Welcome to Fabio Robles and Nadim Sawaya’s Leader’s Technique workshop!
With many years of tango under their (tango) belts and having studied extensively with some of the world’s greatest dancers, we are very excited to share some of our training techniques with new and experienced leaders.
This workshop is designed to help leaders enhance their connection, improve their communication with followers, and gain a deeper understanding of the musicality and dynamics of tango.
The class focuses on a range of topics, including:
1. Connection: Leaders learn to establish and maintain a strong connection with their partners through proper embrace and body contact. They explore ways to communicate their intentions clearly and effectively, using subtle signals and body language.
2. Leading Techniques: Leaders work on refining their leading techniques, including the use of body weight, subtle shifts in posture, and precise footwork. They learn to initiate and guide movements, such as walking, ochos, turns, and embellishments.
Throughout the class, participants engage in partner exercises and drills to practice the techniques being taught. In addition, they rotate partners regularly to experience dancing with different followers, which helps leaders adapt to various styles and improve their overall leading skills.
This workshop suits anyone interested in learning to lead or going deeper into their technique. We want to cultivate a sense of artistry, sensitivity, and connection between leaders and their dance partners, ultimately enhancing your overall tango experience. — feeling excited.
