Class with Lu Ann: "Look Ma! No Hands!"

  • ArtsPlace 161 North Mill Street Lexington, KY, 40507 United States (map)

You guessed it. This class will examine what it takes to create movement in our partner and receive movement from our partner, without using our hands and arms. It’s not magic, but it feels like magic when done well. Even complex patterns can be led and followed in close embrace without the involvement of our hands and arms. Abandon the embrace??? Don’t worry; it’s only temporary.

These “close embrace” classes will focus on creating a more satisfying experience for both the lead and the follow. If you choose to dance in an open embrace outside of these classes, you will find that the skills you develop here will still be of benefit.

We will strive to create a nurturing and forgiving environment that induces a lot of smiling. Laughter will also be encouraged. When we are tense, our body can confuse our partner’s body.

Argentine Tango is a social dance. For that reason, we will rotate partners.
