ARGENTINE TANGO – Six Week Session with Phil Jones

Our six week Tango Fundamentals Program is for the beginner dancer and offered on Fridays for one and one-half hours. The aim of the program is to teach you the basic fundamentals of tango that will help you feel confident on the dance floor. We’ll give you the tools you need to succeed and feel great in all of the tango social dances (milongas) around the city.

Our six weeks Fundamentals Program covers these concepts: The couple connection (“tango feeling”) and its etiquette, managing spaces and energies in the embrace, understanding basic musicality, the walk in parallel and cross systems, navigation strategies for the dance floor, the spot movements, movements around an axis, movements with pivots .

Each week focuses on one fundamental concept. The first hour of class is a technique class, devoted to body awareness, control, and conditioning. We will teach you how to prepare and understand your body for Tango. No partner necessary.

Attire: Please bring your slickest soled shoes – hard leather is good – as we will be pivoting on a ballet floor. Short heels or flats for followers, but stiletto heels and very high heels are not permitted. Please bring separate shoes to dance in, not shoes you have worn outside. Wear any comfortable clothes that allow for movement.

Fridays 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Tuition: $90 (includes 6 classes)
