Argentine Tango is a dance based on walking and improvisation. The music carries you through the movement and you build beautiful relationships with fellow dancers.
Throughout the 9-week course you will work progressively on dancing in couples and enrich this with some study of the music and history of tango.
Each week will bring new movements which, by the end of the course, will mean you can dance with anyone, anywhere and bring the beauty of your tango wherever you go.
We recommend comfortable clothing and shoes without rubber soles, and you are not required to sign up as a pair.
This course is suitable for beginners and up. The tutor will offer adaptations to suit every students individual needs.
No class 21 February.
