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 (6/1 - 6/29 2010): Pivots, Ochos and Sacadas     

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

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- Pivots and Ochos:

Have you always wanted to try tango, but never had  the time, or maybe you have some experience, but would like to try the other role, or just work on the fundamentals to help your more advanced mores? This class will work on those tango fundamentals, teaching you how to survive on the dance floor and have fun doing it.

Everything in tango is built on walking and ochos. In June, we will work on pivots to build forwards and backwards ochos, and pasadas. Gain the confidence to have fun with these basic steps.

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+- Sacadas:

Sacadas are the steps between your partner's legs. They were originally developed to use up less space on a crowded dance floor by taking your partner's place. They can be done in both open and close embrace. We will learn to do both lead and follow sacadas safely, with everyone in social dancing.
