tango libre offers the essence of traditional Argentine Tango while exploring ways in which dancers can get creative through connection, exchange of energy, interpretation of traditional and more modern tango music and subtle use of space.
tango libre is ultimately about communication and connection with your partner and with the music, having fun and being able to adapt the dance to modern and traditional fused music. As Argentine Tango is a free style dance you will learn the concept of a sliding embrace to incorporate beautiful fluid tango movements which are not taught solely in the form of routines but also from the natural progression of where the body wants to go and why! For those of you who are already dancers of tango I explore with you the concepts of active following and generous leading to further enhance your dancing experience.
Emphasis is not only on learning new moves but being able to enhance the moves you already have. It is not a prescribed way of learning or teaching, hence the term "tango libre".
It is about using the available space on the dance floor and truly letting your inner sensibility towards the dance come out.
Tango will nurture and develop the sensuous and creative aspects of yourself, will give you confidence and poise, and provide for you the opportunity to meet new people in a safe and fun environment.
I have had a long tango life.... teaching in Buenos Aires, Sydney and now Nelson and other regions of NZ. I have a proven and fun method of teaching and enjoy imparting my tango knowledge, both in terms of dance and theories on the tango life!
Tango is about loss and possibility. It is fast paced and energetic, slow and meditative. Dancing and living this wonderful tango is addictive....CAUTION!
