Glasgow Tango Studio Argentine Tango Beginner's Taster Class, Presentation & Social Dance
Fri 13 September 2019
Glasgow Tango Studio's El Abrazo Milonga hosts a taster class of Argentine Tango for total beginners from 7-8pm. Come and discover the simple secrets of this passionate dance.
To dance tango we have to create 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 the leader's role while the other learns the follower's role. You can come along with a partner or alone, singles will be partnered with other singles. We cannot guarantee a gender balance but everyone will have a partner to learn with. Please wear comfy shoes, ideally leather/suede soled shoes to allow pivoting. For followers little bit of heel is better than no heel, while for leaders ordinary formal shoes are the best choice.
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.
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 for the formal social dance called Milonga, either just observing more experienced dancers or joining in the ronda if you feel ready for some more dancing.
