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 (4/1-4/29 2014):  Turns and Colgadas
Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals-  Ochos and Turns:

The two major building blocks in tango. We'll have you moving back and forth seamlessly, and creating your own patterns. This series is ideal for new dancers (bring your friends), 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+ - Playing with Colgadas:

We'll learn to go off axis and hang with our partners. We'll develop skills to dance colgadas socially, working on techniques for both leads and follows. This is the gateway move to single axis turns (coming in May 2014)
