Course Description: This workshop will look at different techniques we use to connect in the tango Embrace. In particular, we will learn the difference between useful tension that builds a clear and solid embrace and unnecessary tension that blocks the energy of the embrace. We welcome couples with a set leader and follower as well as couples where both dancers are working on both roles. This is also a great workshop for leaders who are starting to follower and vice versa.
What to Wear
Shoes with suede or leather soles.
Comfortable clothes that you can move in. If you sweat a lot, please bring an extra shirt. We recommend long or quarter length sleeves as well.
Personal hygiene is very important- please make sure you come to class fresh and clean, so your partner can enjoy being close to you!
One tanda with Fernanda Ghi is a life changing experience. The past and future of tango are within the confines of her body. In her embrace you will find decades of tango history, the steps, sacadas, pivots, subtle shifting of weight, and the memory of gritty voices narrating the intense beauty of being human. And, if you pay attention, you will get a glimpse of what tango has yet to achieve as a dance, an art form, and a universal language." - Ion
