To be able to grow as an individual and to develop into the people we want to be in life we need to be confronted - with our history, our life, with physicality, our relationships, with other people we interact with and with beauty. This method, introduced by Detlef Kappert incorporates techniques of professional training for artists and the teaching of perception in such a way that allows individuals to grow through this psychological concept. The dancers develop knowledge of their personal theme of life and an identity based on their vitality and elegance when dancing, through the course of time. They can achieve their goals of self-fulfillment and express them in a way that others are able to acknowledge them.

Contact Tango in Water provides a safe all encompassing environment where to explore and revitalize a rich variety of movements. Through it, we can develop without fear of injuries, spirals, lifts, rolls or just simple movements related to grounding and walking. On the other hand, the relational dances of Contact Improvisation and Tango when practiced in water, amplify a sensual trust and playfulness, making the learning process easier. Last not least, movement in water allows the experience of flow to get physically impressed in our bodies. Flow is a defining characteristic of a relaxed movement. It can be easily perceived in water in the exchange of centrifugal and centripetal movements. Flow is also achievable thanks to the anti gravitational characteristic of water, allowing a better dialogue between tension and relaxation to take place. Many of these movements, once perceived, experienced and shared in water, are easier to achieve in the studio.
