Thomas Rieser & Evi Sofra (Berlin)

Thomas Rieser: His first contact with the beautiful world of the Argentine Tango Thomas had during his training for becoming a movement teacher and therapist from 1998-2000 in Stuttart. Later in 2000 in Berlin, he luckily attended his first dance class with Udo Hartmann. The joy and heartiness from Udo's class and dance became his ideal for his own teaching and dancing.
Classes, cooperations and friendships with many Tango dancers, teachers and organizers here and abroad formed his understanding of the Tango, his dance as well as his way of teaching. Connecting the individual progress of each student with the needs of the entire group has over the course of the years become a central focus in his classes as well as in the organisation of his school. The individual personality is in the focus, but at the same time it needs the active effort for a social culture, which referring to Thomas reflects the central idea of the Tango.
In 2004 Thomas founded the school Nou Tango Berlin. Managing his school also means for Thomas to provide positive impulses for the Tango in Berlin and beyond. The culture of this dance lives through every single dancer and can only exist and continue by us. Tango is a contemporary phenomenon with a long tradition that Thomas feels obliged to.

Evi Sofra: Music has always spiked movement for me for as long as I can remember. I finally managed to convince my mother to send me to dance classes in the age of ten and that’s when my official relationship with dance started. Classical ballet, modern, jazz, contemporary dance, even hip hop for a brief period.
I first met tango by accident in 2007. There is something about it that makes it stick to my life among my high priorities ever since. I guess what I like about it is the special language that one has to learn, just to personalize it and find one’s own unique expression; the connection, through which things 'magically' happen; the closeness and immersion, with no words needed; the improvisation that keeps everything interesting; the development of one's personal dance. But most of all the unity and the immersion into a wordless state of intense feeling. This overwhelming sensation is what makes me go on.
As a dancer I try to prepare my body, so that this communication can happen in an easy and clear way, leaving space for creativity and expression. A harmonious, lively embrace and musicality are the elements I value the most in this phase.
As a teacher I try my best to 'infect' my students with passion about this dance and help them through the difficulties that it presents towards their own dance. Seeing students of mine setting off to their own tango life is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had.
