TangoContactImprov is an improvisation system using means of movement communication  applied in Argentine Tango and Contact Improvisation. Our objective is to improve communication with your partner and within a group, fine tune our intuition and enhance partnering skills.
Every year we also apply additional themes.
What are we focusing on this year?
– Communication and leading with various parts of the body.
– Musicality and conveying it in a couple as well as in a group and the effect it has on individual perception.
