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.

Nov-Dec Series (11/9 - 12/14 2010): All About Close Embrace 

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

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

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.

Close is a standard embrace for Argentine tango. Many people feel uncomfortable in this embrace since they aren't used to getting this close to a partner. We will work on the basics of close embrace, and get you comfortable with walking, ochos and simple turns in this embrace. At the end of the series, you will be ready to dance socially in this embrace, and have fun doing it.

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+- Mastering Close Embrace:

So you dance close embrace, but it doesn't feel as incredible as other dancers say it does? We'll review the common problems and pitfalls, develop the connection that makes close embrace wonderful, and then learn some of the great moves only possible in close embrace..

What is my dance level?
