New First Friday class starts 9/6/2019!

Please join us for a 1-hour, beginner level class on Argentine Tango basics with practice time afterwards. If you are not a beginner, you can come practice from 7-8:30 PM. Afterwards, let’s all go across the street for food and socializing at Ex Novo!

The cost is $15/person, or $25/couple. If you have a punchcard for my other classes, you can use that for this class as well!

Please wear non-marking shoes. Practice shoes, socks, tango shoes, ballroom shoes—whatever you feel comfortable in works!

There is parking in the U.S. Bank building lot across the street; or in the temporary public parking around the old Arthur Murray dance studio building, next to Global Art of Dance. There is also street parking. Please do not park in the tea house parking: it LOOKS like it belongs to the dance studio, but it does not. Thanks!

Wednesdays @ noon: Tango Toning & Technique

If you want to take your technique to the next level, this class is for you! This class is dedicated to improving YOUR dance, so that when you dance with someone, you bring the most that you can to your half of the couple.

Although the class is weighted towards follower technique, those of you who want to become good leaders will find that the same work applies to you! Everyone is welcome, even total beginners. Everyone is working at their level, and I can adapt what we are doing to make it more basic—or more advanced—for each dancer.

The class has a brief warmup. After that, we do drills focusing on balance, alignment and building strength for your dance. Depending on who comes to class, we might work on: walking, adornos, pivoting, free leg work (boleos, ganchos, etc.).

Cost

  • Drop in: $15/person

  • Punchcard for 10 lessons: $120 (to be used in 4 months)

Notes

There is no parking lot: sorry! When we do weekend or evening classes, U.S. Bank lot across the street can be used. There is free street parking, but come a few minutes early to make sure to find a space. Please don’t park in the tea house parking.
