Dear friends, we Thanita Thana, Lilia Keller & Ariel Micale are happy to invite you for the second time to our private Thanari traditional tango weekend.

Included in the price

Add-ons

venue

Since May 2019 Ariel Micale and I, Katharina Sigel, are the owners of this huge and wonderfull farm. It includes two hectares  land, five buildings and a little pond (no swimming) in a small little forest.

The farm is located in the beautiful, agricultur area of Prignitz, exactly between Hamburg and Berlin, easy to reach from A24. 

By train you reach the farm with the RE6 from Berlin and from Hamburg with IC(E) and RE6. 

A shuttle service from the trainstation Pritzwalk will be provided.

 

The 100qm dance-floor is pretty new and specially designed for Tango. Here you have the best air condition you can imagine as well as the best sunset you can get in front of a charming wide field. Dj’s overview the dancers and floor from our famous ship. Also, for the ladies to change and prepare for dancing an extra room in our middle barn would be available.

As you can see, it’s very worth it to spend the weekend at Thanari even without Tango – but it’s way more special and a fantastic combination with it. We are delighted to welcome you to come and enjoy our small paradise.

DJs

Nathan Leptin - Hamburg

Guillermo Monti - Buenos Aires

Max Stasi -
Milano

Christiane & Timo - Berlin

My DJ journey started in 2014, when I DJed for a couple of different milongas in my then-hometown of Muenster. Ever since, I’ve collected experiences in many different places both in Germany and other Countries in and around Europe. I DJ regularly on different Milongas in my hometown Hamburg. When I DJ I feel like I’m dancing with the whole crowd. The flow of energy from and towards the people on the dancefloor gives me a passion that is just as intense as my passion for the dance and music of Tango itself. I try to balance out rythm and melody, though I must admit to be leaning towards the faster and more energetic section of tango music.

Born in Buenos Aires I grew up with Tango and since 2012 I am living in Berlin and Buenos Aires. As a DJ, whether I am playing digital music or original vinyls, it is very important to me that the dancers can hear the best possible quality of music. Currently, I am DJ’ing in local milongas in Berlin and Buenos Aires and I am travelling a lot through Europe for festivals and marathons like “EL Fuego” and “El Navegador” in Warsaw, “Marathon de Oro”, Krakow, “Festivalito de Verano” in Iasi Romania, “Tango Story” in Timisoara Romania, “Encuentro Portenio” Amsterdam, “Milonga Ideal” Moscu and many more.
Tango is a feeling, it´s passion, it´s desire, nostalgia, happiness, sadness, it´s a poem. This is how the tango is like, this is how Buenos Aires is, this is how I am.

Max began dancing and collecting Tango music in 1999. He started active Dj-ing in 2006; during this period He has collaborated and still works with most of the major Milongas in the Milan area and many venues across Europe. He regularly DJs at international Marathons, Encuentros, Festivals, Milongas in Europe, North America and Asia. To date he has animated around 1200 events in about 20 countries worldwide The backbone of his work, organized in Tandas y Cortinas, is represented by the music of the Golden age, with frequent detours towards the orchestras of the Guardia Vieja and of the early 1950s. For Max every event is different and unique. All tandas and transitions are improvised based on observation of the dancers, shaping the rhythmic and emotional energy of the dancefloor. Max’s other big passion is wine, and he likes to compare a DJ set to a great wine: Intense, Complex, Spicy, Harmonic … and after every sip (tanda) … you want immediately another one.

Christiane and Timo are real “Berlin plants”. They started dancing tango in 2001 – very quickly it became a passion. In addition to intensive dancing at local milongas, they both travel a lot to marathons all over Europe.

In 2019, together with friends, they organized their first milonga in Berlin, since then they both regularly DJ at private and public milongas. Besides dancing, DJing has become a second great passion. The constant search for the best music and good recordings made the music library grow immensely in the meantime.

Musically, the focus is on the Golden Era of Tango – but not exclusively, in order to bring enough excitement to the dance floor. Well-known pieces are occasionally supplemented by less frequently played tangos. Rhythmic tandas alternate with lyrical pieces. As passionate dancers, a varied dynamic and a good danceability of the pieces is essential for them.

