We will announce that our next “Introduction to Tango” course, ‘6 classes over 6 weeks’ program at a later date.
The ‘6 classes over 6 weeks for $60pp’ program is designed for complete beginners and will take you on your first steps into a new, exciting and exhilarating experience.
Sensual and passionate, Tango is as individual as you. Its minimalist, basic steps can provide you with a dance of classic simplicity or intricate beauty. It all depends how far you want to take it!
In the 6 Group Classes over 6 weeks, you will learn the essentials of Tango: how to connect with your partner, musicality, the tango walk, basic steps, floor-craft and etiquette. You will develop a sensitivity to lead/follow as you begin to mix with others enrolled in the same program.
The course aims to sufficiently develop your tango dancing skills so that you can dance socially by the end of six weeks. And to ensure the highest quality experience, this course will be limited to 20 participants, so to make sure you aren’t disappointed.
Should you be unable to commit to the next 6 weeks – single beginners lessons (at the same time & place as the course above) are available.
Interim Tuesday Night Venue from 21st January 2020:
St Francis Xavier’s Church Hall
