The Art of Listening: Feldenkrais Method® and the Tango

Experience Tango dance as an Awareness Through Movement® lesson to improve your Listening, Reversibility, Balance, Coordination, Posture, Strength and Relationship.

Learn how magical and transforming walking forwards and backwards, swaying side-to-side, and rocking can be when done to Tango music. Experience moves without music and listen to yourself. Then feel the transformation of doing them with music and how subtly your body responds. With each step, you can strengthen posture, balance, alignment, coordination, and sense of self. Then you dance with a partner. Enjoy the awareness-expanding experience of feeling, creating, listening and responding to music and to a partner. Non-dancers welcome. And a great warm-up for a party!

Donna Giannell experienced her first ballet class aged four. She has since added many different kinds of dance to her repertoire. Teaching and performing was her life even after suffering injuries from a hit-and-run accident. She was dancing in pain until she found the Feldenkrais Method® in 1996. She’s taught ATM® lessons for 16 years at an NYC YMCA, as well as at the 2013 NY Feldenkrais® Conference. She teaches tango to people of all ages and abilities.
