ARGENTINE TANGO: CONNECTION AND COMMUNICATION


ARGENTINE TANGO:
CONNECTION AND COMMUNICATION

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2022
2 – 5PM

FACULTY: MIRANDA LINDELOW
TUITION: $75

How do we connect and communicate with our bodies in Argentine tango?

The aim of this workshop is to learn, explore and understand how we
connect and communicate with and through our bodies in Argentine
tango. Argentine tango is characterized by the improvised structure
based on connecting with the dance partner, the cadence
of the tango music and the other couples on the dance floor, while
moving together counterclockwise in a close embrace. Tango is
often associated with leading and following. Instead of focusing on
leading and following as opposites, we are focusing on the idea of
tuning in with each other and moving as one.

The idea starts with a quotation from Bessel van der Kolk’s The Body
Keeps the Score
, “Being in tune with other members of our species […]
is enormously rewarding. What begins as the attuned play of mother
and child continues with the rhythmicity of a good basketball game,
the synchrony of tango dancing, and the harmony of choral singing
or playing a piece of jazz or chamber music — all of which foster a
deep sense of pleasure and connection.”
