INTRODUCTION TO TANGO 4 week course
Argentine Tango is one of the most romantic and intimate dances, demanding a close connection between partners.
All movements are led by men and women have to follow with their sensitivity and awareness of her leader's energy.
When you learn with us, you will discover that you don’t need to memorize any choreography. In tango, people can dance with a stranger and feel perfect connection if they can lead and follow well. That’s why Tango is said to be a 3-mins love affair when you dance with all your heart.
In this introduction course, the foundation elements of Argentine Tango will be taught, such as the Basic Steps, Cross, Ocho and Parada among others. And we will focus on some core techniques as well, like walking, and framing techniques in leading and following. In addition, we will also do demonstrations to different kinds of music, like Vals, milonga(fast Tango music), Nuevo Tango music and also traditional Tango music. After this course, students should be able to start dancing in milongas (Tango parties) and know more about different kinds of the dance and music.
