theme: Safe and relaxed tango in confined spaces
Question: How do you help each other relax in a busy milonga?
Shrinking dance floor. Continually reduce allowed floor area during practica.
Avoiding collisions: side steps and turns.
Dancing expressively in minature: small giros, favouring the open side. slow steps, fuller body communication, the richness in comunication is only between the two of you.
Game: take half a song without a single full step, projection and balance changes allowed. Try with different partners.
Game: use line of chairs to make a narrow corridor (could use people if enough) to practice following line of dance. Two couples going through at once. Do ochos and giros along line. Can you do your favourite figure?
Dancing within a circle of people (2 couples to make circle, 1 couple in the middle).
Blind folded tango within protective circle. Practice feeling for safe space.
Go from dancing in small circle back to a 'normal' small floor, compare level of relaxation.
