This week we will explore Soltadas + Sacadas with our guest teacher, Gaby Mataloni who is visiting us from Buenos Aires.

We encourage dancers of all levels to utilize advance figures and elements as a way to deepen fundamental technique. The objective is to expand our movement vocabulary and ability to communicate with ease and efficiency.

▲ Technique We begin the class with somatic practices or individual movement exploration that will deepen our awareness of the body, and our understanding of the mind body connect. With this foundational approach, we will explore technique that is specific to tango movement. The objective is to find efficiency, fluidity and embodiment of tango movement.

▲ Improvisation Our objective is to understand how tango sequences are built so that we can gain a better understanding of the vocabulary and begin to construct simple combinations to complex patterns that can be improvised at a give situation or moment within the dance.

✌︎ Open to all levels of experience ✌︎ Role changing is essential
