Dimension: Immersion - Theme: Playing with different time signatures

Playing with different time signatures, e.g when the leader and the follower don't follow the same rythm, is an incredibly powerful tool to add spice and personality to your tango. In this class, we looked at some classic steps that use different time signatures.

Dimension: Immersion - Theme: Caminatas

Tango is a walking dance and therefore the walk plays a large role in making your tango expressive. In this class, we looked at a few old fashioned and traditional tango walks, with some leaders' adornments.

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Colgadas

If we ran a survey, milongueros across the world would probably say that colgadas are the scariiiiiest step there is! Don't fret though, in this class, we saw how to use the concept of shared axis in a safe, fun and beautiful way.

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Pasada

This class started with a simple square around the leader for beginners. In the intermediate class, we added variant to this step, with a boleo, a giro and a change of direction. We also saw a step we particularly like, a pasada using the follower's back foot.

This is the first class of our series on axis. In this class, we started with the basic concepts of axis displacement and some pretty mini colgadas that are very easy to place on the dancefloor.

A Summer night at la Parrilla, Buenos Aires

By |February 19th, 2019|

From Nathalie, Tanguito's correspondent in Buenos Aires

Flight BA0245 dropped me in Buenos Aires on January 19. Argentinians like to do things big. Big steaks. Strong Malbec. Sickeningly sweet dulce de leche (sorry amigos, we love you to bits but we think our Nutella tastes better than your dulce de leche). Melancholy tangos that grab you by the heart and won’t let you go. Sizzling hot summers.
