Glasgow Tango Studio
El Abrazo Milonga + Beginner's Taster Class and Presentation

Fri 3 May 2019

Tonight El Abrazo Milonga hosts a taster class of Argentine Tango for total beginners from 7-8pm. To dance tango we need the Tango connection. Thereafter we can communicate with our partners in this beautiful movement language. We walk in unison to interpret the music and will enjoy the first steps of our tango journey. During the class we work in couples, one learning to lead the other to follow. You can come along with a partner or alone. We cannot guarantee a gender balance but everyone will have a partner to dance with. Please wear comfy shoes that will allow some pivoting (avoid rubber soles).

The class is followed by a 30-minute long presentation by Glasgow Tango Studio’s co-founders, dance professionals Sari Lievonen and Jeff Allan. They demonstrate different Tango styles and reveal also how this music and dance has come to be enjoyed globally in the 21st century. The presentation is suitable for those new to Tango as well as those already having begun their tango journey.

After the presentation the evening continues with social dancing in the El Abrazo Milonga, 8.30-11pm with music from Tango DJ Jeff Allan. Those having taken the beginner's class are welcome to stay on and observe how tango is danced by experienced dancers in the formal context of a milonga.
