*Argentine Tango Fundamentals of Salon taught by Karen Ma:
Wednesday, 7:00 to 8:00 pm, $20.
Beautify your Argentine Tango. Salon Tango is the basis and foundation which begins your tango journey. In this class, you will learn how to dance to the music, posture, frame, and connection. The students will learn the basic 8, forward ochos, backward ochos, giros, barridas, calicitas and ganchos. Sequences are not taught in class, instead students are taught elements which they will use to piece together their own unique style as the dance is strictly lead/follow. The leaders will be taught how to “mark” a step while the followers will concentrate on clean footwork and balance. Technique is crucial in Tango as balance can easily be affected by your partner. With all the elements in tango, there will also be a heavy emphasis on technique and tidy feet.
*Ballroom Technique taught by Erik Binter:
Wednesdays, 8:00 to 9:00 pm, $20.
Technique is what makes any dancer look good and, more importantly, feel good. In this class, we’ll take a closer look at the fundamental body actions of some of the most common ballroom dances including rumba, waltz, swing, foxtrot, and cha cha. This technique will be practiced with a handful of common figures that will make you a better dancer and a more enjoyable partner on the social floor, at a competition, or anywhere in between. No prior experience is required; everyone from complete beginners and up is welcome. Each week will feature a new dance, so while concepts will build on previous weeks to some extent and everyone is encouraged to attend the whole series, it should still be possible to continue without difficulty if you have to miss one. Please reach out to Erik at email@example.com if you have any questions.
