with Tate & Karen

SEP 14-18 2017


Each Day there will be a class to improve your “QUALITY OF DANCING”

Tate and Karen believe in QUALITY! They want to help you find a deeper, more rewarding dance. It’s not about how many tricks you can do, but “HOW’ you execute the movements! You can enjoy more the dance you already have through improving connection, finding a more comfortable embrace, a smooth and connected walk with better communication and cooperation while dancing. Tools and exercises to catalyze your dance to a new level!

Thursday Sept 14
7-9pm Class and practica at The DeRail Zone (717 Winona Street)
“QUALITY in the Embrace”
Let’s look closely at “HOW” you are embracing your partner. We all want to feel good inside the embrace. Isn’t that a big part of why we dance? Find the best embrace possible, while maintaining connection and communication. Work with us on this most fundamental part of the dance.

Friday Sept 15
8p-12a Class and House Milonga at Juan Luis & Sodeya's House (PM for address)
“QUALITY as you Walk” 
No matter if you are dancing Fresedo or D’Arienzo, walk with intention, bringing to life the music through every step. Refining mechanics and exploring “HOW” we walk as we express the music with our partner. Tips that will help you feel more confident and connected as you move together.

Saturday Sept 16
2 Classes and Practica at The DeRail Zone (717 Winona Street)
4-5:30p “QUALITY in the Pivot”
Technique Time!....using torsion to pivot with tension and release, we amp up your pivots! Create effortless pivots by closely examining “HOW” you are using your bodies to invite a pivot. Timing, relative position and body mechanics.
6-7:30p “QUALITY in your Turns”
Turns are the heart of the dance. Many other movements reside inside the turn. Let’s take a close look at “HOW” we make a turn. Deconstruction of the turn will allow us to explore each part more deeply to understand more and improve the feeling we experience in our turns. Clear invitation, active following, maintaining connection.

7:30-8p PRACTICA

“Dancing the Melody” 
Many dancers easily hear the rhythmic elements in the music and tend to dance on the rhythm. Can you hear the melody? Create more interesting moments in your dance. Tips and exercises to help identify and dance more in the melody. Take on a new perspective of your favorite music, you'll love it even more!
