Introduction to Argentine Tango B: Experiencing the Connection & Crosses

Building on the substantial benefit of the fundamentals of tango, this course is focusing on the connection experienced in the open and closed embrace, taking the normal and alternate walks to a new level and introducing the outside walk.  Transitioning between the walks will be key to confidence building on the dancefloor  together with enjoying learning new steps like the essential the placed ocho and la cruzada.  Time for play with the low boleo for embellishment.  Course fee €60 including free practica session at end of course.  Email info@isaldeltango.com for reservations and questions.
