You’ll find here a selection of blog posts specially dedicated to non tango dancers or recent beginners.

The tango world is a bit like a milonga tune: it suddenly speeds up and then a pause sneaks up on you without warning – that’s when you can breathe.

Our blog page is a bit similar, sometimes quiet and sometimes showing serious signs of hyperactivity. In any case, we’ll try to remain in control and call the tune. If you feel we’re sluggish, you can always send us a TASBO (PS: that’s a Tango ASBO).

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Planeos

Planeos... Another beautiful, aerial tango family step. In the beginner class, we started with two classic planeos, one from the backward ocho and the other from the forward ocho. In the second class, we were a bit more adventurous and saw an off-axis planeo, a planeo on both legs and a very nice planeo from a sentada (a personal favourite)

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Linear volcadas

In this class, for beginners and improvers, we saw a simple pivot from the sandwich - we really like this step, it's cute and romantic. We then moved on to a first linear volcada from the back cross (a classic) and another linear volcada with the follower's right leg (much more original).

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Pasadas/paradas

To start our new term, we focused on paradas and pasadas, these steps where the follower steps over the leader's leg. We started with a simple combination for beginners and then explored a pasada in backward ocho followed by a single axis turn for the intermediates and up. Challenging but also beautiful!
