Course Description

Build  on what you know  and acquire the skills you need independently to  communicate together on the dance floor. Using  familiar points of contact as a place  of departure,  students will develop figures that invite participation from followers as much as leads.

Touches, taps, kicks or  wraps? Combinations may include bits of callecitas, sacadas, sweeps, ganchos, boleos, embellishments, and so forth. The point here is not to master a step concept but to co-create as a group of men and women, a dance that is engaging for both roles, depending on your abilities.  Exercises presented to improve  posture and mechanics  as well as encourage expression.  Let’s  show the world: It Takes Two to Tango! 
Registration & level  info: Please call me if you have any questions re your level.  I do not expect students  to have mastered these concepts, but at least  have some basic exposure/familiarity with them and a motivation to learn about their best use. Dancers do not need to do everything to be interesting!  I will base the material  on the  collective tango knowledge  of the participants. I am also sensitive to aging bodies and  know there are followers that understand the definition of a high boleo  but   most prudently are not going to risk injury attempting to do one!  Most tango moves adapt well to  a smaller less vigorous execution, with the exception of the  classic gancho, which done half-way, fails it’s name: to hook!
Please pre-register by email, text or phone.  Payment is excepted by e-transfer, cash, or cheque to M.Spore.  I need a commitment of 8 plus people in order to use a rented studio fro the class. Less than 8 and I will make other arrangements.  Role balances maintained when possible.
Cost: 6 weeks = $80/couples $150
Plus $10 for series if enrolment is 6 or less!
Schedule:  Wednesday, Oct 30  is not part of the class series. It will be devoted to review of Bobby Thomspon’s weekend, a separate & additional class for those who attended his workshops.
