instrument or voice.
During the café and milonga‘s we play a mixture of traditional and non-traditional music. We create different evenings with different musical atmospheres, sometimes more traditional and sometimes more out of the box.
Beltango is an amazing tango orchestra of 5 musicians from Belgrade founded in 1998. They play from traditional to experimental music. They are (a bit) crazy and free spirits that play the most passionate tango.
Beltango played already twice for us and each time we had an amazing concert with great music to dance.
They will play at the extra milonga on the 26th at the Camp site and a second time during the Taboe Camp with a different repertoire. Check the Beltango website for more inspiration.
