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.

February Series (2/7 - 2/28 2017):  Giros y Colgadas
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-  Giros (Turns):

Introduction to all the turns in tango. Learn to easily move around the dance floor, and different entrances and exits. 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 Colgadas:

Going of axis, and hanging with your partner. Colgadas link wonderfully with sweeps from last month, and are the gateway move to single axis turns.
