Tango and QiGong – the ideal combination!
Tango is a most beautiful dance, but it is not easy to learn.
Of course, there is posture and balance, skills and techniques, rhythm and musicality to be considered. But the most important, and the most challenging aspect of learning to master “el tango” is that of connection – with the person you are dancing AND with yourself.
If there is connection, both partners can effortlessly and blissfully flow with the music , “leading” and “following” becomes indistinguishable.
QiGong practice or taiji practice have a lot to offer to those who wish to learn or improve their Tango.
QiGong strengthens posture and balance, teaches you how to stay in your axis and dissociate from the waist with ease, regulates breathing, builds proprioception, improves the smoothness of movement, helps to explore the ebbing and flowing of rhythm – not rushing ahead, not hanging behind – how to move with and lead from intention, and most importantly, it teaches you CONNECTION, and how to engage with your own and your partners energy in close embrace.
