Técnica & Fundamentals
This class is open to all levels with a basic understanding of Tango. (If you're new to the dance l would strongly suggest attending the Beginners Course until you are confident and ready to incorporate the technique to the steps you've learnt in class.) The aim of Técnica & fundamentals workshops is to focus on incorporating and understanding the basic tango techniques through the moves and patterns learnt in classes - Something most of us forget when learning a new step!
Contrary to the belief of most people starting, Tango dancing is all about walking - changing the weight from one foot to another! Once you've gained the confidence of moves at the beginners level and are intrigued by the technical side of the dance, this class is for you! For Intermediate and Advanced Tango dancers, this class aims to push you to your limits incorporating technical awareness to the dance, posture and overall body.
Técnica: It's about a natural movement and weight transfer, being able to control one's balance and confidently grounding yourself to enable coordination of upper body connection, foot placement and partner alignment.
Fundamentals: Understanding your footwork, steps, directions, flourishes and how it all relates to your partner.
So.... How can l make my dancing smoother? What makes a good leader? What makes a good follower? Am l interpreting the music?
These topics and more are covered through individual and partner exercises. Understanding yourself as a dancer makes you a better partner!
