Class Descriptions
and Details


Tango I & II

     This class is temporarily cancelled until September. However we do have a class on August 18th from 6:15 - 7:15 just before the milonga. We also, have a workshop, "Essentials to close embrace tango" on August 19th from 1 - 4:30. For additional work, students are doing private and semi-private work. Call if you would like to book time or have any questions or would like to sign up for our newsletter!
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.

"Essentials to Close Embrace" Workshops
   Sunday, August 19th. These days are for those beginning and for all those wanting to focus on the essentials of close embrace tango. Wanting better balance and connection with your partner? Wanting time to focus on control and better communication? Having difficulty with challenging positions (outside partner, turns, etc) in close embrace? These days are set up to go deep and address the basics, so that the rest is made easy!
Tango III

Thursday evenings, 7 - 8:30. We are running these classes throughout the Summer!
This class is designed for those already comfortable with close embrace dancing. We will be focusing on intermediate/advanced level vocabulary with a concentration on musical participation and connection with our partners, creativity, relaxation, and internal energetics. This class is about enriching and enlivening your dance from the inside out. $90/6-weeks or $18/1.5 hr class. If you have not attended this class before, please call me to make sure that this is a good fit for you and the class. If you have attended before and plan to attend, please reply to this email to register or call Liz at 982-5833.

Vals/Milonga Intensives

   August 25th - 2 - 5:30. These are one day Intensives on close-embrace Vals and Milonga (both Lisa & Traspie). Two classes from 2 - 5:30.  These Intensives are aimed to build skills and confidence with both Milonga Lisa (single timed) and Traspie (double timed). Liz and Bob Bern will be teaching these classes. $50/day.

Women Leaders Workshops:

     These fun workshops are designed for women wanting to learn to lead. We will be role-reversing and working on what feels best for both leaders and followers. Open to all levels, this class focuses on deep basics: connection, posture, stability, expression, and figures for a social dance floor. 2 classes + practica on Saturday and 2 classes on Sunday. We usually go out for dinner on Saturday night. $125
Follower's Technique:

We focus on building technical skills to increase balance, stability, and beauty, as well as exploring internal dynamics to maximize your dance. If you are wanting to work on follower's technique, please email me. Will will run a class as soon as we have a full group.


Private classes:

We also teach private classes. One-on-one work is a nice way to focus in depth on a particular issue or simply a way of accelerating your learning. Classes are scheduled at flexible times. Feel free to call Liz at 505-699-0106 for any questions.
