LEVEL 2 :: DEVELOPING THE FUNDAMENTALS

These classes work in detail to develop and refine a smooth walk, comfort in close embrace, combinations for forward and back cohos, turns with sacadas, ocho cortado, embellishments etc…  As in all of our levels we teach classic sequences as well as musicality and improvisation skills.

LEVEL 3 :: ADVANCED

Designed for experienced dancers with a clear grasp of the fundamentals wanting to build creativity, musicality, elegance and dynamics using elements such as rebounds, boleos, sacadas, barridas, close embrace turns, lapices and enrosques, changes of direction and out of axis movements. We explore advanced musicality, incorporating syncopation and changing dynamics to help students feel more sensitive in the connection and more expressive and confident in the dance. Classes also cover social dance codes and floor craft as this is essential for anyone attending milongas.

TECHNIQUE TRAINING
Tango drills and training in body mechanics, musicality, strengthening and stretching. Exercises for a grounded walk, stable pivots and proper disassociation. Classes are designed to condition the physical body (tone, control, ease of movement, muscle memory) and expand your body awareness (conscious movement, alignment). A friendly space for asking questions and exploring what you need to develop your dance. All individual work – no partner required

Foundation Technique Classes are for both leader and follower roles. We encourage students to do technique training to compliment the partner work. There is a technique component in all of our classes however the primary focus of our partner work is communication and connection. If you are doing individual technique training you will be better prepared for the partner work. Wear comfortable clothes and bring dance shoes as well as socks. Classes are 50 minutes.
