Description Choreographers Minna Tuovinen and Martin Heslop have been working together since 1991. In 1999 they formed As2wrists Dance Company. Since 2007 they have performed, choreographed and taught extensively in South-America. Their work combines tango and contemporary dance in a unique way called Improtango.

They have also developed a method for teaching improvisation and choreography called creative bodily communication. In 2009 they started an international cultural project called MovesOn. The company has already completed four projects in Ceara, North-Brazil and one project in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. Their latest piece Mango moves on was premiered in Havanna, Cuba in April 2009.
