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 (4/6 - 4/27 2010): Crosses and Boleos     

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

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- The Cross and Crossed System:

Have you always wanted to try tango, but never had  the time, or maybe you have some experience, but would like to try the other role, or just work on the fundamentals to help your more advanced mores? This class will work on those tango fundamentals, teaching you how to survive on the dance floor and have fun doing it.

These are standard elegant variations in tango which are "wrong" in other ballroom dances. Learn ways to play with your partner and the music and never be on the wrong foot again.

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+- Boleos:

Good boleos are the natural result of connection, loose leg and timing. We will develop the necessary skills for both lead and follow, and learn "with" and "contra" boleos from ochos and turns.
