In this 6-week series, our instructors will build on the vocabulary
taught in the Beginner I and II Series and more challenging
elements/concepts of tango will be introduced. All the new pieces of
tango vocabulary will be taught with an emphasis on proper technique
and how to reassemble them into new combinations using vocabulary
learned; for example, turn into ochos, ochos into cross, and
others. As always, connection, rhythm, musicality, and navigation will
Students are encouraged to stay after the lesson and dance with the
intermediate and advanced dancers during the practica (typically from
9:30-11:30pm). Practica has a more informal and less intimidating
atmosphere than the milonga. This is a good opportunity to work on
your dance skills and get/give help from/to others. Dancing with more
people will help improve your dancing much faster than dancing with
the same person.
It is expected that the students of this class attend the milongas
periodically or on regular basis to apply what has been learned in the
class in the milonga setting.
Special requirement: comfortable leather-soled shoes (they don't have
to be tango shoes).
