Each week, the combined class and practice sessions will focus on introducing and reviewing fundamental skills such as 'lead and follow,” connecting to your partner and to the music, navigating on the dance floor, and building vocabulary for your own personal 'tango conversation.'  There will be additional practice time for all dancers at the end of the evening.
No experience in any dance form is necessary for beginners, and no partner is needed.  Come alone, or bring your friends. Please wear comfortable clothes and clean dance shoes or heavy socks for easy pivoting on the floor.
