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 2016):  Giros y Sacadas
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 Turns:

Introduction to all the basic turns in tango. Move smoothly back and forth between turns and walking. 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+ -  Playing With Sacadas II:

Play between your partner's feet, and encourage your partner to play between yours. We'll also look at sacadas in close embrace, and learn how they can be useful on a crowded floor. This month will build on last month, and will focus on sacadas to back steps.
