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.

September Series (9/3-9/24 2013): Playing With The Feet!
Progressive series with Leslie Gordon
Everyone will learn to lead and follow.
  

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals-  Introduction to Playing With The Feet:

Tango gets to play more than any other partner dance. Working with basic steps, we'll learn how to play with the rhythm and the feet to add infinite variety and flavour to your dancing. Perfect to get you out onto the floor tangoing socially. This series is ideal for new dancers (bring your friends), or experienced dancers  working on fundamentals.

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 othe tango basics.

8:00-9:00  Intermediate+ - Swinging the Leg:

The next step to playing is dancing with the free leg. We'll go all the way from ochos without pivots to linear boleos with colgadas: soft delicate moves to big dramatic ones. Perfect for spicing up your social dancing.
