SEMINAR "CONNECTION" (4,5h)

One of the things we love when dancing tango is embracing our partner and listening to each other... But what does this mean?

In this seminar we are going to talk about how we become aware of the movement of the other, going deeper into the search of the reasons that handle the lead-follow relationship between the man and woman and understanding which part of our movement is useful for this dialogue and which other could disturb it. We will review controversial issues and false myths talking about what we understand with expressions as: relax, lead with the hand or with the chest, not anticipate, being in the axis, being natural, using the ground, ground connection.

The objective of the seminar is to accomplish a clean, clear and pleasant communication in the couple, to develop fluent dynamics and expressing oneself with freedom.
