Some highlights we will explore:

  • Preparation of the body and use of body weight

  • Connection, communication and active response

  • Creating, maintaining and controlling energy and dynamic

  • Linear and circular colgadas

  • Variations for entering and exiting colgadas

  • Colgadas in combination with other tango elements
