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.

January Series (1/2 - 2/27 2024): Crossing Steps and Sacadas

Progressive series with Leslie Gordon

Everyone will learn to lead and follow.

No need to bring partners, we switch regularly.

**No event 1/23 Travelling; No event 1/9

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- Crossed Steps

To pivot, or not to pivot: ochos versus the cross . These are the basic moves that all others are built on. 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+ - Sacadas:

Weak ochos often limit intermediate and advanced moves. We'll work on core and axis techniques, and work on sacadas for both leads and follows
