7:30pm – 8:30pm
We believe that one of the most important aspects of learning to dance TANGO in particular, is that you need to become one with the room, your classmates, the music, in a relaxed, and most important, a happy environment.
We believe that relaxed minds and bodies can settle faster on to the dance floor, finding a natural axis hence a more relaxed dance movement in time with the music and in harmony with your partner.
In this class the student will learn the 5 most important components of the TANGO. Eje, Caminadas, Ochos (Back and Forward), Boleos, Giros.
The followers will develop an extra sensitivity to follow as we learn to move exactly like the person you are dancing with, and the leaders will develop a stranger sense of leading because we work on concepts and not steps or figures. The essence of TANGO.
8:30pm – 9:30pm
In this class we focus on becoming a good dancer at the MILONGAS.
Leaders learn to maintain composure throughout the 4 songs in a TANDA so that they don’t run out of steam or steps by the second song.
Leaders learn to not think steps but to flow with the music, to find that mental space where you are MILONGUEANDO. By maintaining this state of mind the leader can dance all night and make all the followers feel confortable and safe in their ABRAZO.
Followers will practice footwork and styling whilst moving in complete harmony with the leader, the followers feet, legs and posture play a big role in the elegant aesthetics of the TANGO.
The best followers in the world are able to move exactly like every leader they dance with by adapting their movement each time, this is called ENTREGARSE.
In this class we practice, musicality on VALS, MILONGA, TANGO and we practice techniques such as SACADAS, BOLEOS, COLGADAS, BARRIDAS and sometimes the odd GANCHO for Fun!
