TANGO STRUCTURE / IMPROVISATION & ESSENTIAL FIGURES Part -1
This is a 2 part series course for serious beginners with a good attitude and a thirst for knowledge. If you've dibbled and dabbled in pursuit of Tango and are feeling determined to learn and make a commitment to becoming more confident and prepared for the social dance floor, then this is the course for you.
Completion of "Intro to Tango Level 1" or previous experience with a clear understanding of the Fundamental Elements before taking this course is required.
In this course students will learn how to connect the dots and bring the fundamental elements to life by focusing on basic timing, technique, body alignment and partner connection while combining interchangeable elements to improvise and navigate the social dance floor. New essential concepts and figures will be introduced with a strong focus placed on connection, lead and follow, improvisation, timing and navigation as well as an introduction to the two main systems in Argentine Tango: Parallel and Cross System. In addition, students will be introduced to social dance etiquette (codigos) specific to Argentine Tango preparing them for “Milongas and Practicas” (Social Dances).
WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Leather sole shoes, slim sneakers, loafers or sandals with a strap. Wear comfortable clothes and bring a great attitude!
