6:30 pm 1. Listening and layering: musicality for tango dancers (all levels). Discover ways to express and play with the music to make your dancing more interesting without memorizing a million figures. We’ll explore time, double-time and phrasing as well as touching on syncopation, dancing the melody and conveying the feeling of the music.
8 pm   2. Decorate your dancing (intermediate and up). Accessible and beautiful leader and follower adornos (embellishments) inspired by the music.
Saturday, August 10
1 pm 3. El abrazo milonguero: close-embrace basics (all levels). How to stand, walk and hold your partner in order to get a little (or a lot) closer with comfort and elegance.
2:30 pm 4. El abrazo milonguero 2: cortados, crosses and combos (intermediate and up). Starting with milonguero-style ochos, we will build some elegant and fun mix-and-match sequences tailor-made for close rhythmic dancing.
Sunday, Aug 11
2 pm 5. Cross vs. parallel: sorting out the systems (all levels).  Why do we need two systems and how can we use them to better express the music and manage our space on the floor?(all-levels)
3:30 pm 6.  Milonga! Wow them with simplicity (intermediate and up). Using one basic figure as a foundation, we’ll build some fun, impressive and — of course — musical sequences.
Class length: 75  min / 15 min break between classes/ Plan to arrive  at least 5 minutes early, so we can start on time.
