tangoConnection1Argentine Tango Course…the next steps

Email info@isladeltango.com to reserve your places soonest!

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.

Who:           Those who have already a good introduction to tango fundamentals by following Introduction to Argentine Tango A or otherwise and anyone who wishes to revisit them.

Workshop:   This course will take the format of a workshop. The beauty of the workshop is that we are working together on consecutive days, building from one hour to the next, from one day to the next.  We will maximise what we have learnt by practising in the following week without adding new material so as to let the body understand and absorb the tecnica taught in the workshop.

When:  Friday 24th January:  7.30pm – 9.30pm

Saturday 25th January: 5:00pm – 7:00pm

Sunday 26th January: 5:00pm – 7:00pm

“There is a big difference between dancing in class, dancing socially, and practicing. You cannot get the most out of your dance without all three”.  The class is where you learn these things intellectually. You work out in your mind how the steps work, where your feet go and what your torso does. The practica is where you put this knowledge into your body. When your body remembers it for you, that is when you can reliably and comfortably perform the technique at a milonga, without worrying about whether you did it right. The only way to turn intellectual knowledge into body knowledge is repetition. Practice” Kara Ohlinger.
