Join us for Tango in OC!
We will focus mainly on Argentine Tango in our classes, but will also incorporate a bit of American Tango. Alec often mixes the two on the floor, and believes it's highly useful to understand both.
Tango is the ultimate lead/follow partner dance. Whether a lead or a follow, you will sharpen skills, and your ability to play your part in the physical conversation that is Tango. We will work on body language, clear signals, subtlety, musicality, and a variety of moves.
Aside from classes, I organize outings for all interested dancers to hit a milonga (public tango dance), at which we can use our newfound skills! I also encourage you to spread the word about touring Tango shows, and any Tango performances happening in SoCal that our members may enjoy.
My goal is to create a more all ages Tango scene in OC, where younger, newer dancers feel comfortable exploring this passionate art alongside veteran dancers. This class is open to all ages, teenagers to seniors, so come discover this powerful, beautiful dance, and bring your friends...they will thank you for introducing them to Tango!!!
See you on the dance floor! ~Alec
