Mastering Tango – The Giro Workshop

Book now to avoid disappointment!

This workshop continues the series of ‘Mastering tango’ workshops. Each workshop can be taken independently.

The circular Giro is one of the classic tango figures and most dancers can perform a basic four step full circle. However there are many more circular turning movements and this workshop covers a number of more complex (and some simpler) varieties.

This is a one and a half hour workshop introducing a number of giros and turning movements, to expand your giro repertoire beyond the basics.

It is for improvers to intermediate level, and is ideal for couples wishing to expand their technique and musicality for this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.

It takes two to tango, so this workshop will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. If you don’t have a partner, please visit my Facebook Page, find this event and post a comment to see if anyone is looking for a partner too.

The workshop will cover as much of the following as time allows

  • Review of basic Giros
  • Changing the Giro Axis point (basic Molinete)
  • Changing the Giro Axis to produce a Promenade
  • Changing the Giro Axis to produce multiple Grapvine half turns
  • The 2 step Giro (single axis turn)

By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing an Argentine Tango, using smooth entry and exits from a variety of Giro and Giro like figures, to a traditional tango tune.

Places are limited (10 people only) so you need to book and pay for your place below to guarantee entry. Please don’t attend without booking (we might be too full to let you in), and please don’t book without attending (you might be blocking a place that someone else could use instead)!

If you miss out on this workshop, don’t worry, we are planning more in the area later in the year, subject to demand.

What to bring: your usual dance shoes, clothing to allow free movement, and any refreshments you may wish to consume.
