Argentine Tango Background

 

Argentine Tango originated in the second half of the 19th century in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The intermingling of rich melodies brought in from Europe by immigrants from Italy, Spain, and Germany with the Milonga rhythm being practiced by the locals who had originally arrived as slaves from Africa and the Middle East lead to the birth of Tango music.

In its infancy, Tango was danced solely among the men (Tangueros) as a means to perfect intricate steps and to compete for the attention of the few available women (Tangueras). The music and lyrics are thus usually marked with passion, nostalgia and laments for lost love. Tango reached its pinnacle in the 1940s and today it is danced all over the world.

The striking elements of the dance are the embrace, walk, signature figures and etiquettes. Some passionate dancers have described Tango as a feeling that is danced.

Beginners Class

We will cover the foundational elements of Argentine tango in its open embrace style of dancing to classical and alternate Tango music. No previous experience in Argentine Tango or social dance is required. Also, no partner required. No dress code, however, shades of red and black are encouraged.

7:15 PM to 8:00 PM: Beginners Argentine Tango I

We will cover the basic form and structure of Tango music, walking to the beat, connecting with your partner and walking in open embrace. On top of that we will add some Tango figures viz. the 8 step basic, rock step and figures of 8 - also known as Ochos.

 

8:00 PM to 9:00 PM: Beginners Argentine Tango II

In this class, we will learn and practice the Hero, also known as the Molinete where the follower rotates around the leader like the moon rotating around the earth. We will revisit Ocho’s and learn to combine the figures we have learnt into new patterns of
