Got To Move @ NLB (group 1) : Augmented Dance Experience & Better Wellness Through Mindful Tango

Description
FREE Event under National Arts Council

WORKSHOP 1: AUGMENTED DANCE EXPERIENCE (1hr)
(http://info.tangosingapore.com/augmented)

Dancing is fun and good for your health, so why don't we do it more often? Usually the reason is down to lack of time, place and available partners. What if there is an "Augmented Reality" way to help you get dance with people around you, and in any open space nearby? Wouldn't that be fantastic.

This presentation will show you how technology can help to improve the dance experience

Presenter:
- Kace Ong - tango teacher, software developer

Please bring along your mobile phone to test out some of the demonstrations.


WORKSHOP 2: BETTER WELLNESS THROUGH MINDFUL TANGO (1.5hr)
(http://info.tangosingapore.com/wellness)

Tango is a gentle dance that connects the mind to the body, similar to Yoga and Taiji. If you wish to exercise regularly, but find most forms of sports too challenging, come to these sessions to discover how Tango can be a great source of wellness from 8 to 80 years olds.

In mindful tango, less emphasis is placed on couple choreography, and more on the individual's ability to focus, balance, breathe and relax. Practising mindful tango produces similar benefits as meditation and brisk walking.

Presenters:
- Karen Seah - tango teacher and taiji practitioner, arts educator
- Kevin Yap - tango teacher and DJ

This is a hands-on workshop. Please come prepared to exercise, dress in comfortable clothes, and wear walking shoes. No partner is required, and no prior knowledge of any dance is assumed. Please be punctual, latecomers may have their slots given to walk-in's.
