The Flavour of Tango – Argentine Tango Workshop
A one and a half hour workshop introducing Argentine Tango. It is for new beginners (never danced Argentine Tango before). Ideal for couples wishing to try out this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before.
It takes two to tango, so this workshop will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. If you don’t have a partner, please email me (stating if you want to lead [usually the man] or follow [usually the woman]) and I will put you on a reserve list and try match you up with the opposite role.
By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing a simple Argentine Tango, using some classic figures, to a traditional tango tune.
Places are limited (10 people only) so you need to book and pay for your place to guarantee entry. Please don’t attend without booking (we might be too full to let you in), and please don’t book without attending (you might be blocking a place that someone else could use instead)!
What to bring: Ideally you’ll need shoes (leather soles) which will allow you to turn on one foot, on a smooth floor, clothing to allow free movement, and any refreshments you may wish to consume.
The workshop will cover as much of the following as time allows.
Stepping on the beat (paso al compas) Marking time (marca el tiempo) Embrace and connection (el abrazo) Walking (caminata) Open Box (Baldosa) The Rock Turn (Vuelta de Roca) The Run (corrida) Front Figure 8’s (ocho adelante) Stops (parada) Step Over (pasada) Adornments (adorno) Basic Floor-craft Basic Musicality
