TANGO 1 – This course is an introduction to the social form of Argentine Tango as danced in Buenos Aires. No previous experience necessary!
You will learn a code of movement that will get you started with this improvised dance. Embrace, posture, connection with your partner, and basic navigation on the dance floor will be emphasized.
We encourage students registered for TANGO 2 and above to join this class, free of charge, to solidify their fundamental technique and gain an understanding of our method of teaching.
Musicality, cultural information and etiquette about Argentine Tango is presented in all class levels.
8:15 – 9:15 pm – TANGO 2
9:15 – 9:30 pm – Mini Práctica
TANGO 2 – While building on material from Tango 1, this class moves deeper into the exciting world of parallel and cross systems, forward and back ochos, and giros y molinetes (turns).
The foundation and technique of these skills will be emphasized then transformed into interesting combinations to use on the dance floor.
Monthly series begins first Wednesday of every month. Discounted packages available.
Classes are held at Alma del Tango Studio at 167 Tunstead Ave. in San Anselmo.