Maestros

Leila Reese & Claudio Ceballos

Leila Reese & Claudio Ceballos

Raised in Palermo, Buenos Aires discovers tango at a young age through his “milonguero” uncle.
Initially he studied classical guitar, music composition and performance in Argentina and the USA with distinction. Back in his home country he dedicates himself fully to the tango again. Here he studies intensively with the best maestros of the city – Gustavo Naveira, Sebastian Arce, Javier Rodriguez, Gabriel Misse, Leandro Oliver, Demian Garcia – the tango he wants to dance and pass on himself: ‘Tango Salon’ and studies tango and folklore at the ‘Instituto Universitario Nacional de Artes’ (IUNA-BsAs).

From 2015 a permanent part of the ‘Escuela argentina de tango’, he teaches groups and individuals and starts touring and dancing shows internationally with his partner. On these paths, he meets a dance couple that, as he says, has inspired and influenced Him in a special way: Geraldin Rojas and Ezequiel Paludi. In Italy he has the good fortune to work directly with them, personally and dance-wise a very special honor.

One of his special talents is to be able to put himself perfectly in the perspective of both roles – leading and following. In this way he is able – although always with a partner – to accompany and sharpen both roles equally intensively.
Good technique leads to a natural connection. Leading and following becomes easy, fluid and precise – whether we have a lot of space or not. A bailar!

Since 2019 CCC lives in Berlin, where he teaches groups and private lessons to support tango dancers of all levels in their development through precise technique and details. He teaches alternatively in 4 languages: German, English, Spanish and Italian.

 

In Hamburg Leila first came in touch with the world of tango through a colleague in 2007. From the very first moment, she was particularly touched by the music. During the following year she attended the city’s milongas just listening and observing the atmosphere. Only after many hours of observation, she begun to participate in group courses and to take private lessons. Since then, the tango has accompanied her around the world, participating in tango events and bringing her frequently to Buenos Aires. With the same passion as in the beginning – listening and observing -, Leila continues her intensive study and training with local maestros. “Tango became my home no matter where I lived.”

Leilas investigation of movement started in young age training gymnastics, later picking up on ThaiChi and yoga, which is part of her daily routine. As a complement to tango, Leila trains regularly ballet and does bodywork with who, according to her, is one of the role figures in her life, Marcela Trapé from BsAs. She deeply investigated the body as a connected musculoskeletal system and in tango she focuses on intensive detailed work as a basis for a certain communication within the embrace.

Since 2020 Leila has been training tango and taking regular lessons with Claudio Ceballos Cruz and assisting him with courses in Berlin.

TEAM

Ariel Micale

I was born in Argentina and grew up with tango music thanks to my mother, who was a tango piano teacher. I don’t dance tango, but I love the music.

My main work at the moment is yard work, but in my free time I like to make steampunk art. The rickshaw in the photos is my very own artwork.

Cooking is second nature to me because of my Italian father’s restaurant. I am looking forward to spoiling you with my delicacies at the Tango Event.

Thana (Katharina Sigel)

I have been a passionate tango dancer for 22 years and have always traveled internationally a lot. Since 2019, with the purchase of our farm and Corona it has become quite quiet about my tango. Now I am doing everything I can to bring the tango to Thanari and look forward to your numerous attendance.

Besides the organizational activities I am a teacher, owner of the Tango Shoe Station Berlin and a visual artist. Here I am mainly occupied with the medium glass. I make unique glass jewelry and glass sculptures. Look forward to a rich offer during the Tango Event from my own workshop.

Lilia Keller

I have been a tango teacher in Berlin for 19 years. I organize milongas & tango vacations and enjoy being a tango DJ.

I first came into contact with tango in Los Angeles in 2000, and the love for tango has been burned deep into my life ever since.

Since 2015 I am at home with my classes in the Tangoloft and since the pandemic I run my own little tango salon.

I love to DJ in Berlin tango clubs like Tangoloft, Art 13, Clärchens Ballhaus, Nou-Tangolounge, Milonga Popular-DJ Candlelight Floor & Haus der Sinne.

Kilian & Josh

We are Kilian and Josh and you are going to find us most of the time behind the bar. We know each other for more than 2 decades time and been working in the event gastronomy for some years. We got in touch with Tango because of Thana, she showed us everything we know about it. But until now we’re not the most passionate dancers but that can change very fast 😉.

We were already on the last Tango event working behind the bar and enjoyed the weekend a lot.

We are looking forward to serve you delicious drinks and fresh self-made juices.
