Sabine Zubarik & John-Michael Mendizza (Erfurt)
Sabine and John-Michael teach together in Erfurt and other places in Germany as well as in the US. They also both DJ at various events.
Sabine’s main interest is didactics; she organizes the annual TangoTeacherMeeting in Erfurt now in its 5th year, and leads courses for teachers. In addition, she researches tango academically.
John-Michael and Sabine teach close as well as open embrace. With uncomplicated step material they try to convey a feeling for musical dancing.
Languages: German, English
Individual lesson: 30,00 Euro + 10 Euro surcharge
Sabine and John-Michael will offer daily classes with covering a broad variety of Tango knowledge, which could also be interesting for medium beginners to expand their Tango horizon.
Since these are consecutive classes, we recommend the booking of the complete package (8 days). Nevertheless, booking either the first or second half of the camp with 4 classes each also makes sense, because they focus on different themes:
1st part (Saturday to Tuesday): Technique + Connection
2nd part (Wednesday to Saturday): Musicality + Dynamics
You can find the actual topics under 'classes'.
