The program includes 4 weeks’ cycle to introduce the
dancer to linear and circular movement, tango, and its
specifics. Classes cover such aspects as balance, axes,
and dissociation exercises. We learn to dance in tango
embrace and communicate through it.
Classes are balanced between techniques of body movement
and emotional connection through the dance. Open
conversations on psychology of tango and its input in
our life. Techniques bring higher awareness of your body,
focusing on nonverbal communication with the partner to
create very smooth movement together. Establishing clear
understanding of the leader and follower role in the dance
to become one. Musicality classes to allow you to feel
the entire depth of the beautiful Argentinian Tango music
and to find you own way to interpret it on the dance floor.
Everyone who wants to improve their skills as a follower
and learn more about the follower’s role in tango is
welcome. Please bring your questions and we will discover
the answers together. Throughout this series we will not
only be growing in our technical skills, extending our
sensitivity, and practicing nonverbal conversation with our
partner, but also having fun learning our responsibilities
as a follower.
