Weekly Tango Classes at Art in Motion in Sharpsburg
Fall classes at Art in Motion begin October 6, 2016
Thursdays 8-9pm: Argentine Tango FUNDAMENTALS
Argentine tango differs from ballroom tango and stage tango, in its embrace and on its focus on social dancing, communication, and learning the tools for improvisation. Tango Fundamentals is designed for brand new students and those dancing tango under 1 year. This curriculum is progressive, but classes will review content from previous lessons. Sessions are monthly, but learning will be maximized for everyone if classes are taken for the full semester (3 months). No partner needed. You can choose to lead, follow, or learn both roles.
