Tango Classes

Evolving in Argentina and Uruguay, ballroom tango also formed from the influence of Europeans, American, Hollywood, and competitive requirements. Ballroom tango has two different styles: American and International. Both styles feature a closed position but utilize an open position to perform many of tango’s movements.

Beginning
Beg Tango
While the original Argentine tango focuses on the partners' embrace and technique, when exported to America and Europe, the emphasis was on the fun and theatrics! Ballroom's version of "the sexiest dance in the world" is striking and unforgettable. This class is an overview of posture and frame, and moves such as tango walks, promenades, and resolutions you'll use to dance to a whole song with confidence such as "Por Una Cabeza" as featured in "Scent of a Woman". Try this class for a taste of ballroom's most dramatic social dance!
In the next two weeks, this class is being offered:Monday, November 27 - 7:00p With: Melaina Brill Irvine, CA
