Description

In these classes, you will learn the fundamentals of Argentine Tango. 

We start with exercises developing balance, coordination and body posture as a warm-up. We then continue with tango walking, lead and follow communication, navigation on the dance floor, musicality and basic “figures” or “steps”. After 5 classes, you will know basic steps, understand better tango musicality and gained an improved confidence working with dance partners.

Classes are always a lot of fun so come along and start your tango journey with Victoria Tango now!
