MORE ABOUT THE SERIES
This is a fun, no-pressure class on the fundamentals of Argentine Tango for social dancing. We start each class with the basics of walking and embrace to get everyone off to a solid start with this beautiful walking dance and then move into our theme/topic of the month.
Each week, we will review what we covered the week prior before moving on to new concepts and material – so you will have plenty of time to practice and ask questions each week.
We recommend taking a full month-long series, but missing a class is cool too. We can catch you up during the review.
During the practice hour after class, experienced dancers are on hand class for questions, to help you practice or just enjoy dancing.
WE ARE a community of queer, trans, non-binary and unicorn dancers, and all kindred humans are welcome to join us.
