Denver Tango Workshops with Brigitta Winkler

Brigitta Winkler & Angelika Fischer

A Denver week of workshops with one of the most whimsical and creative teachers of tango.

Hold the dates: May 8 - 15, 2023

"Tango is a Playground for Adults"

Brigitta Winkler is my primary inspiration and most significant tango mentor from the first time I met her in Buenos Aires in 1996. Brigitta Winkler lives in Berlin and New York, and has been one of the most significant originators of the Tango Revival in Europe and the US. She started tango in 1982 a few years before tango started up agin in Argentina. She learned initially from dancers in the original cast of the show "Tango Argentino", and then via frequent visits to the intense Buenos Aires milongas of the 1980s. As a result of this history, Brigitta is a bridge between the young dancers learning in the 1980s & 90s and the elder generation of the 1930s & 40s.

Brigitta has a ballet and dance education background, and she pursued several movement modalities including Somatics, Authentic Movement, and Body Mind Centering. She has experience with both performance and social tango styles, and an extensive traveling history in Europe and the US.  
 
In my experience Brigitta is one of the deepest and most playful & creative teachers I’ve ever met. 
 

Brigitta’s Biography/CV:

I've had the pleasure of inviting Brigitta to Teach frequently in Denver, and I've worked extensively with her over the years. I visited Moscow with Brigitta and Cacho Dante in the early 2000s where we taught at the two first "Moscow Milonguero Festivals."

Be prepared for Brigitta's trademark games, playfulness and insights. Brigitta intends for people to do both lead and follow.
