LEHRER | TEACHERS
Manuela Blanchard (CH), Watsu® and WasserTanzen® practitioner, has been teaching Contact Improvisation and New Dance since 2005 and regularly in international Contact and Dance festivals since 2009. Her enthusiasm for organic expressive movement qualities led her to Butoh, Authentic Movement, Body Mind Centering and Tango. With Contact Improvisation in water she has developed her own aquatic movement language. She likes to explore the boundaries of different disciplines (Contact & Tango/Waterwork/Tantra, for example) to enrich them, to get new inspirations and to pass them on. Her teaching supports that everyone can connect with that which leads them into aliveness, authenticity, presence and openness.
FROM CONTACT TO CONTANGO –
The play with gravity and a sensitive perception during the exchange of weight form the secure basis to develop a clearer feeling for the shared axis. When partners „tune in“ and find a good mix of relaxation and uprightness, mobility and stability, leading and following becomes an enjoyable dialogue, a permeable communication with much mindfulness and full of surprise.
The interplay of balance and counterbalance creates a lively dynamic. Every now and then „small lifts“ emerge from the shared flow rather than from intention. Developing a subtle quality of touch and the art of inviting rather than manipulating are other tools that help make the dance feel juicy and respectful.
These Contact Impro classes are a contribution to bringing momentum, suspension and play into ContactTango.

FROM TANGO TO CONTANGO
Contango is a dance fusion which is inspired by the principles of Contact Improvisation and Argentine Tango. We let ourselves be moved by the rhythms, melodies and energy of the tango with passion and sensitivity. By getting in touch with yourself and the people around you, playful encounters arise. We explore our creativity and open ourselves to new impulses that can enrich our dance. You don’t need any prior knowledge. The sense of movement is sufficient. The rest we will explore together. Let yourself be taken on a journey of discovery to even more dancing pleasure.
