Connect With Tango Workshop - Co-taught with Luis Garza & Devi Pride

February 10-12 2017

Hosted at The Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz, CA

Tango will inspire us to use our minds and bodies differently, exploring how you lead and follow, dynamics of connection and the challenge of learning new skills together. Tango is an energy-centered dance in which we can learn about subtle shifts and points of contact and expression. Work with non-verbal communication and physical closeness. Breath together, move together, and laugh. No dance experience required.

About Luis Garza & Devi Pride : Luis has 34 years of technical dance training as well as 8 years of martial arts training. Using his background in both art forms Luis excels in explaining dance in a way that anyone can understand. He has danced Argentine Tango for over 10 years and has taught for 6 years. Devi has danced her entire life, performing solo in Toronto Canada as well as being a part of dance troupes doing South African Gumboot, Stepping, Hip Hop as well as dancing Modern and Jazz and Tap. Devi found a new life in the world of social dancing, first with Salsa and then Argentine Tango 8 years ago. Together Luis and Devi host a weekly Tango event at the Tannery World Dance and Cultural Center in Santa Cruz.
