Tango Bootcamp 9-12 June ’22
Come join us for this intensive four evenings of Argentine Tango. No partner or previous experience necessary. If you have been to past immersions, remember, every year we teach different movements, so you can still learn new skills!
Experience the Tango, and experience a wonderful addition to your life.
Tango is one of the most interesting and intriguing dances, with relatively easy physical movements that are mentally stimulating. Tango is also alluring because of the skill, the Zen aspects, the communication with the partner, and the chance to pull from other dance experience. Dancers learn through Tango how to truly communicate through social dance, because Tango allows the most improvisational choice of any of the social dances yet created.
We will ramp up your tango skills in each session. You will learn Boleos, Sacadas, Volcadas, the Tango-Waltz, leading, following, communicating, social skills, etiquette, and more, and you will learn what those words mean! By the end, you will skills to enjoy the tango experience, and you will have an opportunity to try them out at a short “Milonga”, or social dance. You will also make a lot of dance friends.
