* WORKSHOP DETAILS *

Veronica Toumonova is back in London. Please make use of this opportunity to come and learn from one of the the very best of teachers of movement techniques!

This workshop will focus on creating and maintaining a great connection between partners and using movement to communicate in the abrazo. Veronica will give you the tools and explain the nuances behind what makes Tango work beautifully between partners.

– Warming up exercises for improved body awareness and releasing unnecessary tension from the upper body
– Find the correct posture alignment and connecting to the floor with balance and strength
– Exploring a more intense connection to one’s partner through movement
– Communication exercises to deepen our sensitivity
– Understanding the notion of “intention”. With the improved sense of connection, we will then improve our tango, making it flowy, sensual, bouncy and relaxed.

Veronica has been dancing tango since 2000 and actively teaching and performing […]
