Argentine tango is all about simple yet sensual walking, ideal for working on balance, non-verbal communication, and musical expression. This class is geared for new dancers and anyone who wants to get moving in a new and beautiful style. As a partner dance, there are specific leader and follower roles, so we strongly encourage leaders to attend (bring your husbands and guy-friends)! If we don’t get enough “leaders” we will not be able to offer the class.
We will use an open embrace and begin with basic walking and leading (and a few flourishes for followers), then we will learn an 8-step sequence (the “ocho”), and parallel and cross positions for the more advanced. We’ll focus heavily on musicality and how to play and improvise.
Attire: Comfy, breathable clothes, no outdoor footwear. Shoes should be soft-soled and clean
Etiquette: Please be prepared to share dance partners and avoid any scents.
