TangoTools Seminars: Ready for extra flavors?    (by Marisela)

Twice a month on a Friday, I will share my take on the many tools  for dancing and understanding tango that I have acquired through more than 17 years of researching, dancing and teaching tango.
Each year, in my trip to Buenos Aires I make  a list of accomplished tango dancer whom teaching approach I want to check.
While many of the tango concepts are the same, the tools and techniques that each accomplished dancer  use  to explain their brand of tango, in most cases, seem diametrically opposed to the equally skillful tango dancer next door.  No wonder why there is tango war in many communities, but then that happens in any religion, politics and other human field. 
My idea for these seminars is not to change your mind about your tango or whatever style you most favor, but to open up to new additions that may enrich what you already possess. 
I will work with concepts and exercises that I own because they make sense to me and I have integrated them  in my dance or have tested their efficacy dancing with many partners.  
Come and give it a try, it may add that little extra for you and your partner enjoyment.
At 420 West 12th.
Here a taste of the concepts that we will be exploring: 
  • How to get more vocabulary into your dancing the painless way: Foot chasing and creative geometric.
  • How  to get the ahhhh feelings from the guy and the girl. The embracing lab.
  • I want to dance too- The follower inner confession and the guy's puzzle look: What do you mean?
  • Find the music in unusual places! ticky, ticky
  • And more, more... guarantee to have a fun and fulfilling experience. The concepts above are in not particular order.
