Catherine & Craig Tango Connection Workshop – February 29th, 2020

The theme of the two classes is deepening the conversation in the dance. Class 1: Connection and Collaboration Connection and Collaboration will help leaders and followers deepen their abilities to be aware of their partner, improvise with each other and the music, and deepen somatic communication through games and exercises. Class 2: Awareness and Agency Expanding on the Connection and Collaboration class, Awareness and Agency explores pivots, pasadas, and the molinete in the context of deepening the conversation between leaders and followers. We will look at how pivots can be an avenue of expression for followers, a variety of entrances into the pasada, leaders and followers using different rhythms in the molinete. We’re excited to welcome Catherine Young and Craig Rypstat in Iowa, they’ll share their vision of Argentine social tango in a refreshing and unpretentious way.
