BOSTON BEGINNER TANGO CLASSES: Absolute Beginning (8 weeks)
PLEASE NOTE: No partner required for Boston Beginner Tango Classes. Join at any time or wait for the beginning of next cycle.
Argentine Tango, the most passionate and addictive dance. The dance that reflects life so closely that it makes you wonder how this is even possible. Once you enter tango world it changes you forever. It will also empower you with ability to dance and make friends anywhere in the world as you master your Tango language.
For us Tango is not just a dance. It’s a philosophy. You will not learn it by simply repeating followers steps and leaders steps and putting them both together at teacher’s count. There is more into it. Tango is about building the relationships, sharing feelings, developing sensitivity, creating sensuality, enjoying the music. And so much more.
Tango is a dance with no end. It’s a living body language. The more you know the better you can talk, the more you understand. Its hidden beauty will reveal itself to you little by little.
If you are enchanted by Argentine Tango passionate moves or have friends that you don’t see no more cause they always ‘tangoing’ making you all curious or you simply always wanted to learn how to dance Argentine Tango – this is the great way to start. Simply show up and we show you how to tango.
