Monthly initiation workshop of argentine tango in Paris


initiation
This initiation workshop is mandatory for all persons having no knowledge of argentine tango or wanting to revise the basics.
The tango that is taught corresponds to the tango commonly practiced in balls and not to stage/show tango. More than the determined apprenticeship of figure, it has for goal to teach the different notions allowing the dancer to dance with any partner (transfer of body weight, balance, specific role of each dancer in the couple, management of the dance space, respect of the rythm, etc...).
The acquisition of these basic notions prepares the dancer to join a beginner course (first level).
For this workshop it is preferable but not indispensable to come to the workshop in a couple. You can also have a look on our Tango Partner ads

When ?

It is not possible to follow solely the second session, without having followed the first session.
These workshops take place each month.
