What you'll learn in this tango class:

Our goal at the completion of this level is to be able to dance all the figures while continuing forward on the line of dance, in a comfortable embrace, without interfering with the other couples on the floor!

Basic Tango consists of 3 sections, or courses. In all 3 we address comfort, balance, and posture as we practice walking with a partner in the Tango embrace and stepping out the Baldosa Box and the Resolution figure. And in each section we learn a different, major, element of the dance along with variations; Section A is the Cross), Section B is the Forward Ocho (Ochos Atras), and Section C is turns (Giros).

Important Notes: 
  • The sections are not sequential and may be taken in any order that you wish. However, in order to develop the needed vocabulary, as well as a comfortable and functional embrace, all 3 sections should be taken before moving on to Pre-Intermediate.

  • Group session and drop-in sessions available.
