Maria & Gianpiero (Seminar/workshops)
Action/Reaction, Connexion & Expressivity
How independence of movement of leader as well as follower, is the base for a constant communication in the dance, creating a continuous and constant flow and dialogue between them. How the consciousness of the different phases and qualities of movement create a deep connection in the dancing couple.
Through the study of concrete technical tools, but also through a global approach on the question of «presence» to oneself and to the others, the aim of this workshop is to provide dancers with very concrete tools as well as open questioning on their very own way of feeling and dancing tango, in order to reach and let out increased musicality, balance and expressivity in the dancing couple, and this without forcesly being professional dancers.
