Learn Argentine Tango in Midtown Detroit
Come and learn Argentine Tango in the N'Namdi Movement Center every Wednesday with Randy and Alex! 6-8 pm Guided Practica Tango traditionally wasn't learned in classrooms. It was learned with practice, practice, practice. Come to our Practica where we will introduce guided exercises to build our foundation, and combinations to challenge our brains. No experience necessary. If you're a beginner, get there right at 6 pm. We will begin each week by rotating through foundational concepts that you can use to build your dance. Then halfway through, we will use those foundational skills to build intermediate level patterns to challenge our tango minds creatively. Practicas are fun, inviting and inclusive. Bring friends, but no partner necessary; we will switch partners throughout to grow as adaptable social dancers! All ages welcome, anyone invited to lead or follow (no gender binaries here). Come help us build Argentine Tango in Detroit. Drop ins welcome, but great package discounts available! COST: $10 LOCATION: N'Namdi Movement Center 52 E. Forest Detroit, MI ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS: Randy began dancing tango in 2000 and, after years of dancing/teaching between Buenos Aires and San Francisco, moved home to Detroit to begin the Detroit Tango Project in 2011. Alex grew up dancing and began tango in 2008 in Buenos Aires. She moved from NYC to Detroit in 2012, where she now teaches dance and yoga and practices Thai massage. Both Randy and Alex are avid social dancers, celebrating dance for physical and mental health and as a way to build connection and to connect us with community.
