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.

October Series (10/6 - 10/27 2015):  All About Music
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-  Playing with Rhythms 101:

The key to tango and all other dances is using the rhythms and the phrasing to inspire your movement. Great dances come from connection to the music and your partner, not from complicated patterns. After learning basic rhythms, we'll introduce milonga and vals. 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+ -  Mastering Music, Beyond Patterns:

So you know lots of patterns, but are you bored by your dancing? .Do you get uncomfortable with milongas? Do you have to concentrate so much on syncopations that you'd rather avoid them? This class is all about adding variety and enjoyment to your dances, by becoming very comfortable with music. We'll look at what works and what doesn't for different types of music/orchestras, how to punctuate with big moves, and how to play with small ones. Techniques for both leads and follows.

What is my dance level?
