Followers Technique with Marce and Rina

Rina and Marce will guide you through posture, balance, alignment and strengthening exercises in the first part of the class. We will share some great exercises to create and maintain a dancer’s body.
In the main body of the workshop, we will use the work we did and apply it in forward and back ochos, such as the transfer of weight and how we can dance the ochos with style, grace and confidence.
Then, we will discuss how to “dance it”- to suggest and express differently according to the music.
We will also work on some beautiful embellishments to continue practising at home so that you can comfortably apply the work we did in socials.

Open Tango Workshops – one of location

we will be working under the Independent Creative Learning* guidelines  This style of teaching allows for students to learn at their own pace, generally set out by the fastest learners. In an Open tango workshop like this, the student can learn up to 5 advanced combinations of minimum 4 bars of music each.

Within these combinations the student is exposed to the main components of the dance, eg; Giros*, Boleos*, Planeos*, Cortes*, Corridas* etc, and how all these components are placed following or preceding any given movement.

These combinations are taught with music interpretation and positioning in relation to line of dance* in a Milonga* scenario.
