WHAT IS A PRACTICA?
Practicas are a less formal way of learning and practising Tango. They allow time for coaching, instruction and dance practise. The music is sometimes arranged in tandas and the dancing is usually done strictly in ronda rotation so it is almost like a Milonga and is sometimes called a Practilonga. Teachers are available to help with questions and instruction.
Everyone is welcome to the practicas irrespective of their level of experience. It is an opportunity to dance with other dancers. Also to gain more confidence on the dance floor and to experience the different types of tango music. Unlike a milonga, you can stop and discuss your dancing.
DATES THAT YOU CAN'T DANCE AT THE RED LION
COLCHESTER TANGO on Thursday's at The red lion in Manningtreehe
Sadly there are a few dates that we can't use The Red Lion.
They are: 24th October and 21st November
1. Physical Exercise
• Tango is good for cardiovascular health. • Tango increases mobility, balance, stride length and core strength.
2. Social Satisfaction
• Interaction with people with similar interests.
3. Spirituality and mindfulness
• Tango induces a state of flow and spirituality. • Mindfulness is improved. Dancers must focus on the present task at hand. There is no time to ruminate about other issues or problems that may be troubling them at the present.
• Specific cognitive skills may be improved. The ability to do two things at once, such as navigating in a space and being in synchrony with your partner. Dance appears to be an effective exercise to counteract dementia.
• Purposefulness of Tango. Dancers not only want to learn the steps, but execute them gracefully and to be in synchrony with their partner. They often express a specific purpose for doing tango. They want to challenge themselves to do something new. They want to have fun and to meet new people.
• Tango is goal directed. Anyone who engages in a tango class generally has a specific goal in mind. It might be for social interactions, the ability to dance the tango at a wedding, a trip to Argentina, etc.
6. Emotional and Educational Health
• Tango provides an avenue for learning new skills. Emotional responses are facilitated by tango music and enhanced by dancing. For more information on this topic see: www.todotango.com
