Tango Fundamentals 1 takes you from your very first steps in tango to being competent in simple step combinations such as the ocho cortado, the forward and backward ocho and the cross step.
We assume no dance knowledge whatsoever for this course. At the same time as showing you steps we continually work to develop your tango posture and the quality of your connection with your partner.
By the end of the 6 weeks we will have covered:
The moves are taught sequentially, but every step involves skills from other weeks and a continuing focus on posture and technique.
Tango Fundamentals 2 is for recent beginners and is designed to prepare you to dance socially.
We revise the steps from Fundamentals 1 and build on them each week, refining technique and fluency and adding new steps and variations, including the giro, the parada and walking in the cross system.
We spend one class on tango vals (waltz) music, and one class on an introduction to milonga music. We also introduce close embrace and elements of tango etiquette such as good floorcraft, using the cabaceo, and the leader's cabaceo.
By the end of Fundamentals 2 you will have been introduced to:
At the end of Fundamentals 2, we invite you to join us in a visit to a local milonga.
In Tango Improvers we increase the complexity of the steps and put more emphasis on technique, musicality and floorcraft. If you are familiar with the moves and concepts we teach in the two Tango Fundamentals courses then you are welcome to join our Improvers course.
In the Improvers classes we will show the moves in open embrace, give you a chance to practice, then show you how to adapt for close embrace.
In the intermediate class we teach a different combination of steps each week. They are designed to be useful for you in social dancing at milongas, and also to develop your balance, posture and technique.
You can sign up for a 6 week block, or drop in to the class or practica.
