Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango was born in the late 1800's in Buenos Aires, and has been changing and evolving ever since. It is a beautiful dance form that provides endless opportunity for improvisation and playfulness.

October Series (10/1 - 10/29 2019): Ochos and Off-Axis
Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.
No need to bring partners, we switch regularly.
  

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- All About Ochos: 

Introduction to the crossing steps and pivots that are the basis of most moves in tango. This series is ideal for new dancers, or experienced dancers working on fundamentals, or the other role.

8:00-9:00  Fundamentals- Practica

Stay for the practice led by some of the advanced students. We will review the material from the first class, and other tango basics.

8:00-9:00  Intermediate+ - Slightly Off-Axis:

Moving off-axis is a great way to add suspensionss and flavor to your social dancing. Learn what you need to provide as a lead and follow, and how to have fun with it. Key techniques for both leads and follows.
