When: Thursday, May 25, 7:30-10 pm
Where: Palermo, Buenos Aires (address will be sent to you when you sign up)
What: A unique + intimate workshop to teach you about how to tap into your uniquely female powers through your body and posture. . . in tango, any dance scene, and in life, in any male-dominated space.
Learn about tango in Buenos Aires and awaken the tango goddess in you in this unique, intimate evening tango-life workshop taught by author, blogger, tanguera and life coach Sasha Cagen.
Through this unique workshop that brings together tango and life coaching, you’ll learn to use the posture of tango as a tool for your empowerment as a woman. You are also going to learn about PUSSY WALKING!
The workshop also includes gluten-free empanadas, alfajores and wine so it doubles as dinner! (We will get the food, dessert and wine for everyone, please just bring 150 pesos to cover these costs in person.)
NOTE: You do not need to dance tango to benefit from this workshop. The essence of what you will learn is how to hold your body as a queen. Those lessons will benefit you in the milonga–or in any male-dominated space (aka a workplace or the street). Ultimately Sasha plans to give this workshop in male-dominated workplaces for female empowerment.
What You Will Learn
You go to tango classes to become a better dancer, but no one teaches you how to survive and thrive at the milonga as a woman. No one teaches you how to avoid spirals of depression when you “planchar” (sit and wait for a dance.)
That’s what we will do at this workshop–we empower you for tango and for other areas of life too.
We will start at 7 pm with gluten-free empanadas and alfajores and Malbec to get to know each other and get loosened up 😉
Sasha Cagen will guide you through an intimate workshop with conversation and playful exercises as we play together to find the tango goddess posture inside each of us, sitting and standing.
Here’s what you can expect to get out of this intimate workshop:
* Take much greater control of how you are perceived in a milonga . . . get more and better dances
* Connect with other women on topics that rarely get talked about in a safe space–make new friends to go to milongas with
* Learn the concept of a mirada and find your unique mirada style through our mirada/cabeceo games. The mirada is the woman’s tool for generating dances and is often not taught at all in traditional tango educational settings. This is noteworthy and exemplary of the machismo that still permeates tango culture today. Many women still think of invitations to dance as being generated by the men, or cabeceo only.
* Discover your unique tango goddess sitting stance nd standing posture, so you can use this when you go out to dance or anytime you want to feel powerful
* If you are new to tango or tango in Buenos Aires you will get lots of insider insight from Sasha and other participants to enrich your experience
After the workshop, those who want to go to a milonga to try out the lessons can go together.
From a recent Tango Goddess workshop participant, Erin Elizabeth: “I don’t know what you did to me, but I did the pussy walk and the goddess stance and the *performer* asked me to dance…And he was unbelievably good…I think I owe you my first born. I at *least* owe you dinner!”
Taught by: Quirkyalone author + movement founder, life coach and Tango Adventure founder Sasha Cagen. Sasha’s work has been featured on CNN with Anderson Cooper, NPR, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and more.
In her coaching practice, Sasha works with women around the world on career, relationship, and self-worth. She uses tango as a tool in her coaching practice with women to help them find balance and confidence.
Her 7-day Tango Adventure teaches women from around the world to reconnect to themselves through tango and this Tango Goddess workshop is for women already in Buenos Aires. We will primarily conduct the workshop in English though we’ll speak slowly for those who do not speak English as a native language.
This Tango Goddess Workshop is a popular part of the 7-day Tango Adventure, so now Sasha’s making it available to tangueras and non-tangueras alike in Buenos Aires as a separate workshop.
This is the first time we are offering this workshop as a special standalone offer so the price is much lower than it will be in the future. If you want to learn these tactics, come now!
At Sasha’s private residence. After you sign up you will get the address via email.
