Tango Fundamentals for Beginners (Beginners Class):
By the end of this six week course, new participants will be able to move effectively around the dance floor using basic figures, walking combinations and turns. They will develop key leading and following skills and understand the nature of the embrace and connection between the couple. This course is suitable for people with no tango experience. Miguel and Michelle incorporate humour and metaphors to make the classes fun and accessible to all learners.
This course is also highly recommended for tango dancers who want to practice and deepen their understanding of the fundamentals of tango from a structural (as opposed to a figure-based) perspective. This perspective will expand your tango possibilities and provides the foundation for improvisation. It is also a perfect opportunity to learn the opposite role.
Enhance your strong tango foundation through the methodical study of tango structure, turns and elements (such as sacadas, ganchos, barridas, to name a few) combined to form simple and complex figures. With personal attention and clear and accessible explanations, Miguel and Michelle help you to expand your comfort zone and grow as a leader or a follower. Learn exercises to improve your technique, as well as your leading and following skills. These classes require previous tango experience (e.g. Tango Fundamentals I and II or other relevant experience).
