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 (5/2 - 5/30 2017):  Ochos y Boleos
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-  Ochos

These are the crossing steps that are signature tango steps. They are the basis of all the intermediate and advanced moves. 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+ -  Rotational Boleos!!:

Ochos interrupted. Fancy kicks to impress. How do they happen? As follows we'll learn how to give up control of our free leg, as leads we'll learn how to play with it. Spice up your social dancing.
