Improver level will focus on connecting elements so that students can start dancing to a song with simple steps, getting students more comfortable with dancing in close embrace, and in milonga situations.
Suitable for students who has finished at least 1 cycle of improver level, and those who are re-taking improver level at the same time. Students should already know ochos, media luna, basic giros, sacadas. Students should already have milonga experience.
Intermediate level will focus on more movement concepts like boleo, ganchos, barridas… etc. Through these movements, students will be trained with more techniques and more options in the dance to handle dance floor navigation.
Body Technique Class
Suitable for students who has finished beginner level or above, both men & women.
Please wear pants and bring a pair of socks, and of course Tango shoes to classes. Floor works and stretching exercises will be included to strengthen your body/leg power.
Different solo exercises will be used to get you (and your body muscle) understand the techniques in tango with details in the movements including walking, ochos, giro, boleo, ganchos, etc. Embellishment will also be introduced to make you look more elegant and stylish in dancing. Beside, secrets of inducing more sensual feelings in the dance will also be shared.
The exercises taught in class can be done at home, it’s a good way to prepare ourselves to be able to do the movement on our own with perfect balance and with ease, so that when we dance with a partner, we can concentrate your attention towards your partners, and so, you can be more sensitive, and at the same time, be naturally elegant!
