All events will be at Mind Body Studio,
517 Southland Drive, Lexington, KY

Friday, October 4

Class 1: 7:30 – 9pm + 30 minutes questions/practice time.
It is all about “THE” Base ! (movements on axis) A deep understanding of a concept that will undoubtedly make our dance take another dimension.

Saturday, October 5

Class 2: 1 – 2:30pm. Control what you lose (off-axis movements)
A fundamental concept in the management of the axes. When should we keep the axis? At what moments of the dance should one be off-axis?

Class 3: 2:45 – 4:15pm. It is time to shine !
In this workshop we will join the material learned during the previous workshops in a practical and fun way. We will create together different sequences where we can apply the concepts of shared axis, tension by opposition, relaxation, resting axis etc. It is time to have fun and be imaginative, it is time to shine.

MILONGA: 8-11pm with Tate and Karen performance
Time to dance, time to have friendly chats, time to tango!
Water and light refreshments will be provided,
BYOB and you are always welcome to add variety to the table, if you wish 🙂
