Beginning Tango

Tango by the River

$15.00

Tango is so much more than some moves or steps. Tango is connection ... connection with your partner, connection with the music, connection with the floor itself, connection with the other dancers on the floor. In this rather sterile world we live in--where an accidental touch often results in an apology--Tango connects us. In our beginning class on Tuesday nights, from 6:30-7:30 pm, you will learn the fundamentals of Argentine Tango! Join us ... get connected ... learn to tango ... and have some fun! Cost is $15 drop-in or $50 for all classes for the month. Click here to sign up now (https://www.rivertango.com/tango-classes) and ensure your space in class! If you don't have a partner, don't worry. We rotate partners in class with every song. Couples who don't want to rotate in class are never required to. All classes & events held at Tango by the River, 128 J Street, in Old Sacramento. [masked]. Check out our website at rivertango.com (https://www.rivertango.com/).

Intermediate Tango

Tango by the River

$15.00

This class assumes you have some familiarity with Argentine Tango. If you are completely new to the tango, you should start with the 6:30-7:30 pm class on Tuesdays. After a month of that class, you're probably ready to move into this Intermediate class on Tuesday nights (7:30-8:30 pm) which focuses on pivots and turns, and how to apply all steps learned so far into the social setting. A practica follows from 8:30-9:30 pm. Indulge in the sensuous pleasure of Argentine tango! Click here to sign up for classes now! (https://www.rivertango.com/tango-classes)

Advanced Tango

Tango by the River

$15.00

Our advanced tango class explores more sophisticated concepts of movement in tango--sharing an axis, moving around one another's axis, off-axis movements. In all our classes, we focus on technique, musicality, and connection within the format of tango for the social dance floor. Class runs every Thursday from 7:00-8:30 p.m., followed by a practica from 8:30-9:30 p.m. Cost is $15 per class or $50 for the month-long series and includes the practica; practica alone is $5. Click here to sign up now. (https://www.rivertango.com/tango-classes) If you are new to the tango, you need to start in the Tuesday classes -- you'll need 3 months of Beginning & Intermediate classes (or instructor okay) before moving into the advanced class on Tuesdays.
