Tuesday Night Tango in Palo Alto

We are moving to a new location. The City of Palo Alto is requiring all tenants of the First Baptist Church to move.
8/29 we will be back at the First Baptist Church. There will only be  classes (7-9), no milonga. We will probably be at Etz Chayim shortly. Stay tuned.

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
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-  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.
