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.

April Series (4/5 - 4/26): Crossed System     

Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- Rhythm and Crossed System:

We personalize tango by playing with rhythm and feet. Quicks and pauses add flavour to your dance. Changes of rhythm also let us switch feet since unlike other ballroom dances, tango has no wrong foot. You'll gain the confidence to never be on the wrong foot again! Perfect for beginners, or for polishing the fundamentals, and warming up for the intermediate class.

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+- Mastering Crossed System Moves:

Learn to love the crossed system for all the variation it can add to your dance. We'll start by looking at simple moves changed into crossed system and then explore what is unique to crossed. Special focus will be on moves best done in crossed system such as sweeps.
