Leader's Technique Workshops

Saturday 1 December -  2.30pm

Location Kingsford (address supplied on booking)
These workshops are offered as small group lessons with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 participants. This allows for plenty of one to one instruction and adjustment. It's the next best thing to a private lesson!

Sophia de Lautour (Alvarez), a national champion who has been teaching tango for over 17 years.

Content and Approach
This is not a cookie-cutter approach. At the beginning of the workshop Sophia one song with each participant. She will then tailor the workshop to suit the particular needs of each participant and the group as a whole, covering aspects of any of the following:

* Walking technique
* Postural alignment and integrity - dissociation and isolation
* The lead / follow / lead dynamic
* Leading linear, zig zag and circular movements
* Turning
* Rebounds
* Musicality
* How finding stillness in movement is essential to good leading - and how to do that
* The right attitude and mindset for leading
All workshops will also include an experiential understanding from a follower's perspective of the structure and subtleties of at least one move (e.g. Cross, Ochos, Giros). Paradoxically, experiencing the follower role is one of the best ways to finesse one's leading skills and it's a great way to improve one's balance and agility!
Ranging from 1 - 2 hours
1 - 2 participants -  1 hour
3 - 4 participants -  2 hours
