Both the Body Dynamics class and the Advanced class start new sessions the Monday after Valentango. There is NO CLASS 2/20: we are all too tired to learn after a festival :-)
7 PM: Body Dynamics
This class focuses on learning stellar technique to add more ENERGY and feeling into your dance. My style is body-based, working towards efficient use of the core to reduce wear and tear on the rest of the body. In each session, we look at how the body is built to move, and then work on using it the right way in tango.
This session, we will be preparing the body to move off-axis for colgadas, volcadas, etc. We will focus on using the core, the stretch of the body and leg strength (protecting the back), and also on freeing up a leg to combine boleos, etc., with these moves.
Also, we will work on being able to dance beautifully in small spaces. Dancing small is hard to do with power and energy, but it is possible!
Designed for intermediate and advanced dancers, or beginners with dance background.
8 PM: Advanced class
Come challenge yourself! Make your dance flow better; add sensuousness, balance, connection, musicality, adornos--take it to the next level!
This session, the advanced class will focus on appropriate-for-the-social-dance-floor colgadas, volcadas, single axis turns, and playing with the axis. Each week, we will do a new combination, concentrating on dynamics, musicality and connection.
For dancers with at least three years tango experience, or instructor's permission. No partner necessary. You may work with a partner you bring to class, or trade partners.
$60/6 week session for one class. Special: sign up for both for $90! Drop in is $12/class.
