Available spots


This course provides a concise and holistic overview of the fundamentals of tango, from scratch. The aim is to give you all the tools you need to get started in Argentine Tango. You may like to take this course once, twice - or even three times, as the basics of tango are profound and take time to grasp (though once you "click", it stays!). You do not need any experience or a partner to book this course. In collaboration with Reading Tango Club: Note: You do not have to book the entire course to attend these classes. Prices per individual class (pay at the door) are £12 standard/ £6 full time student (18-25) -------------------------- The programme at a glance: Week 1 - Where it all starts: weight changes and the Tango Walk. Week 2 - A silent dialogue: connecting to our partner through the Tango Embrace. Week 3 - Learn to turn: pivots, ochos, and how to lead them. Week 4 - Putting it together: key sequences for your repertoire. Week 5 - Four feet, once dance: the cross and parallel systems. Week 6 - Get creative! Learn to improvise with everything you know. ------------------------- By the end of the course you will be ready to progress onto the next level. We suggest taking the course more than once in order to get a solid understanding of the material. WHERE: The Abbey School, 17 Kendrick Rd, Reading, RG1 5DZ Free on-site parking available. WHEN: Saturdays afternoons from 3:45pm - 4:45pm. WHAT TO BRING: Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes (with or without a heel). We recommend a pair of shoes that can easily slide on the floor, especially for followers (avoid thick rubber soles). You do not need dance shoes but in time you might like to invest in some to protect your feet and move more freely.
