When you arrive at the dance studio in Buenos Aires, meet your experienced instructor, who will teach you the musical and technical aspects of tango, which is based on walking with your partner across the floor at the appropriate speed, pausing at dramatic moments to express the passion and emotion of the dance.
First, listen to the musical rhythms of the accordion and other instruments, which set the mood and tempo of the dance. Next, learn the proper way to begin, forming the Argentine-style ‘close embrace’ with the lead dancer and follower connecting chest-to-chest. Then, practice some basic steps across the wooden dance floor as you catch your own reflection in the mirror.
Whether you’re a beginner or you have some prior dance training, you’ll appreciate the simplicity and elegance of the graceful movements, and experience a memorable part of authentic Argentinean culture. Plus, with a private lesson, you can be sure you’ll receive attentive instruction.
