Monthly initiation workshop of argentine tango in Paris
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
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
