8 episodes

We met once face to face, with no distance or fear. We embraced the music and each other. Dancing showed the way to open our hearts and start a conversation.
When all dance floors were closed in 2020, we founded Dance in Conversation to keep our connections and discussions about tango going.
So, we started dancing with stories, talking with rhythm, and we began to embrace communication in all its forms.
This podcast is where life and tango are one. It’s yet another way to honour that goal of connecting and be together.
We are Sergio Acosta, a writer and a tango lover, and Ieva Kelpsaite, a tango dancer and relationship coach. 
We hope you enjoy it.

    Special episode: The best for 2022 from and for the tango community

    Special episode: The best for 2022 from and for the tango community

    To welcome the new year I invited several people from the tango community to record themselves and share one highlight from 2021 and one hope for the coming year.
    Because I sent the invitation just before Christmas I had very little hope that I would get any response. Some of you actually expressed that you wouldn’t be able to do it. Even Ieva, my creative partner, was so much involved already with her family in London.
    But, to my surprise, six dear friends who have been participating in various Dance in Conversation events sent their videos. It was moving to hear their voices and messages.
    So here we are, all together, expressing our longings and our best wishes for 2022.
    Happy New Year!

    Modelling a caring dialogue

    Modelling a caring dialogue

    In this episode, Ieva Kelpsaite and Sergio Acosta practised a framework for conversations that enables a space of safety and mutual appreciation and understanding.
    It is a model that sounds simple but it can be challenging due to our past, traumas, education, and all the conditioning that has a huge impact on the way we see and express ourselves today. It is a framework, nonetheless, that can be used and practised to lead sensitive conversations with your partner, your teams, and even in your communities.
    This approach is a way of expressing feelings, listening, acknowledging, and empathize fully. It's a caring dialogue.
    Thank you for listening.

    Presence

    Presence

    We are moved by the words expressed by members of the tango community who have found in our events space for deep presence and connection.
    "There is a rhythm in the flow that's come out of your groups, which is fascinating", Patricia Nunn, tango teacher and psychotherapist.
    "We are starved for connection, communication... and a talk like this... you kind of want to hold onto it", Veronica Toumanova, tango teacher.
    "It's been wonderful... to be able to reflect, analyze and make contact with other people", Madeline Lees, community leader.
    "I feel like the depth's brought to the surface. These conversations are so inspiring", Alla Petcheniouk, tango dancer.
    Thank you.

    Beyond the surface

    Beyond the surface

    Tango offers a model that could allow us to change problematic dynamics in our relationships. In tango we learn to be present, move with energy and connect at levels beyond what’s on the surface.
    This is a conversation that started with tension and bad posture and how our body speaks more eloquently than we think. Tango, of course, was again a magnifying glass for us to see a bit more clearly what prevents us from having genuine communication with our partner.
    This is the subject we’ll be exploring in-depth in the course “Beyond the surface. Tango and the Art of Communication that brings us closer”.

    Veronica Toumanova: Love is not enough

    Veronica Toumanova: Love is not enough

    With enormous clarity, the writer and tango teacher Veronica Toumanova dives deep into the challenges of practising tango with a partner.
    Whether your tango partner is a friend or the love of your life, some rules are essential to make it work. Veronica took our hand and led us to new insights about those complex relationships that occur on the dance floor.
    If you feel inspired by this conversation the same way we did, you can go further and subscribe to our workshop:
    Tango and the Art of Communication that Brings Us Closer
    In this training, we will use tango as a model to take our relationships to the next level.
