Regular Group Classes
Argentine Tango is one of the most romantic and
intimate dances, demanding a close connection between partners. All movements are led by men and women have to follow with
their sensitivity and awareness of her leader's energy. When you learn with us, you will discover that you don’t need
to memorize any choreography. In tango, people can dance with a stranger and feel perfect connection if they can lead and
follow well. That’s why Tango is said to be a 3-mins love affair when you dance with all your heart.
introduction courses, the foundation elements of Argentine Tango will be taught, such as the Basic Steps, Cross, Ocho and
Parada among others. And we will focus on some core techniques as well, like walking, and framing techniques in leading and
following. In addition, we will also do demonstrations to different kinds of music, like Vals, milonga (fast Tango music),
Nuevo Tango music and also traditional Tango music. After this course, students should be able to start dancing in milongas
(Tango parties) and know more about different kinds of the dance and music.
No need to bring
a partner with you, partners are rotated during each class.

to a song with simple steps, getting students more comfortable with dancing in close embrace.

who are re-taking improver level at the same time. Students should already know ochos, media luna, basic giros, sacadas. Students

Ladies Technique Class
for students who has finished beginner level or above.
Please wear pants and
bring a pair of socks, and of course Tango shoes to classes. Floor works and stretching exercises will be included
to strengthen your body/leg power.
Different solo exercises will be used to get you (and your body muscle) understand the techniques in tango with details in
the movements including walking, ochos, giro, boleo, ganchos, etc. Embellishment will also be introduced to
make you look more elegant and stylish in dancing. Beside, secrets of inducing more sensual
feelings in the dance will also be shared.
The exercises taught in class can be done at home, it's a good way to prepare ourselves to be able to do the movement on our own with
perfect balance and with ease, so that when we dance with men, we can concentrate on following their lead, and so, you
can be more sensitive, and at the same time, be naturally elegant!
This class suitable for improver or above, as we have to go back to the fundamental techniques again
and again to perfect them and refine them with more details.
We shall work on walking, embrace,
energy, alignments, connection... and all other aspects that make you dance with better quality instead of with quantities
of steps or embellishments.
Milonga / Vals Class
This class suitable for those who are comfortable with basic leading and following
We shall work on elements
in milonga and vals, musicality, common patterns of movements, special characteristics of them, qualities of them... to help
