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.

Our posture is the starting point of our dance. It sketches out the parameters of movement possibilities, its limitations and efficiencies (or inefficiencies). Posture and balance are intimately connected. In this video, Ivan and Sara share their secrets for posture and balance for a dance without limits.

Articulation & Push

In order to dance we need two major things - energy and direction. Pushing the ground creates energy, and articulating our ankles generates (among other things :)) direction for movement of the body. Learn these principles of movement, and apply them everywhere in your dance! Your movement will be more clear, more controlled and more aesthetic.
