The importance of balance and precision made evident! This difficult combination is our objective so we will review all the skills necessary to succeed.
July 18, 2015 Create & Develop
Regular students of my classes will appreciate the complexity of the class based on this explanation - I hope! Others may want to find out what it is all about.
We will attempt to integrate: ‘wheelbarrows’, ‘pepper grinders', ‘piano pushers', ‘marionette strings', ‘champagne’, ‘fulcrum', ‘walnuts', ‘the containment field’, ‘coffee’, ‘light sabers', ‘dusting’, 'crocodiles’, ‘brandy’ and ‘steel pipe’ into a combination(s) that contains all of them.
July 11, 2015 Off-Axis
There are two identified off-axis experiences that are given names in Argentine Tango: Colgada (to hang) and Volcada (to spill over). Any amount of off-axis deviates from the classical position of the autonomous vertical axis. We will explore how these off-axis movements are achieved, safely. Not all moves can be safely accomplished by all combinations of dancers – it greatly depends on height differences between the partners – so we must start out very gently and see what is possible with each partner we encounter. This class is Intermediate Level.
