Tuesday Night Tango in Palo Alto

ALERT!!
We are moving to a new location: Little House Activity Center, 800 Middle Ave, Menlo Park. The City of Palo Alto is requiring all tenants of the First Baptist Church to move.
8/15 will be our last event at the First Baptist Church. There will only be  classes (7-9), no milonga. 8/22 we have classes 7-9, but no milonga at our new home, Little House in Menlo Park. Hopefully, the milonga/practica will be back 8/29.


Little House (Ballroom)

800 Middle Ave (Nealon Park)
Menlo Park, CA

Coming from El Camino Real on Middle Ave, drive past the tennis courts, and turn right into the driveway at the end of the park. Drive past the baseball field and turn right into the parking lot.  Little House is at the far end of the parking lot.


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.

August Series (8/1 - 8/29 2017):  All About Music

Everyone will learn to lead and follow.
No need to bring partners, we switch regularly.
  

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals-  Playing With Rhythm 101

How to use rhythms and phrasing to inspire your dancing. Introduction to vals and milonga. 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 Axes in Turns II:

Do you tend to repeat the same movements no matter what the music? Does milonga make you uncomfortable? Learn to connect to the music to inspire your partners. Develop techniques for both leads and follows.
