Movement Technique. Body Mechanics

Whenever we think, play or practice, our body has a natural tendency, a habit, an answer. Listening to that voice, to that answer helps. Our dance, our couple, our teaching and our lives are improved every time we find new ways to understand more about our amazing body reactions. Sara and Ivan start their journey with us by showing how to discover and train our body wisdom. Enjoy this beautiful collection and be aware that it’s the base for all their further work on Tangomeet.


Recommended study time for this collection is 5 weeks.
