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.

Introduction to the cross and crossed system. Learn to play with the feet, and never be on the wrong foot again. This series is ideal for new dancers, or experienced dancers working on fundamentals, or the other role.

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+ -  Mastering the Cross:

It's a basic move that can lead to hundreds of variations, from intermediate to very advanced. Explore the richness of the cross, transforming to high crosses, turns, boleos and volcadas on both sides. Follows learn to liberate your free leg, and leads learn to play with it.
