This all-levels course will focus on foundations of social tango including embrace, connection, and walking. We will learn several common social figures, including variations and musicality. This program is open to those brand new to Tango and also to the experienced Tango dancer who wants to improve and polish their dance. Each class is 1 hour, followed by the Monday Milonga (a tango social). You may practice or just dance during the social. Use the time however best fits your needs. Instructors are available for feedback during this time. No pre-registration required, just show up!
Class $15 ($10 for college students) and includes the Milonga social.
What should I expect at the classes?
-Social Argentine Tango. If you are wanting to dance international ballroom, North American, Fantasia, or other styles, this is probably not the school for you. Although we don’t focus on any one specific style of Argentine tango, we work mostly with Milonguero and Salon styles. We typically dance in close embrace, but ultimately the embrace is negotiated by what each dancer is comfortable with.
-Awesome traditional tango music from the 1920s-1950s. We do not play Nuevo or Alternative music in classes, practicas, or milongas.
-Our classes will be fun and safe. We teach and enforce general tango etiquette. We reserve the right to eject students from the classes and practices if they are causing harm to anyone. This is for the safety and enjoyment of everyone. We also encourage everyone to speak up for their own comfort and safety.
-Everyone is welcome to dance any role they like. We welcome and encourage men as followers, women as leaders, non-binary dancers, and any combination in between. Tango is for everyone. It is 2019 after all!
