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.

March Series (3/5 - 3/26 2024): Turns

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- Turns

Introduction to all the basic turns in tango. Learn to move easily in and out of turns as you dance around the floor. 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 in Turns:

We'll work on sacadas for both leads and follows in turns. Use sacadas to improve turns, and chain them in a relaxed and comfortable way.
