  • Contact/Experimental Tango Special

    "In-Between leading & following"

  • Adriana Pegorer

  • We are going to investigate and cultivate the transitional space during which the roles can be changed: anything there is In-Between … and beyond!!
    After a designed warm-up we will have a short dancing discussion about 'roles' to then dive into playful guided explorations.

    What happens just before one decides to switch role? How is that change being offered and received? How is the movement of the arms from one position to the other? Are there any feelings or emotions associated with those moments? Does the body presence change from one role to the other and how is the space In Between any different?

     Please note: this workshop will mainly use the standing position as used in traditional tango dancing. If you are curious about Contact Tango but you are unsure about give/receive weight or acrobatics or roll on the floor then this workshop is for you!
