Regina Hofmanova - 2018
Regina started studying and dancing tango 20 years ago having furthered her experience in Buenos Aires with famous teachers such as Aurora Lubiz and Claudia Bozzo
In this workshop we will explore Argentine tango principles of leading and following, work with personal space, both entering and abandoning it . We will work in pairs for most of the workshop, alternating between partners and roles regularly. Finally, we will develop short sequences applying the principles we will have learned with special focus on musicality. Participants will be asked to bring socks for this practice
