•        firuletes for followers and leaders to add ‘spice’ to their dance

Relaxed small class. Contact Anna 0418 684 583

In 20 years of dancing in Buenos Aires, Europe and Asia, we have observed, learned from and danced with the best Argentinian teachers and performers. They dance in a very different way in milongas - especially in Buenos Aires.

Like the Buenos Aires milongueros, they dance in an intimate embrace, totally engaged with their partner. Their sole aim is to express the richness of the great tango pieces as played by the great orquestas. They use tango figures in a deeply musical, ‘less is more’ fashion – so that they are free to fully and mutually experience all the moods and rhythms of this wonderful music.

The aim of our classes is to guide new and experienced dancers to this level of experience.

? the need for spacial awareness when dancing.

? the use of the Spiral Line to facilitate the free leg.

? basic pivot technique, how hip stability and breathing effect balance and the use of the ball of the foot.
