Similar to the Milonga sessions, we will start with the ryhthm of Vals, and explore how the communication between the two dancers change from tango. We will then explore fundamental steps for the vals.

DETAILS OF THE COURSE
Do you have cadencia? We’re sure you’ve seen these extraordinary dancers who are skillfully playing with the music, whilst at the same time being incredibly connected to the rythm and the phrasing of the song. What they do seem to be simple, yet…

These two sessions will profoundly transform how you dance tango, freeing you from the question ‘what should I do next’, and providing you with the tools to make you a true dancer.

18/06/2017: Special ROYAL ASCOT Milonga [EVENING EDITION]

By |June 6th, 2017|

SPECIAL EVENT: ROYAL ASCOT evening milonga on June 18. Bring your hats!

On June 18th, we are celebrating Argentina’s second love after tango – horses – with a twist: our very own ROYAL ASCOT evening milonga!

Por Una Cabeza… throughout its history the world of horses have always colluded with that of Tango.
From gambling (the famous Cabeza song is, after all, a tragic story of gambling loss at the races), to milonguero gatherings at the Hipódromo in Palermo. And of course Argentina’s love affair with polo – such are the renowned skills of Argentine players that those who play for overseas clubs are called “hired assassins”.

And because England is also hot on the topic with the Ascot racecourses, we are celebrating with our first ROYAL ASCOT milonga. Bring your Fascinator ladies, gentlemen, dress smartly: it is going to be a night to remember!

07/06/2017: Single Axis Turns [Wedn. lesson]

By |June 6th, 2017|

This Wednesday 07.06 at LOS ANGELITOS: master the art of Single Axis Turns!

Some say they are the most beautiful steps in tango. Why? Because, for the briefest of moments, both dancers share their axis and truly merge into one person, for the time of the turn. To the outside world, it may look like this moment only lasts for a short time, but inside the couple, nothing else exists than this shared moment, that blissfully seems to stretch for much longer.

Single axis turns are at the same time delicate and full of energy. Come and explore one of the reasons tango is loved by so many people around the world.

=== PROGRAMME ===

» 7pm BEGINNERS & IMPROVERS (60-min): the ABC of pivots
» 8pm INTERMEDIATES & ADVANCED (90-min): SINGLE AXIS TURNS: TECHNIQUE & MUSICALITY
» 9.30pm PRACTICA
» Beginners/Improvers £12, Intermediates & Advanced £16 (includes practica until late)
» Unity, 277A Upper street, Angel N1 2TZ (tube: Angel)

Nos vemos!
