E-Tango and More with Eva Zimet
The Vermont Dance Alliance, in partnership with Inclusive Arts Vermont, Presents: E-Tango and More with Eva Zimet!
Social dancing will return! This series will prepare you for dancing Argentine tango with simple exercises, figures and LOTS of body awareness (think Pilates and Somatic mash-up). No prior tango experience or fancy shoes necessary. Although if requested, I will add an entire 3-week session on walking in heels. Here’s your chance, in the privacy of your own space, to explore reconstructive techniques that will help you move in social dance and life in general, with more grace, comfort and confidence. No partner necessary. Sign up here!
For: Open level, and drop in friendly. Anyone who wants to try moving or watch it happen, get ideas, be inspired, and of course those who love Argentine tango. This class is designed to be accessible for seniors, veterans, survivors of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome, womxn in leadership who want to gain new skills, and queer folx who generally avoid the dance scene due to gender-role expectations.
Eva Zimet is a cross-disciplinary teaching artist. She works 1:1 and with communities, developing connections within and among individuals through improvisation in language, thought and movement. Argentine tango has informed much of her technique. She now lives, writes, draws and teaches in Vermont, and will dance anywhere. Born in New York City, Eva earned an MFA from Columbia University, a JD from Vermont Law School. Her first career was ballet. She is also certified as: mediator, TESOL, yoga and meditation instructor. Her children’s picture book, Lucy Dancer, is infused with the charm of a dancer’s world. Her I-was-there insight invites the audience to share the artist’s point of view, the artist’s experience, and why that makes a performance worth watching. Watch for her new book drop in fall 2020 The Lost Grip, entirely poetry.
