After vacation and some minor renovations we are officially back and getting into a rhythm!
(pun intended..haha..). So our online Tango classes are starting along with our practices and workshops.
As you will see below the theme for the Fall is balance, posture and alignment. This one might say is a recurring theme but it is also a recurring “problem”. We will attempt to approach the matter from various perspectives to offer the tools you need to feel confident on and off the dance floor.
Online Tango Schedule
Wednesday September 29th, Tango Movement Lab, Live Practices
Our live practices are restarting. Tango Movement Lab will be running every Wednesday 12:15 to 12:45, Toronto time. Short, sweet and to the point practices on all fundamentals.
October 3rd, a Pay from the Heart workshop on Posture, Alignment and Balance, at 1-2pm, Toronto time
Our Pay from the Heart workshops are donation based workshops with no ticket nor registration required.
This will give you the opportunity to hit restart if you were on a break with Tango but also offer you strong tools for a more efficient everyday movement.
Links to connect will be shared closer to the date. But send me your questions, thoughts and trouble on posture and balance and I will address them in the class.
October 9th to October 30th Posture Intensive, Online Tango Classes
For 4 Saturdays from October 9th, 12:00 to 1:30 pm (Toronto time)
Anything that would affect your posture will be tackled here, from breathing and alignment to simple and intricate movements.
We will see how posture reshapes to allow you to move through each position with ease.
And of course we will be working on awareness, defining healthy and unhealthy habits and finding the tools to replace the latter with the former.
Our themes for our Intensive:
- Posture Basics, the dos and don’t(s) for a healthy posture
- Posture and the walk
- The special demands of the different kinds of steps
- Preparation for pivots, the intricacy of the rotation
Touching on all fundamentals for a strong restart!
Though our titles are pretty straight forward, we are aiming to firstly identify unhealthy habits that may be hurting you but also holding you back. Then we will progress in to how our posture changes and breathes as we walk, and dance through our walks; we will play with different kinds of steps, smaller- bigger, slower-faster, parallel-cross system and more. Lastly, of course we will look at our posture through ochos!
Do you need Tango experience for this? Absolutely not..!
