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 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.
