A two hour workshop introducing Argentine Tango. It is for new (never danced Argentine Tango before) or recent beginners (dancing a few weeks/months). Ideal for couples wishing to learn this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.
Whether you want to try Argentine Tango for the first time, or you wish to boost to your basic musicality and technique, this workshop is for you. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before.
It takes two to tango, so this course will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. If you do not have a partner, please book and I will match up single leaders / followers where possible, up to the course limit, and in ‘first come first served’ order.
The workshop will cover as much of the following as time allows.
- Stepping on the beat (paso al compas)
- Marking time (marca el tiempo)
- Embrace and connection (el abrazo)
- Walking (caminata)
- The Run (corrida)
- Front Figure 8’s (ocho adelante)
- Back Figure 8’s (ocho atras)
- Stops (parada)
- Step Over (pasada)
- Adornments (adorno)
- Sandwich (sanguichito)
- Basic Floorcraft
- Basic Musicality
By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing a simple Argentine Tango, using some classic figures, to a traditional tango tune.
