Tango Foundations

May 12th - June 16th (6-weeks)

Open level; suitable for total beginner's and those with some previous experience.

 

This course includes the class from 1.30-2.30pm and the Practica until 3.30pm. The course material is designed in such a way so that you will greatly benefit if you can stay on and practice after the class. You may also ask help from the teachers during this practice time. Attending this informal Practica will introduce you to the social context of tango so that progressing to the more formal social dances called Milongas will be much easier. You may stay for the full two hours or leave earlier if you need to do so.

Refreshments and light snack are provided through the tafternoon.

During this course you will learn how to achieve correct tango posture and thus create the all important tango connection. Understanding the basics of walking technique will enable you to start enjoying this beautiful dance. This style of tango is best suited to dancing socially using improvisation rather than set routines.

Learning the tango walk will prepare you to understand the basic figures and there variations

Learn to dance Argentine Tango in Glasgow with Sari Lievonen and Jeff Allan

What to expect at beginner level

To learn the tango is like learning a new language. We need some vocabulary and the basics of grammar to understand how this amazing movement language works. When danced socially Argentine Tango is an improvised dance based on walking. We will work with posture, connection and walking technique along with introducing you to the basic steps and step combinations. We do not teach you set routines or sequences. You will learn to be creative while communicating with your partner in expressing the classic era tango music.
