Argentine tango is about communicating and constantly re-interpreting musical variety with your partner through simple walking steps. Social Tango dancing is not a flashy or acrobatic performance; rather it is danced for the pleasure of the two people dancing. This is a progressive workshop that will introduce you to the fundamentals of tango step-by-step. No partner or experience is necessary.
