"The Path to Tango"
Start any time
This class covers the fundamental concepts of Argentine Tango — walking, posture, embrace and connection — in a relaxed, supportive environment. We will also cover variations of the balosa box, cruzada, ochos, giro, ocho cortado.
Friendly & Fun Atmosphere
No dance partner needed
No previous dance experience required
Personal attention and guidance
"Tango Fundamentals" will also prepare you to handle the Wed night intermediate classes. Some tangueros take the fundamentals class frequently to improve their basics to become more confident on the tango dance floor.
For the experienced tango dancer
You should have a working knowledge of the cruzada, ochos, and molinete. We typically cover a different theme each month such as: ganchos, boleos, volcadas, colgadas, caminatas, sacadas, soltadas and much more.
As you gain experience in your Tango, you will also develop skills in Vals and Milonga.
