Tango Body with Abby Hoffmann - 2nd May 2014

Tango Argentino firstly requires connection, then balance, but always freedom and grace in this most elegant and sensual of dances. However, sometimes it can be hard to find the necessarily fluidity, ease of movement and release of tension, particularly a after long day behind a desk or in a car.
These ongoing workshops are a blend of yoga, anatomy and kinesiology, body work and relaxation techniques - designed especially for tango and tango dancers of all levels. You will leave the session, refreshed, elongated, stretched and nourished from within and take home personalised information for your body and your dance.

Workshop 1. 
Spine and Axis In this first workshop, we’ll explore the way the spine moves and influences our movement patterns both on and off the dance floor. Using our own bodies as a laboratory, we’ll delve into some of the anatomy and architecture of the central axis, and the way movement is influenced by tension, compression and gravity.

How we are is how we dance, and so we’ll also investigate some of the movement patterns and habits that we are drawn toward, and explore how to undo unhelpful postural and muscular tension. The session will end with a deep relaxation designed to refresh and restore!

Experience level: this workshop is suitable for all levels of dancer although some experience of yoga is helpful, it is not essential.

Wear: loose fitting clothing you can move in Bring: a small towel to lie on or a yoga mat if you have one

Price: €20
