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.
