Argentine Tango Core Techniques: Open Embrace

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Each Wednesday
Wednesday 13 Mar - Wednesday 3 Apr 2013
Triangle Dance Studio, Durham (near RTP), NC

This class focuses on developing the essential techniques of tango that allow us to lead and follow improvisationally, without patterns, in an open embrace. Experienced dancers will be able to focus and improve their open embrace fundamentals while newcomers will be introduced to walking in parallel and cross systems, connection, pivoting, and turning as well as navigating the social dance floor. Each class is 1.5 hours.

Beginners are invited to start with this class or with the Core Techniques: Close Embrace. At least one of those series should be completed before taking Core Techniques: Milonga and Vals.

If you have prior experience in Argentine Tango, and would like to join our classes regularly, you are strongly encouraged to take the Core Techniques classes. Because our methods and approach are very different from the more common classes you might have encountered, even experienced dancers may not be familiar with certain concepts that every one of our classes depends on. Depending on your experience and familiarity with the concepts, you may be asked to take one or more Core Techniques classes before or concurrently with an Explorations class.
