This class is held on Saturdays from 3:30-4:45 except for our milonga weekends (3rd Saturdays) when they are held from 6:15 - 7:15 ($20 for class and milonga). This is a fun, relaxed class focusing on all the fundamentals of close-embrace Argentine tango. In these classes you will learn the social form of tango danced in the traditional dance halls of Buenos Aires. This is a non-flash style based on a natural walk, focused on improvisation, mutual creativity, and connection with your partner. Anyone beginning tango, wanting to work with the fundamentals and milonga-friendly figures, or anyone wanting to become comfortable with close embrace tango and prepare for dancing in the Milongas (dance events) is welcome. Partners not necessary. If you know of anyone interested in starting tango, forward this on to them! If you are coming for the first time and/or would like more info call Liz at 505-982-5833.
