• What we'll do
Come join Rochester Tango for our FIRST "Milonga de Flores"!
We are honored to have guest instructor, and the 2016 US Argentine Tango Champion, Adam Cornett come and teach two workshops before the Milonga!

This will be the first of many of our Gala Milongas here in Rochester. We're celebrating with great music, dancing, refreshments, and flowers.

Dress to impress, the theme is floral patterns!

~~~ Schedule ~~~
6:00pm - 7:30pm - Musicality: Rhythmic additions for followers and leaders (Intermediate).
This class will explore playful rhythmic elements that will add variety and spice to your dance. We’ll practice leading, following, and embellishing one of the most common rhythmic motifs in tango music.

7:30pm - 9:00pm - Connection: Tango is all about the connection. (All-Level).
In this class, we'll explore how to use our bodies to communicate effectively with our partners. We'll focus on refining how to lead and follow the building blocks of tango: linear movement and circular rotation.

~~~ Adam Cornett ~~~
Adam began his obsession with dance in 2000, when he found tango. The organic movement and improvisational nature of tango appealed to his desire for exploration. The desire to continually experiment and share his own discoveries led Adam to begin traveling and teaching throughout the US. He has a deep and varied background in kinesthetics and movement that he applies to his dancing, ranging from study in the martial arts, to formal education in the fields of medicine and massage therapy. His teaching style is grounded and tactile, as he experiences tango as a physical, reactionary dance. His aim is to make the dance feel good, as well as look good. He encourages his students to be creative, inventive, playful, and musical, as these are the qualities he cherishes most about tango. Adam moved to Boston in 2014 and was invited to teach at MIT, Brown, and Yale. In 2016 he took over as one of the new owners of Providence Tango in Rhode Island. Adam currently is partnering with Maria Ines Bogado for the month of March 2018 where they will teach in Boston, Providence, and at the Tucson Tango Festival.
