What is amazing about Tango?
Men find Tango to be one of the most interesting dances to learn with easy physical movements that are mentally stimulating. Leaders learn through Tango how to truly lead social dance and how to improvise!
Women find Tango alluring because of the skill, the Zen involved, the partner communication and the chance to pull from other experience. Tango teaches focused communication between partners.
Experience the Tango,
and experience a wonderful addition to your life.
You never know where it may take you!
We will slowly ramp up your tango skills each night. You will learn basics such as Boleos, Sacadas, Volcadas, rhythms such as Tango-Waltz, leading and following (throughout), social skills, etiquette, and more. You will also learn what those words mean! By the end, you will have developed skills that will enable you to function socially on a tango floor, and you will have an opportunity to try them out at a “Milonga”, or social dance. You will make a lot of dance friends while doing so.
