Tango is coming to your neighbourhood: inscriptions are open for the new Tango Salon course!
Starting Wednesday 30 October, for 5 weeks
7.00pm – 8.30pm
This course is about Tango, which is a cultural expression from Buenos Aires, famous worldwide as a passionate couple’s dance. Tango Salon can be danced in an open or close embrace. Tango Salon is different from ballroom because it is an improvised, elegant social tango which is danced worldwide in milongas (social dances).
No dance partner is required, so you can come along alone because everyone will move around to practice dancing with each other, although we cannot guarantee an equal mix of genders. We want you to enjoy, get fitter and gain confidence on the dance floor. You will learn how to freely interpret music and get the basic idea of tango dancing and culture. The course will teach you how to enjoy a different kind of couple´s dance; to understand creativity and improvisation as central principles of dancing and to embrace Tango as a whole cultural expression.
