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 (8/5-8/26 2014):  Ochos and Ganchos II
Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.

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

These are the two main 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 Ganchos II:

Start playing between your partner's legs. These are fun flashy kicks, that also work well in social dancing. We will learn ganchos for both leads and follows, building on the moves learned in July.
