Join us for Tango in OC!
This is a beginner friendly class, part of the ongoing lessons I am teaching in Mission Viejo. No partner required, we will be rotating :) Try to get there between 7:50 and 8pm so that we can start on time.
8pm to 9pm lesson
9pm to 9:30pm time for socializing/practice/questions/coaching.
We will focus mainly on Argentine Tango in these sessions, but will also incorporate a bit of American Tango. I almost always mix the two on the floor, and believe 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.
After a few of these sessions, I will organize outings for all interested dancers to hit a milonga (public tango dance), at which we will use our newfound skills!
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 :)
