W E L C O M E to join

Contact Tango offers a space to DEVELOP our own movement through the dance forms of contact improvisation and tango. In a PLAYFUL dialogue between structure, freedom, fluidity, grounding and levity we will EXPAND our physical awareness and CREATIVITY in contact with the other.

The workshop is OPEN to ALL levels and to anyone CURIOUS in widening their movement repertoire. Particularly this workshop supports:
- contact improvisation dancers to enjoy a deeper connection to their own inner rhythm and imagination through their emotional awareness and its creative forms of expression
- tango dancers to achieve a joyful physicality through building complicity with their partner and developing their grounding;

Elements of bio mechanics, martial arts, physical theatre, bioenergetics and ecological principles will support our newly developed expressivity.
Please bring comfortable clothes, shoes and/or socks. No need to have previous experience neither to come in couples.
