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.

November-December Series (11/4-12/16 2014):  
Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.
  

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals-  All About Ochos:

Introduction to tango with walking, ochos and playing with your partner's feet.. This is the perfect starting class. We will get you comfortable with the basics and ready to go out and have fun dancing. Also good for 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+ - Successful Sacadas:

Step between your partner's feet with confidence and style. We will explore the crucial details that separate the successful from the painful, and how the follow enables the better options. We will learn sacadas for both leads and follows and how to chain them in progressive turns.
