A one and a half hour workshop introducing Argentine Tango. It is for new beginners (never danced Argentine Tango before). Ideal for couples wishing to try out this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before.
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 post a comment here to see if anyone is looking for a partner too, or email me (stating if you want to lead [usually the man] or follow [usually the woman]) and I will put you on a reserve list and try match you up with the opposite role.
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)
- Open Box (Baldosa)
- The Rock Turn (Vuelta de Roca)
- The Run (corrida)
- Front Figure 8’s (ocho adelante)
- Stops (parada)
- Step Over (pasada)
- Adornments (adorno)
- Basic Floor-craft
- 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.
