Tango Connections Classes - DDC
Tango Connections Classes with Lori Mitchell & Patrick Marsolek. Beginning class 6:30 - 7:35 pm. Continuing class 7:50 - 8:55 pm. Advanced class: Tue, 7:30 - 8:30 pm. You can learn Argentine Tango, a highly personal and expressive social dance that can be danced to many different styles of music. It all starts with walking! Walk into a playful, fun, exploration of this exciting, improvisational dance. In the Tango Connection classes, you will learn the basics of the embrace, connection, musicality. Our classes build from week to week with an emphasis on good posture, embrace and awareness of your partner, the music, and the other dancers on the floor. We will dance to the full range of tango music from traditional Argentine, to modern tango orchestras, nuevo and fusion music and non-tango and popular music that works for tango. You will gain an understanding of the different forms of tango from traditional to nuevo (with the showy flourishes) and including tango waltz (Vals) and Milonga. Couples or Singles are welcome as are same-sex couples or individuals who wish to learn a non-traditional role. Students are encouraged to dance with other members of the class to ensure a fuller understanding of the dance. All ages are welcome, all body types, even those of you who ‘can’t dance’.
