About the Class = Mixed-Levels/Tango : AdvBeg to  IntAdv (not for brand new beginners) 
Pre-requisites: Familiar with a few basic  tango walking formations, such as the quadrado, 8 count basic to X, rocking and turning corners. Feedback from last weeks trial class: experienced dancers find my mixed-level topics challenging and useful!
Class Concept: Material will be formally taught for 1 hour, after which students  are intended to continue to practice it for 20 -30 minutes during the community practica with the instructor’s  guidance.  After that, everyone should feel free to circulate within  the community practica.

Class Focus:   Improvisational exercises and explorations  to enhance your creativity and understanding of tango’s basic  structures and encourage   you to work within them   more freely & musically. Learn to trust yourself and your partner, relax and have fun. Forget about  a perfect, fancy or flawless dance for now and instead explore how tango communication works…remember it takes TWO to tango! 

Pre-requisites: Familiarlity with a few basic  tango walking formations, such as the quadrado, 8 count basic to the cross, rocking and turning corners.

Goal: Those with more advanced knowledge will discover new combinations within their habitual  patterns while beginners will  learn to move more fluidly within and between  their  known forms. Tango vocabulary will be reinforced and at the same time deconstructed. Motto: There are no wrong steps in tango; Only getting lost and found again. 

Oct 8  Emphasis: Follower’s participation in  tango communication and expression: Finding musicality and dynamic connection with  the embrace and the embellishments and being responsive by taking responsibility. Leaders – allow space &  surrender control; listen for the time to interject and/or move on.
