Yes we all are a little bit rusty and clumsy after 1,5 year of saving the world. Let’s kick the post-corona season (and hope it will last :)) with a short but intense weekend full of learning and practicing! Lucky us, with this one time offer we have an amazing couple of pedagogs, Damian Thompson and Beata Neumann coming to Helsingborg to meet cosy Tango Fortuna community, on the 8-10 October this year. With them they bring a severe advanced (made easy) set of techniques and sequences that will bring your dance to another level. Now, that is what we call a survivors’ weekend: Milonga on Friday 8/10, 21.00-24.00 Two sets of workshops (2 hours before lunch and after) on Saturday 9/10 and Sunday 10/10: 10.30-12.30 and 16.30-18.30 Praktika inbetween, 13.00-16.00 Milongas on Saturday night, 21.00-01.00 and Sunday evening 19.00-22.00 Topics of workshops will be discussed with the registered participants but personal favourites would be complex sacadas, surprising changes of lead and direction, sequences challenging balance and coordination as well as enhancing smooth playfullness like for example seamless barridas. Price for the whole weekend inclusive workshops, all praktikas and milongas is 1000 SEK per person or 1800 per couple. Price for milongas/praktikas paid separately is 100 kr per occasion. Yes we are fully aware of the pressure our brain, feet and in some cases, relationships will experience. For the participants registered we offer a chance to sleep over at Project Pocket in basic conditions (back to youth camps!! :)) and have breakfasts together. An option is to include lunch and dinner on Saturday-Sunday in the package, for additional 200 kr per person in total.Read More

You know what we did last Summer? We started for the first time, a ladies carpenters group with a main aim to let go of fear of failure, supremacy of perfectionism and shyness of work with tools. Experiments and team work have been our leading stars. From this initiative, a smaller group of brave and talented ladies have decided to move on and start up REFORM: initiative for upcycling of old furniture. And to make the whole thing more fun, in November a furniture design competition took place with support from Helsingborg city. Four groups of young non-professionals accepted the challenge. Results of this experiment will be displayed at Project Pocket during March. Entrance is free however we appreciate your support if you order a cup of tea/coffee and tell us what you think of the ideas.Read More
