I  am offering a small Tango workshop  this coming Sunday afternoon, at the request of Julie Tuft, a former Halifax dancer who is visiting from NYC. 
Workshop Topic: Ochos, Pivots, and Posture
Sunday, August 15
3-5 pm (If you need the time changed one hour up or down, let me know – my afternoon is open) 
33 Acorn Rd (AC & wood floor) 
Limit: 6-8 role balanced participants/mixed-level tango social dancers (i.e.attends milongas).
Cost:  $20 per person/$35 per pair. (Cash preferred/etransfer accepted). No CCs.
Student discount available. Women  leads or male follows with some experience  are welcome.
Things we may cover in this workshop:
– changes of direction
– balance & stablilty in frame
– spiralling spines & grapevines
– accessing core support
– working  axis and lean 
Method: I  will lead a warm-up with  technique exercises to do solo or in pairs and then  teach a pattern that embody the specific concepts we’ve just practiced. The material covered in this class will  apply to additional  tango moves, that you either already know or will be learning in the future. They will  work well  on the social dance floor. 
Please inquire about health protocols & guidelines  prior to registering.
Thank you.
