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.

June Series (6/7 - 6/28): Close Embrace  

Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- Close Embrace 101:

It's often intimidating to dance in close embrace at the beginning. We'll work at getting comfortable with walking and ochos, and just having fun in close embrace. Perfect for beginners, or for polishing the fundamentals, and warming up for the intermediate class.

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+- Levels of the Cross in Close Embrace:

So you dance in close embrace, but it doesn't feel as amazing as other dancers say it does? We'll review common problems and get it feeling good. Then we'll focus on the art of the cross, and learn all the levels from ocho cortados through volcadas with wraps.

What is my dance level?
