Tango and blues fuse beautifully to create spectacular new shapes, and new ways of connecting with each other on the dance floor.
In this 3 hour intensive we'll focus on single-axis and shared-axis movements (also called calesitas and colgadas) moving from techniques and simple motions to dynamic and rich rotations.
For leads, this workshop will spice up our dance vocabulary. For followers, we will open our eyes to new ways of connecting.
We will build upon our existing skills as blues dancers or tango dancers.
