The Flavour of Tango – Argentine Tango Workshop

25/09/2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm –

1.5 hr workshop in Pinner North London introducing Argentine Tango to new / recent beginners. Ideal for couples wishing to learn this beautiful elegant dance.

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.

Due to current issues around transmission and infection of Covid-19 we are operating this workshop cautiously, with the following rules;

  • The course is for couples only, and dancers will stay with the partners they arrive with. The course will be limited to only 4 couples so early booking is advised. If you are a single dancer, please find yourself a partner before booking.
  • Attendees should be able to demonstrate that they have had 2 doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, by bringing your vaccination card, or a letter from the NHS to the first class, please.
  • Attendees can chose to wear masks or not as they wish. It will not be mandatory. The course will be conducted in a room with large sliding doors to the outside world. These will be open for ventilation as much as the weather allows.
  • There will be anti-bacterial gel available on entry to the church hall, and attendees should make use of it.
  • Please do not attend if you suspect you have Covid, flu, or other transmittable infection.

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)
  • 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.

Places are limited (4 couples 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)!

What to bring: Ideally you’ll need shoes (leather soles) which will allow you to turn on one foot, on a smooth floor, clothing to allow free movement, and any refreshments you may wish to consume.
