We have a 2 week break after 10th October
and then New Look Wednesdays continue from 31st October.
7.30-8.30 Foundation Class This is a drop in class and suitable for beginners including absolute beginners and those wanting to refine their tango. We will cover important technique such as connection, embrace, the all important tango walk, as well different moves so that your tango repertoire developes. Only 5 pounds or 4 pounds concession.
We continue the New format from
8.30-10.00pm. -We are going to alternate each week with a taught class for those that normally come to out Tango Dynamic classes, with a guided Practica. This will give you all a chance to practice your tango and the teachers will be on hand to help you on moves or technique that you want to focus on. The first week of term Mike and Laura will teach and the week after will be a guided practica. The Tango Dynamic class is for those who are confident with ochos, giro, the cross and of course connection, embrace and tango walk. Both classes cost only 6 pounds or 5 pounds concession. (And the practica is only 2 pounds.)
Our classes are taught in a friendly, relaxed environment and you don't need to come with a partner. We focus on the technique of Argentine tango rather than learning set routines or patterns, as Argentine tango is an improvised dance (not to be confused with ballroom tango!). We suggest you wear comfortable non-rubber smooth-soled shoes and comfortable clothing.
