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.

May Series (5/4 - 5/25 2010): Milonga, Vals y Ganchos     

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

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- The Other Dances:

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.

Argentine tango has 3 styles of dances to go with 3 different rhythms: tango, milongo and vals. If you haven't seen these rhythms yet or are uncomfortable with  them, this is the class for you. We will cover the milonga and vals, and learn simple movements which work well with these dances.

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+- Ganchos:

Ganchos are the flashy kicks between your partner's legs to amaze your friends and intimidate your rivals ;o). We will learn to do them safely with everyone in social dancing.
