Notes

  • Experienced dancers have an opportunity to learn their opposite role in a systematic way.
  • Both followers and leaders experience equal attention to their role and to the complete dancer.
  • We encourage and teach partners how to give each other feedback and help in a supportive way.
  • We find that the richness of the material encourages close attention to instruction and practice work, without demands from the teacher.
  • The first class, Ingredients, pays attention not only to movement mastery, but also to options for entering and exiting, as well as modifying it. This lets novices focus on essentials, while experienced dancers expand their awareness of creative possibilities. Tuesdays 7:30-8:30 p.m.
  • The second class, Recipes, goes deep into dancer principles to successfully blend individual ingredients into a visually appealing product with a great feel. Tasty! Tuesdays 8:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Recommended: make your own notes after class.
  • Recommended: use the practice time Wednesday 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Tango Tribe (and/or other Austin prácticas).
