  • NO MILONGA
    All day
    2019.07.27

    There will be no milonga on Saturday.

    Come to the Sunday Práctica on July 28 to say goodbye to our guest teacher Melina Mistral!

  • Follower’s Tech 1 w/Melina
    12:00 -13:15
    2019.07.27

    2 Daly Avenue

    2 Daly Avenue

    Note: Saturday’s workshops are for followers only. Registrations will be limited to 16 to 18 followers for an optimal learning experience.

    Followers’ Technique I (All levels)
    As Melina often says in her classes, “If you do not try and then fail, then you will never be able to do it.” Pushing your body in movements that it isn’t used to and looking like a duck trying to skate as you do them is necessary to eventually look and feel good while you dance. Embellishments are part of it all and with her series of exercises, Melina will bring new confidence, expression, elegance, and power to your dance.

  • Follower’s Tech 2 w/Melina

    172 Guigues Avenue, Ottawa, ON

    The Reverse Cross (Intermediate and up)
    Most Tango dancers practice only one type of cross, which is lead from the parallel or cross system, but the beauty of Tango is the array of possibilities based on improvisation. What if you reversed that cross or mirrored it? Lead it from a side step or a forward step for the follower? If you want to have fun deconstructing a step you thought you had mastered, come check out this class!

  • All Types of Walks w/Melina

    2019.07.28

    172 Guigues Avenue, Ottawa, ON

    172 Guigues Avenue, Ottawa, ON

    All Types of Walks (All levels)
    Many students say they get bored of “just” walking, but they’re actually bored with doing the same walk over and over. Each song and orchestra brings a different story, a different emotion, and a different cadencia that will affect and change the steps you chose and the type of walk you use. Focusing on three different orchestras, you will work on different types of walks, in different systems and different sequences. This understanding is what will bring your Tango to a whole other level.
