The Magic of Tango – Dancing in the Milongas
Foundation and Beyond the Basics Classes to get you dancing “Buenos Aires” Style
What is Tango?
Tango is a social, improvised couple dance;
Tango is invitation and acceptance – it takes two to Tango;
Tango is sharing and caring;
Tango is an intense, emotional, introverted silent conversation;
Tango is dancing a feeling;
Tango is not a Latin dance, or static, like club or rock & roll – it is essentially a circular dance;
Tango music is varied and complex;
Tango is social, a place where anyone can come together to meet, greet and dance with friends.
Tango is addictive.
Tango takes time. It is not “fast food”. It comes from a gentler age, where you can take the time and space to enjoy the moment, the company and the journey.
What do we Teach
We concentrate on technique and feeling, rather than sequences.
We use sequences to demonstrate possibilities, but don’t expect them to be the same each time.
We emphasise the invite / accept conversation, connection with your partner, everyone in the room, and the music;
We will help you find your dance, responding to your partner, the music, the room and the vibe. (It’s a lot like learning your sport – practicing the technique and possibilities, but, once the game is on, responding in the moment).
You will Learn
The fundamentals of social Tango, dancing comfortably in a close embrace with your partner, on a busy dance floor;
The secret of the Tango “silent conversation” between two bodies, equally sharing, giving and taking time and space;
The variety and special beauty of Tango music for dancing;
The codes and history of Tango that lets you walk into any Tango milonga in the world.
WE prefer you to book as a couple or with a partner, but it’s not essential. The main reason is, we really don’t want people waiting during the class and we are determined to attract more men to Tango (many love it after they start)
What is Buenos Aires Style?
Buenos Aires City Style Tango is a simple, gentle, but intense, emotional dance that concentrates on the connection and communication between dance partners and the all-important music. It was distilled in the packed dance halls of the 1930s and 1940s. It is a silent language; a conversation without words. It is different from stage and demonstration styles in that it is a gentle dance with no “show” elements for an audience.
