Argentine Tango for the Rest of Us

TangoForget all that you have seen of tango on TV or in the movies! Argentine Tango is about two people in a respectful embrace, walking and turning to nostalgic, haunting tango music. Tango is an art form. It encourages you to take beautiful movements that form a complete dance, while all the time making you conscious of your dance partner and the coordination of lead/follow between the two of you. Unlike ballroom tango, Argentine tango is a completely improvised dance based on a simple, learnable structure. While certain sequences will be taught as illustrative of possibilities available to you, you will be taught the basic language and how to form your own movements in it. Imagine describing to your friends how you have learned an elegant dance with roots in South America, one that enjoys a world-wide passion and following. But consider yourself warned: Argentine tango is highly addictive!
