What you'll learn in this tango class:

There are three aspects to the Tango Essentials parallel system series:
  1. How to improvise with traditional tango sequences considered essential for the social dance floor in parallel foot system.
  2. The codes, customs and etiquette of “the milonga” (an Argentine tango social dance).
  3. Tips for becoming part of a caring tango community.
In this course you will learn how to transition from the classroom to the real-life experience of social dancing at the milonga. Questions like “how do I invite someone to dance?” or “what kind of shoes do I need?” all get answered in Tango Essentials. Participation in this series includes a chaperoned field trip to a local milonga with your classmates to support you in making this exciting leap!

Completion of the Tango Initiation curriculum is a prerequisite OR at least 6 months of tango classes taken elsewhere.

Tango Essentials parallel and cross system are non sequential which means they may be taken in either order.
