Online Tango Classes- Live

After a little break, we are back to our online tango classes and this time we are coming in with a schedule full of music! In the previous sessions we spent a lot of our classes working on movement technique, and less on rhythm and music so I think it is time to shift the balance. So get ready for a session full of dancing!

All classes will be held online, through Zoom, and you will have access to all recordings after each class to download, keep for life and hopefully revisit and review. We will also have plenty of prep or follow-up materials so that you can go back to the information any time you need to.

Schedule for our 10 weeks of classes:

  1. Tango Rhythm and Music on
    Sundays 12:30-2:00pm starting on May 9th 

    This is a Tango class for individuals and partners with some experience in Tango. You need to know at least the basics of Tango as we will be working in some of these classes on choreography. The goal is to better understand and manage to embody the different qualities shared by some of the great Tango orchestras but also by different dances like the Milonga and the Tango Vals. We will also touch upon and explore what rhythm is and the roots of Tango in history; all through movement and music of course!
  2. Fitness and stretching on
    Thursdays 5:15-6:15pm starting May 13th

    Low impact fitness and stretching routines that will be built to go hand-in-hand with our Tango. That means that progressively we will be adding more and more dance fitness in this one hour class. No previous experience is required here, as I will be giving out plenty of high and low impact variations

Outline of our Online Tango and Fitness Classes

Tango Classes will have the following outline:

  1. Rhythm; There are many ways to practice rhythm, and we will be doing quite a bit of that during this session. This introductory class is here to set the tone and allow us to explore what rhythm actually is! Knowing that rhythm is just another skill we need to practice, we need to a framework and a content to manage and direct our practice, either in Tango or through our Fitness classes
  2. History of Tango through music; We will dance through the roots of Tango and we will explore the different possible historical paths that got us Tango. We will dance through the rhythms, postures and even social taboos to reach the Tango of today
  3. Rhythmical variations; we will 2 classes here. In one we will look at the rhythmical variations on walks and on the specific combination we identify as ocho cortado.
  4. Tango (4 different orchestras); 4 classes here this time as we will be working on a different orchestra in every class. Learning the intricacies of each one, the different qualities and textures, the different instruments that they would use and more
  5. Tango Vals;  of course Vals couldn’t be missing from our session. We identify the differences for the ballroom type of Waltz and we will explore different ways to “read” the rhythm, with the goal to be able to bring in a Vals all the elements of Tango
  6. Milonga; Closing the session with something spicy. This will be an introductory class to milonga so don’t worry if you haven’t danced to milonga for some time we will have the time to remember and reveal some trips and tricks

Fitness classes will be a combination of low-impact cardio, muscle work, dance fitness, yoga and Pilates. Every class will have a dance fitness component which will be increasing in time as the classes progress

What have our students said about our previous online tango classes:

We asked our students what was the most surprising discovery the made during or after our class; here are their answers:

  • “The beauty of movement when it comes from an awareness of how our bodies were created to move.”
  • Thank you for all you’ve done to help me understand and enjoy movement. I feel more comfortable in my dance and I’ve gained a much deeper appreciation of movement.”
  • “Changes don’t happen right in class, they build up and appear after”
  • “Hmmm. I think it was how much my “thinking” about what I was trying to do helped my ability to do it. In other words – a combination of your explanations which were (mostly) very complete) and practicing very slowly with thought made It possible for me to do things that I didn’t think I could do”
  • “Knowing how my body works during specific movements”
