Workshop Chacarera – Mariano Bolfarini

Gran Milonga del Rio de la Plata
Saturday 17 December
16:00 à 22:30 h
The milonga will be preceded by a workshop :
with Mariano Bolfarino (ar)
de 14:00 à 16:00 h
The Chacarera is a folk dance from the north of Argentina.
Unlike tango, Chacarera can be danced by most people in Argentina, especially in the countryside. People dance it a lot during fiestas and also as an invigorating, and joyful break at many milongas in Buenos Aires and around the world.
It is fun to dance and very easy to learn….(but you must have learned it at some point to dance it at a milonga ‘cortina’)!
The basics are relatively simple and in the workshop you will learn enough to be able to dance the Chacarera. It only takes one workshop to master chacarera!
We will not only work with the basic steps, but also with the seducing feeling and emotions that come with the dance. Together we listen to the rhythms of the Chacarera and form the dance piece by piece.
Pleasure is an important element in the Chacarera!
—-Although the Chacarera is is a partner dance, but feel free to come without a partner!—
After the workshop you can stay directly for the Gran Milonga.
We will also dance Chacarera again during the salon.
If you want to participate, come to the workshop to learn the Chacarera!
Let’s have fun all together !
The teacher: Mariano Bolfarino boasts an extensive career, both in Argentina and abroad, as an Argentine dance teacher and choreographer in several dance companies. He also took part in various TV and film projects, including « Tango » by Carlos Saura. Since 2001 he has been based in Brussels, where he teaches the tango and traditional Argentine dances to the general public.
I know him since that time, where he hold his Monday milonga at ‘Los Romanticos’ (Brussels). He was one of my first admirable, dear teachers!
Mariano is also the driving force behind the Tango Queer movement in Brussels!
