Learning Switch for Tango!!! A class before Thursday practica ( 12/15)

Dear, All
 

Join us for special class about how to turn on your brains Learning Switch for tango!

Tango is a dance of passion and intimacy. An improvised conversation expressed through the couples connection to each other, their individual and collective connection to the music and their relationship to the floor. Movement is the language of the brain, so how can we use this unique dance to turn on the brains LEARNING SWITCH to improve our dance and life?

We will dance, play and explore how the brain and body grow talent by moving away from “typical” tango technique exercises.
We will discuss the nervous systems involvement for learning and connection.
We will explore expression and listening through partnered work.
…and we will dance in order to notice any changes.

Judah Page is a tango dancer, a devoted student of life, an ISMETA Registered Therapist and Educator and a Certified Brain Health Coach by The Amen Clinics. With her in depth knowledge Judah works to create a fun learning environment where bio-plasticity is fostered to provide life enriching results.

You do not need a partner to take my classes. We switch partners during the class and make sure that everyone gets plenty of dance time.

The classes are taught in a multi-level format so all levels from advanced beginner to advanced dancers are welcomed.

You do not have to pre-register for the class, but it would be great to know who is coming. I could also possibly do a private lesson after the group class.
