TangoForge Biomechancs are a compact toolbox of technical concepts which could be used to explain the constitutive technique in any movement, and resolve any disfunction. There are 5 Biomechanics: Arch of Connection, Intention/Projection, the mechanism and process of Transfer of weight, Power/Co-contraction, and Changes of Embrace.
Our biomechanics courses train dancers to have awareness and control of their bodies so they can execute any movement. We learn the terms of motion for the major joints of the body so that we can communicate instructions in the most clear and direct way possible. We train key muscles with isolation exercises and then learn their correct application in the dance. We use anatomical terminology to precisely specify tango’s unique techniques for building shared balance, communicating direction, and moving as one with the partner.
