Human Nature Dance Studio
4 Phoenix Street
Class 1: 1-2:00
There are no mistakes, only opportunities for improvisation. This workshop kicks off the day with a playful and improvisational approach to your dance. Some questions we will look at are: What is improvisation? How do I get more of it into my tango dancing? How do I invite it in my partner? We will play both outside and inside the vocabulary and roles of tango with solo, duet and group improvisations. This class is intended to free up your body/mind and broaden your dancing possibilities.
Class 2: 2:15-3:15
Molinete, Sacada, Cruzada, Oh My !….:
In this class we'll play with concepts and ideas of 3 classic Tango movements - Molinete, Sacada, Cruzada. We'll work with some of the conventional ideas of these movements and then integrate some ideas of how to move as lead/follow, proposer/interperter, using techniques and ideas such as "follow your lead", "interruption" and "balance and contact".
Class 3: 3:30 – 4:30
Mix and Match
In the final class we'll pull it all the ideas together into a base figure and then play with different options/opportunities/variations using the vocabulary of the day. You'll be invited to discover new ways to mix and match the movements to the music and then share with the class.
